All the classes contributed to this display of a cross which hangs in the school entranceAt St. Michael's we strive to inform and enrich the lives of all the pupils in our care. The formative primary years are crucial for children, who need huge amounts of positive input from school and home alike. We would wish to see the pupils develop their potential physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. To this end, we endeavour to promote excellence and confidence in all areas, whilst always trying to maintain the precious wonder of childhood which can be lost all too quickly in today's society.

As a Church of England school we are pleased to offer Religious Education and Worship which is Christian and bible-based. The pupils attend St. Michael's Church three times a year and the ministers take assemblies in school once a week. We aim to develop and maintain Christian values within the school and hope that parents who send their children to St. Michael's will understand and be supportive of this position.

Pupils will have opportunities to take part in practical work, go on visits and outings, learn French and use information technology. Pupils will also wear uniform, have regular homework and undertake spelling and times tables tests. There are regular opportunities for parents and staff to communicate about the progress of pupils and foster a positive partnership which will benefit the pupils' education.

Please do visit the school if you want to find out more. If you are a prospective parent we look forward to a happy association with you and your children.
