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.

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 and Mrs Cleall Harding, Mrs Hurst or Mrs White will only be too happy to help.

Welcome to St Michael’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery. St Michael’s is a 2 form entry primary school with a nursery unit attached. We have a vibrant, inspiring, happy school with high expectations for every member of our school community with Christ at the centre of everything we do.

“Pupils love coming to this school and speak about it with a sense of pride. They feel well supported by adults in school. They enjoy their learning because teachers make it relevant to them. Leaders and staff want the very best for their pupils. Consequently, pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education” ofsted November 2019

We would like to offer parents and carers an opportunity to see round our lovely school. Due to Covid and the need to socially distance this will be done after school on the following dates
Monday 9th November 4-5pm
Wednesday 11th November 4-5pm
Friday 12th November 4-5pm

Each tour will be in a 10 minute slot. We can only have 1 household/family at a time in no more than 6 but children are welcome to come as well. During the tour you will meet the Early Years team, senior members of staff and the headteacher Mrs Katharine Sexton who will answer any questions you may have.

We look forward to seeing you

20th November 2020 Newsletter

Dear all,

This is national “anti-bullying week” and the children have been carrying out various activities to bring the whole aspect of bullying to the forefront of our thoughts– how to keep safe, what to do if we witness or are on the receiving end of bullying and what bullying actually is and how serious it is. Thank you to all the children who came to school in their odd socks on Monday as part of the activities, reminding us that we are all different and our difference is to be celebrated. The children have reviewed our anti-bullying policy which will be replaced on our website once finalised and each class has appointed their new Anti-Bullying champions (please see overleaf).

As you may know we have had to close year 2 due to a positive case of Covid. Nearly every school has been affected with the current Covid virus situation with children being sent home, bubbles closing or staff and family isolating. It seems even more prevalent now than it ever did in the full first lock down in the spring and a normal Christmas is looking very unlikely. Parents and carers have been great remembering to wear masks, not coming into school un necessarily and informing us if their child is presenting with Covid-like symptoms so that a test can be arranged. It is really important that we maintain social distancing whilst at the school fence. I know its only natural to watch your child walk into school and wave to them, especially our very little ones. But some parents are lingering at the bottom gate which is making social distancing tricky. Of course we want to chat to our friends who are also parents of children at the school but we are in lock down. We shouldn’t be socialising with more than one person outside our household even in the open air. Standing in  a huddle having a chat without a mask on is normal behaviour, but we are not in normal times and have to follow the rules. Sleepovers as well, certainly during the present lockdown is also a big no no! I know it sounds really strict and boring but we have to protect ourselves and all those in our school community if we are to keep open and try to carry on as best as we can.

Have a lovely and safe weekend      

Mrs Katharine Sexton

The Harvest Festival at St. Michaels’s

We have been celebrating the festival of Thanksgiving together as a whole school community.
The Year 6 shared their gratitude for God’s great bounty through prayer and liturgy. The children have created a beautiful ‘HARVEST DANCE’ and wonderful ‘HARVEST ART’.
As a whole school, we reflected and thought about the importance of Thanksgiving to God and how can we share our blessings with others in need.
