Welcome to Milverton Community Primary School
Our school is set in extensive grounds on the edge of the attractive village of Milverton. Our aim is to help everyone associated with Milverton School to feel part of a lively, caring and active learning community. We believe that education is a partnership between parents, children and staff. Education should be fun. Children, like the rest of us, learn so much better when they are enjoying what they are doing.
Our beautiful school grounds, full of mature trees and a variety of natural habitats, encourages us to be innovative in utilising this space as a valuable teaching and learning resource and we aim to get the children outside whenever it is practical. This also inspires an environmental awareness in our pupils and has galvanised a firm environmental commitment in us all. The school was first recognised as an Eco School in 2006 and we are very proud to be holders of our 6th Green Flag Award.
The school has an excellent academic record and there is a long history of high expectations and achievements underlying our ethos. The school was recently named in The Sunday Times Top 200 Primary Schools in England. We encourage every child to recognise their potential and develop their individual talents. We retain our commitment to 'hands on' learning and the importance of creative subjects whilst ensuring that our children have a thorough grounding in the basic skills they will need to be successful in the next stage of their education. We regard 'out of hours learning' as part of our services to our children and families. We run sports clubs every evening after school alongside our Toasties After School Club, which includes creative as well as leisure activities.
