Good Things Grow Here


At Mill View we firmly believe in the transformative power of literacy. Reading, writing, and spoken language are not just fundamental skills; they are gateways to a world of opportunity, understanding, and self-expression.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), a renowned research body in the field of education, underscores the significance of these skills. EEF research reveals that literacy has a profound impact on a child's academic journey and future success. Effective literacy skills lay the groundwork for improved learning across all subjects, fostering critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving abilities.

Reading opens doors to new worlds, develops the imagination and builds empathy. It allows children to explore far-off places, diverse cultures, different time periods and different perspectives, all from the comfort of their classroom or home. Writing empowers students to express their thoughts, share their stories, and articulate their ideas clearly and confidently.

Proficiency in spoken language is crucial. It enables effective communication, enhances interpersonal skills, and is essential for collaboration. EEF research highlights the importance of spoken language in underpinning the development of reading and writing. Conversational skills not only aid in academic achievement but also play a critical role in social-emotional learning.

At Mill View, we are committed to nurturing these vital skills through a rich and varied curriculum. We believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves the opportunity to become a confident reader, an articulate writer, and an effective communicator. Through dedicated teaching, inclusive practices, and by fostering a love for literacy, we strive to equip our students with the tools they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.

As we journey with our children towards excellence in literacy, our hope is that every child will be empowered to reach their full potential.
