St Michael’s RC Primary School is a Catholic family
of faith, following the teaching of Christ. We strive
to create an environment where all members of our
school community become caring, independent and
resilient individuals who fulfil their potential.

Welcome to St Michael’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery. We serve the local community providing a Catholic education within our whole school ethos embedded in Christian values. Our school values are called CIRCLE values and stand for Care, Independence, Resilience, Church, Learning and Enjoyment. We encourage our whole school community to follow these values to ensure that we all conduct ourselves with respect as individuals created by Christ.

Our whole staff, whether teaching or support, strive to provide our children with a world class education to equip them with the tools that they will need to lead successful and aspirational lives – always striving for the best that they can be.

I am honoured to be the Head Teacher of this school with its atmosphere of learning, fun and enjoyment. I hope you find this website helpful and informative. However this is only a snap shot of what we provide for our children and for all the adults working in our school community. Please do feel free to come and visit our vibrant school by contacting the school office by phone 01634 832578 or email office@stmichaeslrcp.org and Mrs Cleall Harding, Mrs Hurst or Mrs White will only be too happy to help.

Dear All,

We have had the first of our parent consultation days with class teachers seeing their parents during the  school day rather than in one big evening.. This is new and it has been very well received! Teachers and parents have commented on how quiet, private and more personal it has been to actually have a 2 way conversation with parents and children looking through work and discussing progress, rather than being in a loud, crowded hall. The days have also been very well attended. We will definitely repeat this again in the Spring term. We will let you know the dates as soon as possible so that you can make arrangements.

Staff had a session with other local schools on Monday discussing how we approach the teaching of reading. Its good to share ideas with other professionals and to know that what we do at St Michael’s is regarded as good practice. We have now set up our “ outside library” in the outdoor classroom which allows the children to read quietly at lunch times. Every child will be issued with a form for parents to complete to allow their child to have a library card which can be used to borrow books from Chatham Library. We do not qualify for the Mobile library as we are within walking distance from the main library so there is plenty of opportunity to read and get fit. We will be holding our own reading challenges with our first one taking place in December in the run down to Christmas– we are a “reading school” here at St Michaels so please hear your child read at home and use some of the tips you would have picked up from our recent “ Come and see…how we teach reading” sessions last week.

October is Black History Month and on  Wednesday 17th October we will have Black History Day. We are inviting all children to come to school if they wish in traditional African clothes or just African patterns when we will be participating in activities celebrating the richness of our school community.

Don’t forget Harvest Caring Hands donations for Thursday and Friday of next week.

Have a lovely weekend  

Mrs K Sexton

We are embracing myriad ways of keeping fit and healthy – including walking to school once a week through the KM Charity Team’s Active Wow (Walk on Wednesday) scheme and skipping for two minutes every day.
