Millstead School strikes gold again!

Children, staff and governors at Millstead Primary School in Liverpool are celebrating as they continue to gain the highest possible levels of recognition for their outstanding provision for learners. The specialist primary school caters for children with severe learning difficulties aged 2-11 years.

The school is the first ever special school to be awarded the gold standard quality mark for the new initiative ‘Liverpool Counts’ which aims to; raise the standards of numeracy and mathematics through a fun approach to learning; challenge perception and attitudes towards numeracy and numbers and raise the profile of numeracy through activities and events that reflect the importance of maths in real life contexts. The report captured the variety of events and opportunities to develop mathematical concepts provided at Millstead School.

Alongside the academic success of the children at Millstead School, the holistic child is what really counts. The school gained its MOVE Quality Mark status recognising its approach to supporting children with physical difficulties in June 2014 and quickly became the first Centre of Excellence for MOVE in the North West and has seen huge successes in supporting children in developing their functional mobility.

Some of the children are now able to walk independently and parents are thrilled at the level of training and support offered to them to ensure that MOVE is a central part of their child’s daily life.

Headteacher Mrs Michelle Beard said: “The staff and governors of Millstead School have the highest aspirations for every single member of the school community. The school is committed to ensuring that pupils receive the highest quality education which will prepare them for life beyond Millstead.”
