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
respect the values of: Church, Independence, Resilience, Caring, Learning and
Enjoyment for all. Belief in these values will nurture all as individuals and instil
in them the confidence to meet their full potential, providing them with the best
grounding for their future place in an ever changing world.

Safeguarding Policy Addendum for Corona Virus

From 20th March 2020 parents were asked to keep their children at home, wherever possible. Schools and all childcare providers were asked to provide care for a limited number of children – children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. This addendum contains details of our individual safeguarding arrangements.

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 Parents and Carers

I hope you have all been enjoying the beautiful weather but have also been practising social distancing. Even with the allowances announced yesterday of being able to have 6 people outside our households mixing in our gardens practising 2 ms distancing, we still need to be vigilant especially if we are intending on sending our children into school. We as a school community can do all we can to keep our children safe whilst in school but we need you as a parent to do the same outside school: keep social distancing, don’t hug our relatives if they don’t live with us, always practise social distancing if out and about and self isolate with our children if Covid symptoms become apparent.
I have written to parents and carers of children in the year groups permitted to come back to school on Monday so if you are a parent of a child in YR, Y1, Y6 reading this on the website and haven’t checked your email, please do and read our correspondence. If you are a key worker and will be sending your child into school or have a child in one of the other eligible groups, they will also stay in a bubble of 15, they can come to school in their ordinary clothes and they will be completing the online learning set for them by their teacher. They will be supervised by 2 adults for that bubble, they will play separately from the other children in the other bubbles and can be collected at any time before 3:30pm. If you have another child in either YR, Y1 or Y6 and need to collect that child at the allotted time, then please do take your other child who may be in the key worker bubble at the same time to avoid waiting in the playground. We will release your child to you in the playground personally.

For those of you who are not sending your child back to school either because they are not in the specified year groups or because you are ill or just because you don’t consider it right for you and your child at the moment- then that is fine. Please do however continue to complete the on line work that will be placed on our online learning platform- Jotter, and return the work in the usual way to your teacher. Please be aware that if your child is in YR, Y1 or Y6 and they are remaining at home, the work will be marked and sent back to you but perhaps not as promptly as before as your child’s teacher will now be in school teaching. Also for some of you with children in other year groups, your child’s teacher may have been called in to school to cover the supervision of the key workers children or those in the other groups and thus will be in school and not working from home, so their marking may not be as prompt as usual. Please do make every effort to continue with the online work if at home. You will see that it is now practice and consolidation of skills already learnt to prepare the children for coming back to school in September and moving into their new year groups.

At the moment we don’t know what the future will bring, we are doing our best to make the school “Covid-19 Safeguarded” but St Michaels is not the school that we know- it now has signs, bubbles, spots to stand or sit in, screens round the reception area, cordoned off corridors etc. It will be strange but we will do it and carry on the best we can in the “St Michael’s way” Remember to carry on washing your hands, wiping everything clean and encouraging your child to do the same, keep up with social distancing even in this glorious weather- this is what we have to do to “stay alert, control the virus, save lives”

Have a lovely weekend and week

Mrs Katharine Sexton

New School Entrants for Reception Class for September 2020

By now each child who indicated St Michael’s as their first choice of school for their child in Reception class this September would have received their offer letter. We would ask all parents to accept the offer and return it. This can be done by contacting the school at office@st-michaels.medway.sch.uk and that way we will have contact details and an idea of final numbers.
Our office staff will be gathering together packs to send out to you as well as details on how we can best induct your child to school in the current unprecedented situation. Hopefully this will be in person but initially it might be via video or presentation e-mailed to you with a chance to meet your child’s teacher and be able to come into school in person to have a look round whenever we are able to safely do so.
