We believe that our care for the boys and girls at Milbourne Lodge is second to none. We strive first and foremost for a happy and purposeful environment where children are encouraged to get involved in school life so that they can discover their own interests and passions.

There is a carefully structured pastoral system in place revolving around the pupil’s Form Tutor who is always the first port of call at school. The Form Tutors are overseen by our Pastoral Deputy Head, who takes overall responsibility for ensuring that every child’s pastoral needs are met. Our Pastoral Deputy Head is also the Designated Safeguarding Lead for the whole school.

We encourage a real team spirit at Milbourne so that each and every individual feels valued and respected. There is a strong community feel to the school which is promoted by regular Assemblies, School Council and involvement in House and Charity activities. Weekly Form Tutor meetings cover moral, social and citizenship issues appropriate to age.

Our PSHEE curriculum helps to underpin the core values of the school. We work hard to develop children’s inter-personal skills and there is a strong emphasis placed on good manners and consideration for others.

Our latest Inspection Report acknowledged the quality of care for our children’s well-being, and highlighted that ‘’pupils unanimously say that they are happy at the school and value the support they receive from their teachers” and that “the system of pastoral care is highly effective”.
