Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Visitor
We wish you a very warm welcome to the Mill Hill Primary School website and hope that by using the site, you will get a picture of our vision, aims and of the values we uphold.
All schools have their own unique identity and we believe that at Mill Hill Primary School, we have created a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages our pupils to fully learn and develop.
Our strong and committed Governing body, fully supports the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all.
Our talented staff use their expertise and experience to extend the opportunities our pupils are given, both in the classroom and in a range of extra-curricular clubs, trips and activities.
Through their hard work and great attitude, children leave our school ready to face the excitement and challenges of secondary school, armed with resilience and a ‘can do’ attitude. They are confident in their ability to organise themselves, make new friends and have a positive attitude to learning.
Please enjoy finding out about our school on our website. If you would like further information, please contact us through the school office; we would be delighted to help.
With best wishes,
Dean Marshall
Headteacher

What have you done today to make you feel proud?

School held its ‘Academic Achievement Awards’ ceremony today, 17th July, 2017. This annual event gives staff the opportunity to nominate pupils, who have made a major effort over the whole year. The three categories are ‘Hard Worker’, ‘Most Improved’ and ‘High Achiever’. Each year group puts forward a pupil, in each category. The event is attended by parents, grandparents and other family members. We want to say a massive well done to the pupils who received their awards today.
Today, we also saw our current Head Girl and Head Boy, hand over the reins to their ‘replacements’. This year, Amie and Joseph have carried out their duties with great aplomb. We are certain that next year’s recipients will do equally well.

Race for life!

As the final part of our ‘School Sports Week’, we decided to hold Mill Hill’s very own ‘Race for Life’. We aimed to raise as much money as we could for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years!!

Everyone in our school took part and ran 1 mile around the school field. We put our Year 6’s with Reception, our Year 5’s with Year 1 and our 2’s, 3’s and 4’s ran together.

We managed to raise an incredible £1,205.75!!!!

Adventure, challenge and explore!

Our Year 5 pupils recently had a week long residential at Derwent Hill Outdoor Center. While there, the children got the chance to complete the John Muir Award. This is a nationally recognised, environmental award, which requires participants to ‘Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share’. The children engaged in a variety of tasks, including working with the Environment Agency, to plant over 100 trees, which will inhibit the erosion of a river bank. Well done to everyone who took part.

Visit to the Mayor’s Chamber

As part of our school’s work on democracy, some

of our School Council visited Sunderland Civic Centre

and met our city’s Mayor.

While they were there, they were given a tour of the

Mayor’s Chamber and got the chance to look at a

range of ‘official’ artifacts, linked with the city’s history.

 

They also got the chance to ask the Mayor about

his post and the duties he carries out, on behalf of the

people of Sunderland.
