Makaton in Early Years

We are proud to share our Makaton signing with you! We are using Makaton in Early Years on a regular basis to support the clear spoken language that we model to the children. Makaton is amazing and the children all enjoy joining in with signs to support their words. We focus on a signed Word of the Week and also practice a song with Makaton signing.


Our curriculum is bespoke to us and is driven by the fact that we want children to leave the Mill secure in their own identity; familiar with their own community and sense of family; skilled in making connections with friends and the wider world.
Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. We continuously reflect on the best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
Our regular newsletters are one of many ways that we celebrate their amazing successes, hard work and adventures. We always love to share how 'Forever Proud' we are of the children in The Mill community.
