Welcome to

St Michael’s Church of England
Junior School

Maidstone Kent

Ours is a smallish school, built in Queen Victoria’s reign. It stands in a residential part of the town, near to the River Medway.

We have around 180 children, in six classes, a smallish playground, a dragon (play area), but NO school field – so all our football matches are away games!

We have some great people here … have a browse around and see for yourself.


The children will be:

  • Recognised as individuals of equal worth, with thoughts, views and values of their own
  • Nurtured and cared for
  • Offered a high quality education
  • Expected to be fair, tolerant and respectful
  • Encouraged to do their best
  • Ensured a trouble-free transition between key stages
  • Expected to conform to the school’s code of conduct
  • Given responsibilities appropriate to their age (School Council/Monitors)

The Staff will:

  • Recognise the value of every member of the school community
  • Respect one another’s beliefs, ideals and rights
  • Promote positive relationships within the school
  • Be encouraged to develop their professional skills
  • Endeavour to enjoy a healthy life/work balance
  • Receive adequate resources to carry out their work
  • Have high expectations of children
  • Prepare children for life – develop self esteem, confidence and maturity
  • Take into account the educational needs of each child
  • Work together with parents and carers in the best interests of the child 

The School will offer stakeholders:

·        An open door for questions, enquiries and concerns

·        An opportunity to support the School through the PTA

·        Regular newsletters and invitations to School events

Brief History

     St. Michael's is a Victorian town school, built over 100 years ago and is located in an area of mainly Victorian and Edwardian houses just beyond Maidstone West railway station.  The school site is larger than it first appears and our buildings provide a wide range of facilities and we are constantly working to ensure that their decoration and maintenance is to the highest standards.   Many visitors comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere that greets them when they arrive. As a Church of England Controlled school, St. Michael's is proud of its close links with the local community.  'Church of England' Controlled means that the land upon which the school is built belongs to the church, while the Local Education Authority is responsible for the buildings and all day to day running, including staff and resources.  Close connections to the founder church are valued and maintained and four governors are appointed by the church.  These are the 'Foundation Governors', one of whom is always the Parish Priest.  

     Our basic aim is to promote the all round development of each child in our care: 

 1.  Intellectually

    While an individual child's abilities may vary widely, they will be encouraged to  achieve their  best in terms of literacy, numeracy and knowledge of the world in which they live.  We want to inspire pupils to broaden their knowledge by their own efforts and to build and maintain their enthusiasm for learning.

 2.   Spiritually

    We want our children to feel comfortable about themselves, confident in their abilities and the knowledge that they each have a worthwhile contribution to make to the community.  We maintain strong links with our parish church, St. Michael and All Angels, and while our daily worship is Christian, we respect the beliefs of those of different faiths who attend our school and promote respect for each other.

 3.   Emotionally

    We believe that for successful learning to take place, children's emotional needs must be met.  Mutual care and understanding is a key factor for all at St. Michael's

 4.   Morally

    Our school rules are simple and applied consistently.  Care and honesty are praised, misdemeanours, bullying and deceit are not tolerated.

5.   Socially

    We are proud of the fact that St. Michael's is a happy school, where children feel secure and confident within a warm atmosphere. There are opportunities to mix and learn after school, through various clubs and social occasions.


    We seek to develop a positive attitude to health and fitness in each child.  We are able to carry out most P.E. activities on the premises, but use local facilities for swimming, athletics, football etc.


School uniform should be practical and neat. All of St. Michael’s uniform is available locally at a reasonable cost.
