A Learning Community - Welcome from The Headlearner
Welcome to Milton Road Primary School
There is a strong community feel to Milton Road with considerate and supportive parents and carers, a wonderful PTA, a dedicated and talented collegiate faculty of educators, an effective and skilled governing body and delightful, enthusiastic, confident, thoughtful and articulate children.
"We are crew" captures a central element of our ethos. Milton Road's on-going success is a team effort and we all work hard to ensure that the children have a positive learning experience every day.
Our Concentric Curriculum is one which develops the whole child: the personal, intra personal, scholastic, societal and global and this ambition is captured in the curriculum words that you will see on our website of Identity, Connection, Adventure, Citizenship and Planet.
At Milton Road we value and celebrate the uniqueness of every child. We personalise our approach and provide rich learning opportunities designed to promote pro-social and sustainable "future-proof" skills including communication, cooperation, collaboration, compassion and critical and creative thought. We encourage our children to be self-motivated and active learners and they are invited to work with family members on projects at home through our learning platform SeeSaw that allow them to explore, make, bake, design, write, investigate or create as part of personalised blended learning.
We encourage our pupils to be confident and articulate communicators, to think of themselves as global citizens with a developing awareness of broad social and ecological issues and to understand that they can be changemakers with the power to make a positive difference in their school, community and world.
Milton Road is a forward thinking and outward reaching learning community, working in the education eco-system with parents, volunteers and a wide range of educational and other partners to ensure that we offer an excellent and inspiring curriculum and an effective, relevant and research informed pedagogy.
Milton Road has a lot to offer our children and we always keep them at the heart of everything we do.
Thank you for joining Milton Road, this is our community. Let’s see where the adventure takes us and what we can do together!
