I am very proud to be Head Teacher of St Michael’s Primary School. There has been a school here at the heart of the community for nearly one hundred and fifty years. Though the school has expanded and changed over time, we remain committed to serving our community as a place of education and nurture for our children.
As a Church school, our culture, systems and curriculum are steeped in our Christian values of Peace, Courage and Respect. We express our Christian vision with the verse in Matthew – “Let your light shine”. For us this means helping our children to develop and display a Christian character and values.
Our children work hard and learn a challenging knowledge rich curriculum. We also place reading and high quality texts at the centre of our work, as reading is the key to all learning. They leave our school ready for the next stage with skills, knowledge and a love of literature.
I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school
Our School Vision
Like a lighthouse, St Michael’s is a beacon of safety and stability. It takes courage to learn and remember knowledge, develop new skills and allow your own light to shine in the world. We respect our differences and know that working peacefully together allows our lights to shine more brightly.
'Let your light shine' Matthew 5:16
