Mill Green School is...
A co-educational day special school/college for learners aged 14 - 19. The school was lucky enough to be the first new school build of the ‘Priority School Building Project’ (PSBP) and was completed September 2014.
Mill Green is located in Parr within St. Helens and serves a large geographical area. It is one of two schools catering for this type of special need within the local authority. Almost all of the learners arrive and leave on buses and taxis. Mill Green provides out of hours opportunities for learners within school and the local community. We have wide ranging community links. We bring parents, carers and our community together whenever possible through open days, presentations and social gatherings with the learners.
Mill Green's uniqueness is our commitment to encourage, celebrate and share every step as a success. (September 2013)
This is supported by our overriding aim to offer equality of opportunity through a personalised curriculum both within our local and wider community. Mill Green is not a faith school but we enjoy strong links with our local church.
Mill Green is a Specialist Arts College, providing considerable opportunities for all learners with a positive impact on learner progress including narrowing gaps in other curriculum areas.
14-19 provision is regularly reviewed and enhanced by significant curriculum developments and strengthened key stage 4 transition programmes. A progressive Foundation Learning Programme enhances outstanding provision. Appropriate accreditation and qualifications for all current learners meets individual needs and interests and offers a wide range of opportunities within our accreditation framework.
As an active community partner, we continue to maintain and develop strong links with the local and wider community. Community links are strengthened by addressing needs through specialism resources.
Environmental education is embedded within the school and college curriculum and is enriched through high quality land based opportunities such as horticulture and conservation.
We provide inclusion opportunities for individual and groups of learners through developing successful partnerships with mainstream providers. The school plays an active role with local schools, promoting friendship, advocacy and mentoring within the local community, enhancing well being.
We provide a progressive and exciting curriculum, which is personalised to meet the needs of all learners currently focussed on making the most of our learning opportunities both within school and local, wider community. Specialist teaching and support in Art and Design, Music, Design Technology and PE provision is further enhanced through enrichment weeks,
We provide high quality additional support for learners with ASD, PMLD, and more able learners through specialist support classes where teams of staff plan and deliver individualised programmes in collaboration with class based teams.
Our outstanding ASD provision is enhanced through high quality CPD and strategic leadership, as recognised by the National Autistic Society (NAS April 2016)
