Great News.
We are delighted to inform you that Sport England has awarded Cheshire Academies Trust a Sports Grant for
a Multi Use Games Area. This offer replaces the original offer of 02 June 2014 to Mill View Primary School.
The Award will be used to provide a 12m x 7m games space with safety flooring and floor markings; a
meander trail on our playground and activity surfacing in the Reception outdoor area.
We anticipate the work will be completed by 31 August 2015 and the school will be dedicating the MUGA to
the memory of Danny Jones. Danny, father of Holly in Year 6, and a former football coach for Chester
FC Academy died of a brain tumour in March. Dannys mother Debbie was a governor at Mill View and we are
delighted that Debbie and Tara, Dannys wife, have given us permission to dedicate the MUGA to the memory
of Danny. There will be an official opening of the MUGA in the new academic year.

Parent Governor
As you are aware via previous communication Mrs Joanne Wraiges four year
office will commence at the next full governing body on 01 July 2015 as
governor responsible for Safeguarding. The Safeguarding cards have been
printed and a copy will be coming home next week. The card includes
contact numbers for Domestic Abuse, Childline and NSPCC. There is an
electronic copy uploaded on the school website and hard copies in the school
entrance as usual.
Sports Day and National Sports Week (week commencing Monday 22 June)
Mrs Burt-Williams and Miss Pemberton are busy planning exciting sporting

Hair Auction
One of our parents, Tracy Kilner, is donating
her hair to The Little Princess Trust who make
wigs for children suffering with hair loss. A hairdresser will be cutting Tracys
hair off on Friday 19 June in school.
How can you help? Tracy is asking asking families to donate money on her
just giving page www.justgiving.com/tracykilner. She is raising money
for cancer research by donating her hair and also running in Race for Life.
This is her story
I'm joining Cancer Research UK's Race for Life this year. Please join the fight by digging deep and sponsoring
me - it's quick, easy and totally secure.
People tend to recognise me or remember me because of my hair. I have lots! My Nanan Elizabeth, my aunty
Pam and my dear friend Sussy all lost their hair when having treatment. How often we joke about bad hair
days and do not realise how important it is to us until we lose it, and although it is nothing , it makes us
look/feel rubbish and unattractive and on top of how bad we feel some days and smiling when it hurts.. we
still (deep down) want to look pretty and my hair is very much what I am, so I am going to auction plats of
my hair, God willing to good bidders and raise money while losing my feminine self for love.
Events like this are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and
treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create an army that cancer can't ignore. By sponsoring
me, we will beat cancer sooner.

Special Educational Needs Change Team Update by Mrs Noble

The SEN Change Team met on 05 June to review the work done over the last eighteen months towards
implementing the new SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) code of practice. There is much to
celebrate: Mill View has a new school policy; an SEN report on the Cheshire West and Chester Local Offer
and a new system of Plan, Do, Review to support childrens progress. Although these are achievements in
themselves, of greater importance is the raising of inclusive practices across the school. This means that all
childrens learning and wellbeing is supported by a raft of strategies, teacher approaches, changes to the
classroom environment and ways of thinking.
Some parents will receive a questionnaire over the next few weeks asking for their views on how well the
school caters for children with special needs and inviting suggestions as to how we might improve further.
We would be very grateful if you could take the time to complete this as we really do value your opinions.
The SEN Change Team will continue to meet, albeit less frequently, and parents will be informed as to
when this will happen. If you would like to join us, we would be more than happy to see you at our next
meeting. Please email admin@millview.cheshire.sch.uk or telephone the school office if you would like to
join the next meeting.
We would like to thank those parents who have contributed so positively to the SEN Change Team as this
has been an excellent opportunity for parents and the school to work together and improve outcomes for
all our pupils.
