Homework - have your say (added 12/10/17 by Mrs James)
At parents' night this evening you will see a board outside the hall. Can you please tick if you are team homework or team no homework. We recognise the importance of family time and the pursuits of hobbies/personal interests and know that many families often find time taken up with clubs etc can have an impact on homework being completed. We would like to gather your views on what you think about homework - should we stay the same (homework given on a Monday and returned by Friday) or should we move to no homework except reading (with the option of additional work for any individual requiring support)? There are comment slips which can also be filled out with additional thoughts/views.

Staffing (added 12/9/17 by Mrs James)
We are delighted to welcome Mrs Moffat to the Milton team as our new school support assistant funded with our PEF allocation this session. This allows us to have extra support in attempting to close the attainment gap in Literacy and Numeracy and also gives another adult presence in the playground and cafe during break and lunchtimes. Welcome, Mrs Moffat!
