Working Together, Aiming High, Shining Brightly
Let your light shine before others - Matthew 5:16


On behalf of the children, staff and governors I’d like to welcome you to Milton Ernest C of E Primary School. Milton Ernest C of E Primary School is a village school at the heart of a rural community and is part of a federation with Eileen Wade Primary School in Upper Dean. We believe in collaboration and teamwork to ensure the highest aspirations and the very best outcomes for all children across the Federation.

As a Church of England school, faith is central to our school's ways of learning and living. Worship and reflection form a central part of our school life. At Milton Ernest we pride ourselves on nurturing all of our pupils through our school Christian values: truth, patience, respect, peace and love. These values underpin all that we do, ensuring high quality relationships and positive attitudes to learning.The life skill of team work is embedded in everything that happens. The future of the school is shaped by children, parents, Governors and the wider community. We hold an open door policy which allows everybody to contribute; we believe in working in partnership with you to ensure the best for all our children.

Our Vision

 Our federation values every individual enabling them to flourish, aim high and reach their full potential with a lifelong love of learning that will prepare them for their future.

Through their experience with us, they will foster a resilient attitude towards challenge and demonstrate a desire to learn, the motivation to improve and aspiration to be a positive contributor to our community and global village.

We want our school and church to be beacons that shine far and wide, lighting up our region with the light of Jesus through our work, rest and play. By learning Christian Values, by listening to the teachings of Jesus and by following the examples of Jesus we say to every member of our Community ‘Let your Light Shine’
