Admission arrangements

The Governors will admit up to 120 children in each year group

Following the admission of children with a statement of Special Educational Needs/EHC Plan which names the school as appropriate provision, the following criteria will be used.

  1. Where a child is in Public Care or previously in Public Care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. Where a child, living on the Ise Lodge Estate, already attends the linked infant school or has a brother or sister attending either Millbrook Junior School or the linked Infant School, who will still be in attendance on 1st September of year of admission.
  3. Where a child not living on the Ise Lodge Estate already attends the linked infant school or has a brother or sister attending either Millbrook Junior School or the linked infant school, who will still be in attendance on the 1st September on the year of admission.
  4. Where a child lives on the Ise Lodge Estate.
  5. The proximity of the child's home, with those living nearer to the school’s front door, 'as the crow flies', being accorded the higher priority.

If the admission number is exceeded within any of categories 1-4, applications will be prioritised on the proximity to the school ‘as the crow files’. A map indicating the boundaries of the Ise Lodge Estate is available in the school office.

Values and Ethos

Our Ethos

At Millbrook Junior School we are very proud of the children in our school. We recognise that all children have different experiences and come from many different starting points in life but we encourage every child to strive to be the very best that they can be. Our mission statement, created by the children is;

Dream, Believe, Aspire, Achieve

and we aim to ensure this runs through the heart of everything we do.

Our Values

Although we want every child to achieve academically it is also important to us that all children achieve in terms of their personal development. We take every opportunity to encourage children to value independence, respect and equality. We want our children to be courageous and determined in their work and not be afraid to push themselves or make mistakes, as these are the skills that will enable them to be successful in whatever they chose to do in their future lives.
