Millfield Pre-Prep have been recognised for the number of physical activities on offer for its pupils.

Health and wellbeing of pupils is paramount at Millfield Pre-Prep, which caters for children from ages 2 in its Pre-School to Year 2, with all the children participating in sport, activities or clubs every day.

They received the recognition after undertaking a physical activity audit developed by the EYFS Physical Activity group at SASP (Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership) and the Early Years Team at Somerset County Council and Public Health.

At Millfield Pre-Prep, Early Years education is highly valued and the school prides itself on supporting the vital developments that occur in the first five years of a child’s life.

There is a holistic approach, where every element of the children’s abilities to learn are embraced, which builds a solid foundation for pupils to flourish.

Mike Jory, Head of Millfield Pre-Prep, was delighted with the award and commended his staff for their efforts. “It is always great to receive an award like this because it is a reminder that as a school, we are doing the right thing. The health and wellbeing of our children is a priority here and so we are glad that this has been recognised!”

He added, “the team we have at Millfield Pre-Prep is an amazing one. The staff are devoted to creating an environment for the children where they can thrive, and we see the benefits daily.”
