Dear Parents and Children,
I would like to begin by welcoming you to the Cottesmore Millfield Academy website and hope that it gives you a glimpse into our school.
As the Headteacher of Cottesmore Millfield Academy I am proud of our enthusiastic pupils and our dedicated, hardworking staff team. Here at Cottesmore Millfield we understand the unique needs of our community. We always try to create a happy and secure school environment in which each individual child is welcomed and encouraged to develop to his or her potential. We believe strongly that provision for the emotional as well as academic well-being of our pupils has to be a main priority. We use our expertise to support induction and to ensure initial assessment procedures are robust so that there is as little disruption to the children’s learning as possible. As a school with high mobility we aim to meet the needs of all, however long or short their stay with us is.
The work and ethos of our school is underpinned by our six core values which are:
resilience, respect, responsibility, compassion, enjoyment and independence.
We aspire for every child to achieve during their time in our school.
As Cottesmore Millfield Academy is situated at Kendrew Barracks, we are well aware of the anxieties that mobility can have on our families and we work hard to ensure that our pupils settle in quickly. Every child who comes into our school is warmly welcomed and equally valued. Parents and carers are a vital part of our school and we actively encourage their involvement in the life of the school.
We believe in working in partnership with others to improve the outcomes for our children and we strive to ensure strong links between our school and the wider community in the United Kingdom and beyond.
We hope that you find this website useful and look forward to welcoming you and your family to Cottesmore Millfield Academy in the near future.
Mrs Rachel Thomas
