Bullies do not come in standard shapes and sizes, and a policy based on stereotyped assumptions will fail. Luckily, here at Millhouse Primary we are in a small school environment where we get to know each child’s individual character in great depth and are therefore, in a good position to recognise and respond to incidents.
Here at Millhouse Primary School we want to ensure that our pupils are able to take advantage of all that we have to offer and to be the best that they can be and regular attendance at school is crucial to maintain uninterrupted progress and development. This policy has been created in line with the local authority attendance guidelines. Attendance policy (linked to LA policy). (updated March 2016)

Norvirus - 'Winter Vomiting Disease'
Noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause “stomach flu,” or vomiting and diarrhoea in people. Like all viral infections, noroviruses are not affected by treatment with antibiotics, and cannot grow outside of a person’s body. The amount of norovirus needed to become unwell with vomiting and diarrhoea is extremely small, making it very easy to transmit illness from person to person.

Sex and Relationship Policy
Aims and Objectives for Sex and Relationship Education
The aim of SRE is to provide children with age appropriate information, explore attitudes and values and develop skills in order to empower them to make positive decisions about their health related behaviour. This should take place with consideration of the qualities of relationships within families.
At Millhouse Primary School we strive for all our pupils to leave us with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. We believe PE and sport play a crucial role in the development of positive attitudes and behaviour for learning.
Teaching and Learning Policy
We here at Millhouse Primary School aim to provide children with the opportunities needed to develop towards their full potential – academically, emotionally and socially. Read our full policy on how we plan to achieve this here.
