Spread your wings and soar to success


Welcome from the Chair of Governors


On behalf of all Governors, Welcome to Milefield Primary School!


As school Governors, we have an important role in monitoring the safety, welfare and education of all our children. To do this, we work as a team with children, staff and parents in an open and caring atmosphere where everyone feels valued.


We are justifiably proud of the achievements of our children across the curriculum and of the high standards maintained in both learning and behaviour.


Governors have responsibility in ensuring that school planning is ambitious yet realistic and that the school operates in an environment conducive to learning. It is our role to support and encourage the Headteacher and all staff to ensure each individual pupil has opportunity to progress. We are also involved in various aspects of school operation including:


·         Staff Appointments


·         Finance


·         Pupil Welfare


·         Buildings & Maintenance


·         Public Relations


Please take the time to browse our school website, including our Governors page, where you will find more information about Milefield Primary School.


I would like to thank all parents and staff for the support and encouragement they give Milefield children and the school. For children, this support nurtures key social and creative skills especially in these early years and helps build confidence and self-esteem. Parent interest and support in promoting the school is invaluable and ensures Milefield has a strong partnership with the local community.


I am available to parents, carers and visitors to discuss any matter relating to the school and I am always pleased to receive positive feedback. Together we can help Milefield maintain high standards and prosper for current children and future generations.


Mrs J Fewster
