Welcome Back! Milefield Primary School Newsletter September 2021

A warm welcome back to pupils, families and staff.

I am really looking forward to the year ahead and know that it will be filled with achievement and success. I am pleased to inform you that the first day of the academic year has been extremely successful. Pupils have returned ready to learn and with the positive attitudes and behaviour to succeed. Learning has been in full swing today and pupils are eagerly embracing the opportunities and challenges this brings. I am very proud of our school and pupils and would like to thank all parents for your ongoing support and involvement. I am available most mornings on the school playground so please do come and speak to me!
