Here at Millbrook the children are integral to our curriculum design.

Using their initial ideas as sparks, our dedicated team of teaching and support staff guide the children in making choices about what and how they want to learn. This may be based on the interests that the children have, or inquiry based learning; something that they have seen or heard and would like to know more about.

Learning should be purposeful. Our termly themes start with an educational visit that 'sets the scene' for learning, whilst demonstrating how the area of study fits into our world.

Learning should be practical. Staff and pupils alike enjoy being 'up and active'. Whilst text books have a place, we like to be creative in our approach to teaching and bring learning out from behind the desk! The real meaning of creativity involves children being allowed to take risks, make mistakes and problem solve which are all features of our innovative curriculum.Role play allows the children to bring the real world into the classroom and to have experiences using their imaginations.

Learning should be relevant. Our pupils are our future and the world is an ever changing place. At Millbrook it is our duty to equip them with the skills they will need in order to make well informed choices now and later in life. The starting point for our curriculum is skills.  

A school's curriculum should provide pupils with strong roots, by developing life long skills, and wings to fly, knowing that anything is possible. 

We are proud of what we do - come and see it for yourself!
