Parent Handbook

Dear Parents,

The children, staff and Governors would like to welcome you to Mildmay Infant and Nursery School with enhanced provision for hearing impaired pupils. As our school’s Vision & Aspirations reflect; we are an inclusive school where all members of our community are valued and respected. Our most recent Ofsted inspection graded all areas of our school as outstanding and we were pleased that our wellbeing and care of our pupils was recognised as well as our academic success.

‘Pupils are provided with excellent learning opportunities that support both their academic and personal progress exceptionally well.’ (Ofsted 2014)

At Mildmay Infant & Nursery School we believe in providing a secure and stimulating environment where all children can enjoy learning and succeed. Examples of our exciting, creative and thematic curriculum can be found on our school website: We have maintained the Healthy Schools Award, working towards enhanced status and we are delighted to also hold the Arts Mark at Gold Level. We have just achieved the UNICEF Rights and Respecting School Recognition of Commitment as their values reflect our own at Mildmay.

The safety and welfare of children in our care is paramount. In line with local authority procedure all helpers in school are required to have a DBS check to ensure they are suitable to work with children. We value parental involvement and have an open door policy. In the mornings parents are welcomed into classes to help their children settle before registration and teachers are available after school by appointment. We welcome parents into school to help with reading, classroom activities and school trips. We have a successful parent led fundraising committee called the ‘Friends of Mildmay’ and I run a Parent Forum where members talk about the latest initiatives in school and raise ideas that will benefit the children. We have parent representatives on our Governing Body who work at a strategic level. All parental involvement in our school community is valued. The children enjoy parents coming to see our Classroom Snapshots and Class Assemblies.

We have very good liaison with many of our feeder playgroups and we work very closely with Mildmay Junior School. This is particularly important to ensure a smooth transition when starting school and from Year 2 to Year 3.

I celebrate the supportive relationship we have between home and school here at Mildmay Infant & Nursery school and I always try to make myself available to children or parents who have any concerns. I hope you enjoy reading about our fantastic school.

Yours sincerely
Mrs Maxine Bradford BA(Ed) Hons NPQH
Head Teacher
