Mill Dam School is a 1 form entry school serving an area of Pontefract, West Yorkshire. The percentage of disadvantaged children is close to the national average.

A strength of the school is our inclusivity. We have a high number of pupils with complex needs. Many of which are met through EHCP provision. We are proud of our support programmes such as individual and group interventions, nurture provisions and our strengthening relationship with external support services to meet the needs of all of our children.

We are a fantastic school which admits children from age 3 to 11. Children can attend our nursery provision for either 15 or 30 hours per week where they will enjoy playing and learning in our self-contained nursery building with an excellent outdoor learning space. Full time children in our reception class also use this fabulous resource.

Our site is large with two new extensions and space for play and learning within our forest schools area, field and playgrounds. We have grown to become single form entry across school.

We have high expectations for all of our children and staff. This is a period of rapid evolution and improvement for Mill Dam and we would love to welcome you to join our team.
