Welcome from the Headteacher
Milton CE Primary is a diverse community where children are encouraged to explore and celebrate individuality, and to build upon who they are to achieve success. Our school is welcoming, happy and caring. In keeping with our Christian foundation we focus on personal qualities through the values we teach, to establish the relationships necessary to succeed both socially and intellectually. Our pupils become good communicators, with a ‘have a go’ attitude, and the confidence to learn from their mistakes and move onwards.
My vision for Milton’s future is to accelerate the development of this successful 21st century school so that we prepare every child in our community to make a success of his or her life. I believe that all children, regardless of their background, have the right to achieve and succeed, not just academically, and to become well rounded, healthy, happy human beings.
I believe in an open door policy and would urge parents to contact me with any concerns no matter how small. A successful education is the culmination of home and school working together, so it is important to ensure that communication is a two way process.
I look forward to meeting you.
Milton School promotes and develops its distinctive nature as a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School in partnership with its Parish, and the Diocese of Ely. We are an academy that is part of the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust. The school shares with the other Church primary schools in the Diocese of Ely the following ethos statement: Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers all pupils.
So that is it for another year. Wishing you all a relaxing break and a very happy summer. Stay safe and see you in September if you are returning. For those that are not, good luck in the adventures that are waiting. https://t.co/PJRzBVFflU
On his last day, we had to give Mr Robinson a special job so he got to dig up the year 6 time capsule. The year 6 got a chance to look back at their thoughts, ideas and fears from last summer. Oh how they have changed!
So the Year 6 leavers’ party is well underway! The sun is shining and the inflatables are being enjoyed by everyone. It’s so lovely to be able to give them a celebration at the end of their time at Primary School. We will miss them and wish them well for the new adventures ahead.
Bumblebee Class have been watching some caterpillars develop into butterflies. Four beautiful Painted Lady butterflies hatched, one sadly did not. The children chose to release them at our sensory garden and bury the other chrysalis there.
Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim families and friends celebrating currently.
Year 2 used hydroponics to germinate bean seeds and then planted them in the sensory garden to watch them grow. This week the beans were harvested and today the children were able to taste them. They loved them! xx
Bumblebees were finally able to finish their puppets this week. They were started before Christmas but then the bubble closed. It’s been a long wait but we all think it was worth it!
Year 3 chitted potatoes in April, planted them in the allotment when they were ready, took care of them and then today…..ate them! 🌱 🪴 Quotes… ‘the most delicious potato I've ever had.’ ‘Mrs Coloumbus cooks the best potatoes.’ ‘They are amazing, so tasty!’ Wonderful!
