Millfields' Curriculum


Millfields Primary School and Nursery aspires to provide an education where children are taught the skills to develop a lifelong love of learning. Through developing curiosity, creativity and resilience, we empower our children to become ambitious learners who are able to work independently, are empathetic and supportive of others and have the self-belief needed for a successful future.


At Millfields Primary School and Nursery, we believe that learning should be exciting, purposeful and challenging. Our school aims to inspire and prepare every child to have high expectations of themselves. We will achieve this through providing a creative and challenging curriculum which motivates and encourages all children to reach their potential.

We want all our children to be happy, confident and inquisitive learners.
