Welcome from the Head
I am extremely proud to be Head Teacher of Goldington Green Academy. I have a team of dedicated and caring staff who are committed to nurturing a strong relationship between staff, children and their families.
As a mother, I understand that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will have to make for your child. You want to know that your child will be happy at school but also to achieve their full potential in all areas across the curriculum. Read More

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
Find the help finder here: https://youngminds.org.uk/supporting-parents-helpfinder/
If your child is self isolating, your child’s class teacher will send homework via email. Your child will also be able to access remote teaching and learning via ‘The Oak National Academy’. Your child’s teacher will direct you to the videos which will support your child’s learning.

School Milk Arrangements
You may be aware that your child’s entitlement to free milk for children under the age of 5 under the UK Government’s Nursery Milk Scheme will stop from the September that your child moves into Year 1.
If you wish your child to continue to receive milk at school, you have the option to pay for their milk directly through our company supplier, Cool Milk. You will need to visit their website, www.coolmilk.com as soon as possible and select “Register your child for milk here”, then follow the on-screen instructions to register. If you have any queries regarding your child’s registration, you will need to contact Cool Milk directly at email@example.com or call them on 0844 854 2913.
If your child is over 5 and entitled to benefit based free school meals, school will fund the cost of their milk on your behalf. Please contact the school office if you think you may be eligible and would like your child to continue to receive milk.
