Good Things Grow Here

Personal Development at Mill View

Personal development is at the heart of all we do at Mill View, nurturing confident, resilient and socially responsible individuals and laying the foundation for their lifelong growth and thriving in an ever-changing world.  Fundamental aspects of this include;


Building Self-Esteem and Confidence

The primary years are the time when children begin to form their self-concept. Through positive reinforcement, constructive feedback, and encouragement, we help children build self-esteem and confidence in our school. This, in turn, helps them approach challenges positively.


Social Skills

Developing social skills is a key aspect of personal growth. Mill View  provides an ideal environment for children to interact with peers, learn teamwork, and practice effective communication. These skills are essential for building relationships, resolving conflicts, and working collaboratively in the future.


Emotional Intelligence

The primary years are an opportune time to introduce children to emotional intelligence. By teaching children to recognise and manage their emotions, we help them to develop empathy, improve interpersonal relationships, and make sound decisions based on emotional awareness.


Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

We foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Encouraging children to ask questions, explore new ideas, and solve problems independently or in groups enhances their ability to navigate real-life challenges.



At Mill View, children learn the value of perseverance and resilience when they encounter obstacles or challenges. We encourage them to view setbacks as opportunities for growth, mistakes as opportunities to learn and help them to develop a mindset that will serve them well in all areas of their lives as they grow.


Goal Setting and Motivation

We teach our children about setting goals and working toward them. This includes both academic and personal goals, fostering a sense of motivation and a desire to achieve their aspirations.


Values Education

We teach values such as respect, responsibility, honesty, and kindness, which are essential in fostering a strong sense of morality and ethics. 


Cultural Awareness and Diversity

Our society is diverse, and it is essential for our children to develop cultural awareness and an appreciation for diversity from an early age. We actively promote tolerance, open-mindedness and the strength of character to challenge discrimination as we prepare children to be respectful global citizens.


Healthy Lifestyle Choices

We teach our children about nutrition, exercise, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle which sets the foundation for a lifetime of good health habits.


Preparation for Future Learning

We prepare our children for future learning and success through their educational journey and beyond. The skills and attitudes developed during their primary years contribute significantly to their ability to adapt, learn, and thrive in a rapidly changing world.
