Our vision is to provide a happy, positive and safe environment where children and staff have the confidence to achieve anything and make outstanding progress. We believe in an inspiring, enriched curriculum which promotes a thirst for knowledge, treats everyone as individuals and excites all as learners.
Jeremiah 29 verse 11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
We are a welcoming, ambitious Christian school where different faiths and cultures are respected, and where everyone is valued as a precious gift of God, created in Gods image. We recognise and develop the potential of each and every person and tirelessly pursue excellence, empowering all with the confidence for lifelong learning and a readiness to play a positive role in the community.
John 13 v 34: "I give you a new command; love each other. You must love each other as I have loved you."
We believe that there are 4 key values which characterise our school. These have been chosen through consultation, identifying the needs and interests of the pupils at St Michael's CE (A) Primary School.
The love of God revealed in Jesus Christ shapes the life of our Church of England Primary School. We value and respect the diverse cultures and faiths represented by our school and wider community. We encourage pupils to share their experiences of faith and culture for the benefit of all.
We celebrate our rich, vibrant community in all aspects of our school life. We are committed to 'music for all' and want to immerse pupils in a high quality curriculum that embraces pupils' diverse backgrounds, interests and abilities.
We recognise the importance of preparing our pupils for the rest of their lives. We aim to provide them with the skills to be:-
Independent, resilient, aspirational, emotionally confident, caring and a team player.
Through our unique location we develop pupils' knowledge and understanding of the local community and wider world. Pupils appreciate their responsibility to care for the world we share. Our links with other schools and places broaden pupils' understanding of the world around them.
Underpinning everything we do in school is a relentless focus on the acquisition of basic skills, for without the ability to read and write and apply basic mathematical concepts to problems, pupils will be unable to access any other form of learning.
