Welcome to St. Michael’s School. Our website gives you information and a flavour of our school which we hope you will find useful. The pupils, staff governors and parents are very proud of our happy and caring village school.
In our recent Ofsted Report the Inspectors said: “The pupils are polite, well behaved and articulate and make an outstanding contribution to the community… This is a happy school where pupils enjoy their education.”
Our recent Ofsted inspection has confirmed that we know what we need to do to improve our school, enabling us to achieve our aims.
The school promotes strong links with parents through regular formal meetings, encouraging them to come and support work in school and has an open door policy for parents to discuss any concerns.
We are a church school, so our links with the church are very strong. Weekly collective Worship is conducted by a member of the church team. We regularly celebrate festivals and important days at our village church of St Michael’s. Church members are actively involved in areas of the curriculum.
I was very proud that the OFSTED inspectors commented on how well the pupils in school support and look after each other, particularly those new to the school, and how enthusiastically they all talk about their school. Here are some quotes from the children,
“There is always someone to help you.”
“Everyone wants to know you and be your friend”
Our curriculum enrichment has been judged as excellent-all the pupils in the school are learning French, have specialist PE lessons and we have a specialist music teacher, who teaches all of the classes as well as offering piano lessons. Other instrument tuition is also offered.
When making the very important decision of where to send your child to school, I believe visiting schools is essential so that you can be sure that the school is right for your child. If you are interested in finding out more about St. Michaels, please ring us and arrange an appointment. Our Head girl and boy would love to show you around our school and give you a pupil’s perspective.
