10th November 2020

In Year 6, the children have been learning all about Remembrance Day and the importance of the poppies. They have made these poppy wreaths as a symbol of remembrance for the First World War.


6th November 2020

Here are some pictures of the children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 who did some fantastic homework in the October half term. As you can see some children still had their homework pieces in school so were able to show them for the photo.


3rd November 2020

Yesterday, year 1 started their new topic, What’s in the box?

A mysterious box was delivered to our classroom and the children predicted what it could be. Some predicted slides, a bouncy castles and a tarantula! … it was a toy box!

Yesterday afternoon, Mrs Mills visited our class today to show year 1 her favourite toy. Meet William, Mrs Mills’ teddy bear who she has had for 42 years! The children asked lots of questions and were excited to learn about William. They found out that Mrs Mills’ Grandad brought this for her when she was the same age as them when he was on holiday in Blackpool! For those of you that can remember it was from the Woolworths store! Mrs Mills’ Grandad also built engines for the Spitfire  in World War II. As you can see William is a very treasured bear.


22nd October 2020

Dear Parents/Carers, The Mill Hill staff would like to wish you all a lovely and safe half term break. The children have had a wonderful day today and we look forward to seeing them on Monday 2nd November. Also, please see attached letter from the Principal that the children took home with them tonight.

Take care

Year 6 enjoyed the start of their Viking topic, making Viking longboats. The thought and creativity that went into these was amazing and they all look great! I’m sure the Vikings will have travelled across the sea successfully on these boats. Liam also went above and beyond and made a fantastic long boat at home as part of his homework. Well done Liam and all of Year 6!


28th September 2020

Last week, Year 6 had the chance to dissect lambs’ hearts as part of their Science topic ‘Animals Including Humans’. The children thoroughly enjoyed this experience and learnt a lot about what the heart looks like and the features of a heart. We are very proud of them all for their mature attitude to this exciting practical activity.

11th September 2020

Year 4 launched their Roman topic with a carousel of exciting activities including Roman Bread making, an Archaeological Dig and creating a Laurel Wreath crown. We all had a fabulous morning of learning!

A T-Rex! We went outside to investigate and this is what we found – a dinosaur nest!!
We are so excited to start our dinosaur topic

Dear Parents/Carers. Here is a poem for our year 6 children. We will miss you and  wish all the very best for the future. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

Year 6 Leavers Poem

15th July 2020

Dear Parent/Carers and Children. For your information, we will be fully staffed next year but, we would like to let you know about two members of staff that are sadly leaving us at the end of this week.

Miss Tabbinor joined the Academy last September to cover Mrs Bagely’s maternity leave in RB. Miss Tabbinor has done an amazing job this year and is a really valued member of staff. She really has encouraged and supported the children in RB to excel and to be ready for year 1. She has loved being part of the Mill Hill community with staff, parents/carers and children. We wish her well for her new job in a first school in Biddulph. Good Luck Miss Tabbinor!

Mrs Farnell joined the Academy 5 years ago teaching in year 2. More recently she has led the nursery team whilst Mrs Donnelly has been on Maternity leave. Mrs Farnell is an outstanding teacher who has always gone above and beyond for the children – she is also a lovely lady, who is thought of so highly by her colleagues. Although Mrs Farnell only spent a short time in nursery her impact has been noticeable and we all thank her for encouraging and supporting our youngest children. Mrs Farnell leaves us to set up a new life with her family in Wales. She will be very much missed but, we are also very happy that her plans have now come to fruition. Good luck Mrs Farnell and happy travels!

Kind Regards

Due to the current situation, we will be doing this in the first two weeks of September. If your child would like to apply for any of these roles, they may want to think about their application over the next couple of months.

To apply they will need to complete the attached application form and bring this with them when we reopen on Wednesday 2nd September. If successful your child will also have to deliver a 10 minute presentation which reflects why they want the role and what they have to offer.

Dear Parents/Carers.

You may be aware that the school uniform shop will be open from Tuesday 16th June. At present, the Government has issued no guidelines on how schools will reopen in September. For this reason and for the financial pressures that many of you may have been under during this time, we will continue to operate a non-school uniform policy from September. So, there is no need to purchase a new school uniform for the September start. We will hopefully relaunch our school uniform in the near future but, will of course give parent/carers plenty of time to purchase it.

Take care

The Mill Hill team.


10th June 2020

Wow, please take a look at the beautiful and creative clay sculptures and masks the children have made.


10th June 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

From the 1st of June our schools started to reopen to pupils in specific year groups identified by the DfE, in addition to continuing to provide places for children of key workers. 

To date the DfE and our Academies have worked together to provide a food parcel service alongside the voucher scheme for children eligible for free school meals.  Due to the reopening, the DfE have now changed the way that the voucher scheme will work to reflect pupil attendance at school.  Voucher amounts will now be based on how many days your child has attended school.  Where meals are taken in school the vouchers provided will be reduced to reflect this.

For example if your child is in school for 5 days a week, they will no longer be eligible for a voucher as food will be provided on site. If your child is on a phased return and attends school 2 days a week, a voucher will be provided for the additional 3 days.

 To allow us to correctly adjust the vouchers to reflect the meals provided in school we will be issuing vouchers on a Friday after the school week has come to a close.

 If you have any questions or concerns about these changes please contact the school office.

 Thank you and take care

Dear Parents/Carers. We have an update on the free school meals voucher scheme. There have been issues with the Government portal which has resulted in many of you not receiving the vouchers. Due to this, the Trust’s email address has been inundated with emails from four schools. They have found it very difficult to get back to you all and they send their apologies. They are working hard to resolve the issues and all being well this will be sorted for next week. Whilst this issue is out of our hands, we have ensured that those eligible for free school meals have received food parcels this week. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
Take care. The Mill Hill team.

Whilst you are waiting to get your vouchers you will receive a food parcel this week.

It does seem to be the case that the vouchers have now been sent to all parents/carers that we have an email address for. It is possible that email vouchers have gone to spam / junk folders or that parents/carers are looking for an email to come from the Academy which isn’t the case.

We would encourage parents/carers to look very carefully in their email folder and to read the subjects of those emails. If any parents/carers still cannot find their vouchers please ring the Academy tomorrow between 8am and 3pm.

  • We hope that you are well. The City Learning Trust has been liaising with a company regarding providing lunches for those children who are eligible for free school meals. I am pleased to tell you that the company will be delivering them to your door next week. All being well this will be on Monday. Parent Mail is currently working exceptionally slow at the moment due to the amount of messages that are being sent nationally. We will send this message by Parent Mail but, if you do have friends that you could share this with, we would be really grateful. Stay safe and look after each other. From the Mill Hill Team X

Please show your support for our fantastic NHS workers tonight at 8pm.

  • Please can all parents who have not yet signed up to Dojo check your emails during today (it may go to your junk mail, so please check there as well) and follow the link and sign up. This will enable you to contact your class teacher for support and also see what work has been set for you.  Please do not forget to look on the Mill Hill Primary Academy website daily on and go to the learning tab/homework and look for your child/ren class for daily homework and also check out the useful website for children.
  • To spread hope during this unprecedented time we would like children to produce a rainbow to place in your windows. Please then send a photograph to school to keep us all smiling. We will share some of your lovely work.
  • Be aware of scam emails…..We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.  We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.PLEASE NOTE: The email that you recieved referring to free school meals last week was from the City Learning Trust and was legitimate.

Dear Parent/Carer,

It is with a very heavy heart that we have had to close the Academy today. Staff have been very emotional and we will really miss not seeing our children over this period.  All Parents/Carers that are key workers have been contacted about provision. Further details will be emailed to you. We are here to support our essential key workers, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need us.  Please encourage your children to keep in touch with their teachers via Dojo.  In addition, please visit the Academy website (learning/homework tab) for learning resources that will be updated daily.From all the Mill Hill staff, please follow the Government advice. Take care of yourselves, each other and our community. Thank you for your ongoing support.  The Mill Hill Primary Academy Team x
