Mrs D Mills

Message from Mrs Mills


My name is Mrs Mills and I am very excited to have been appointed as the new Head Teacher at Horwich Parish Church of England Primary School.

This is my second headship. I was previously the Headteacher at Kingsfold Primary School in Penwortham.

I have been made to feel very welcome at Horwich Parish, thank you!

Horwich Parish is a lovely school with many fabulous things happening. I intend to work hard to continue with all the positives things and to introduce over time ideas that can make our school even better. I feel very honoured to be joining a team of hardworking children, staff and governors.

A successful school is one that gives everyone a voice and works in partnership with parents and the community to achieve a vision for excellence.
I intend to ensure Horwich Parish is a safe, happy, caring and inclusive school where children, staff, parents and visitors feel welcomed, valued and are encouraged to succeed. That everyone is treated with respect, enjoys learning and we actively work together to be the best they we can be.

As a church school God is central in everything we will do. The children will be taught to live by the Christian values and for these values to permeate in every part of their lives.

I am confident that together we are going to achieve great things and put Horwich Parish  C of E Primary School on the map as a beacon of light for excellence.

I look forward to working with you!

Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset

Over the past few weeks our school have been deciding how to introduce our ‘Growth Mindset’ badges to children in each class. Each week the school councillors in collaboration with the class teacher will decide if any children have demonstrated growth mindset skills. The badges are:

  • I love to learn
  • I am resilient
  • I am a risk taker
  • Effort makes my brain grow
  • I love a challenge
    • The children will wear the badges proudly all week in school.
