I went on to visit Mill Field Primary School...

Stephen Watkins, the headteacher, and his colleagues are doing a great job at the new school which was formed from the amalgamation of Miles Hill and Potternewton Primary Schools last September. The atmosphere around the school is calm, purposeful and happy and the children are the greatest advert for what Stephen and the team have done. I was deeply impressed by one fantastic Year 6 student who told Stephen that if he hadn't been a great headteacher he would have been a great comedian! Relationships are one of the keys to great schools and the relationships are one of the great strengths at this wonderful little school.
