"This is a good school. Pupils are happy and achieve well as a result of good teaching and good care."

This is a good school. Pupils are happy and achieve well as a result of good teaching and good care. The school has a very good ethos, based firmly on its Christian values. These permeate the school and have positive effect on pupils' personal development. The headteacher and governors have a clear vision about the school's future and the school is developing strongly as a result. The pursuit of high standards is clearly seen in the way the school is improving the areas of its work. Good staff teamwork means that everyone is working together to the same high aspirations. The vast majority of parents are very happy with the school, finding staff approachable, committed and supportive.

The School - We will aim to:

  • provide a quality education in which each child is valued as an individual
  • provide a safe, stimulating and caring environment
  • keep you informed about your child's progress and general school matters
  • achieve high standards of behaviour through developing a sense of responsibility and building good relationships
  • inform you at an early stage of any concerns we may have and be available to discuss any concerns you may have
  • offer opportunities to get involved with class and school activities
  • be welcoming and approachable

The school has two very well appointed buildings, one for Key Stage 1 and one for Key Stage 2. There are two halls, two TV/music rooms, a library, a cookery room and a special needs withdrawal room. All classrooms have an interactive smartboard and two computers connected to the internet. There are separate playgrounds for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. In the summer term all children play on the large playing fields. There is an outside swimming pool which is heated and used in the summer term.


Admission Arrangements for Four-Year Olds

By law, children must start school at the beginning of the term after their 5th birthday. Milton school admits all pupils in the September of the academic year in which they turn five. The Local Authority coordinates the admissions procedure and determines the date when applications should be made to schools. Please contact the school office who will advise you of this date for the next academic year. Full details will be found in the LA booklet 'A Guide for Parents' which is available from the school office.

We would like you to feel happy and confident about your child starting at this school since it is an important time in a child's life. The children who are due to join the foundation stage classes in September are invited to spend an afternoon or morning with the class teacher in June or July. A meeting is held in June/July for all parents of children due to start school the following September.

Admissions Procedure September 2007

The school term starts on Tuesday September 4th

In order to ensure that each child is welcomed into school and given individual attention admissions will be staggered over the first week when all sessions will be from 9.00-12.00pm.

Week One

  • Tuesday: Summer born (birth dates 01/05/03-31/08/03) children only.
  • Wednesday: Summer and spring born (birth dates 01/01/03- 31/08/03) children only.

Spring and summer born children remain attending on a part time basis. (8.55-12.00)

Week Four

Parents of part time children will be invited to consultation sessions with teachers. If children have settled confidently they will be offered full time schooling. There will be no pressure for any child to start full time until they are ready.


We encourage all parents to support the uniform policy, particularly by buying sweatshirts with the school logo. These, together with polo shirts with logo, T-shirts and P.E. shorts are all available from the MSA. The MSA sell uniform in the reception area after school on the first Tuesday of each month. Alternatively, forms can be returned to the school office and the MSA will fill the orders.

Children should wear flat-heeled black shoes, not trainers.

School Uniform Order Form

Boys' Uniform

Grey trousers, white polo shirt, navy sweatshirt, grey socks and black shoes.

Girls' Uniform

Grey trousers or grey skirt, navy sweatshirt and white polo shirt. Black shoes. Optional summer dress - small white and blue squared check and optional flat-heeled sandals.


Plimsolls, elasticated fronts, if possible, are required for outdoor P.E. in K.S.1. K.S.2. children wear trainers for outdoor P.E. Pupils require a named shoe bag for their shorts and T-shirt/polo shirt. The MSA sells PE kit. Football boots are not necessary.


For swimming each pupil needs a swimming costume, towel and waterproof bag. A bathing hat should be provided for pupils having long hair. Plasters should not be worn in the pool. Children with verrucas are encouraged to wear rubber socks. Children should not wear stud earrings for swimming or P.E.

Name Tags

We are aware that children's clothing is expensive so it is essential that all articles of clothing are clearly marked with the child's name to allow lost articles to be returned to their rightful owners. Lost property is put in a large brown container in the hallway by the K.S.2. hall.


The curriculum is good. It is planned carefully to provide a broad, balanced and rich programme of activities." (Ofsted 2006)

The Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage curriculum begins when children reach the age of three. Most of the children who attended Milton School have had some form of pre-school experience since soon after their third birthday. Children entering the school are still considered to be in the Foundation Stage. During the first year, the children focus on the Early Learning Goals and are given opportunities to develop in six areas of learning. These are identified as personal, social and emotional development, language and literacy development, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development and creative development. Throughout the year, there will be a balance between the six areas. Emphasis is placed on personal, social and emotional development during the first part of the academic year.

The Foundation Stage prepares children for learning in Key Stage 1 and is consistent with the National Curriculum.

The National Curriculum

At Milton we aim to make quality the essential part of every child's education. The children follow the National Curriculum, which includes English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Art, Music, Design and Technology, Information Communication Technology, Physical Education, and Religious Education. Some work may involve the linking together of a number of subjects within a single topic or theme, which will thus be cross- curricular in nature. National Curriculum attainment targets and programmes of study are mapped into topics and covered at an appropriate level for each child. The school also adds additional elements to the National Curriculum such as Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E.) and Citizenship. We are also presently offering K.S.2. pupils French, which is provided by a teacher from Impington Village College

Key Stage 1 (KS1) refers to children aged 5-7 years, Key Stage 2 (KS2) to pupils aged 7-11 years.
