"Come Holy Spirit, I invite you into the very depths of my being. Lead me, guide me, coach me, encourage me and challenge me. Amen."
St Michael's Church of England Primary School is at the heart of the village of St Michael's and adjacent to the Church of St Michael's and All Angels, with very strong community links.
From the moment you walk through the door you will feel the warm welcome that St Michael's Church of England Primary School is famous for. Generations have been sending their children to this school in the knowledge they will not only have an exciting learning experience, but also will be valued and cherished in our caring, Christian environment.
We are a single form entry primary school which means that your child will be taught in their age appropriate class. We have a maximum roll of 210 and a dynamic teaching team that puts excellence and enjoyment at the heart of their teaching. If your child requires additional support in order to access the curriculum, we have an incredibly experienced team of support staff who work closely with our SENCO and parents/carers to maximise each indiviual's potential.
So why not come and have a look and see for yourselves what we have to offer your child?
We look forward to welcoming you.
"It feels a family community. Teaching values link with the church. The children are happy"
"Great atmosphere, older children looking out for the younger ones, everybody knows everybody, very friendly. Monitoring of children's progress and moving them on if appropriate. Children are awarded for good behaviour and good work which encourages them to want to do more"
"Passion for the children to receive the best education possible"
"The reason I chose to send my children was and still is as I like high standards of care and education, which I believe the School strives to reach"
"Friendly, welcoming and hard working"
"I feel the values are very important and from watching the children at shared worship, I feel it is a strength within the school"
When recruiting new staff there could be opportunities to consider a contract that enable advertising teaching post across two schools e.g. if both schools needed a part-time member of staff then there would be the opportunity to consider advertising for a full time teaching post which would probably encourage more teachers applying for the post and recruiting a strong candidate. Recruitment and retention is a big issue nationally. There are schools out there that are heavily relying on agency staff at present.
