The Lord says, ‘For I know the plans I have for you …. plans to give you hope and a future.’ Jeremiah 29 verse 11
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.
Mission statement and Values
Learning to Love – Loving to Learn: ‘I give you a new command; love each other. You must love each other as I have loved you.’ John 13 v 34
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 God’s 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.
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.
The hope revealed through Jesus Christ inspires us, as we equip pupils with the skills, passion and drive, to achieve goals, giving them confidence as they journey through life.
We encourage our pupils to love one another as He loves us. Through our unique location at the heart of the community, the pupils of St Michael’s play a prominent role in understanding their responsibility to care for the world we share.
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.
