Welcome to the New Term

A warm welcome back to the Autumn term and to all our new children and to our new staff members: Ms Prentice, Year 4 Class teacher and our new Deputy Head. Mrs Dean, Year 1 Class teacher and Mrs Baxter, TA in Year 3 class.

We hope you have had a wonderful Summer break.   We have lots of good news to report:

Congratulations to St. Michael’s Pre-school who received “Outstanding” in their recent Ofsted conducted last term. This is a fantastic achievement for Debbie May and her team.  Well done.

During the holidays we had new internal doors replaced throughout, and the school looks like new. It has made a real difference.  In addition the Ladies Cloakroom has been refurbished. 

Parents may have noticed the superb Astro-turf surface laid outside Year 3 classroom. This will provide a safe environment for play and sport and our very grateful thanks go to Mr Corke who spent many hours of hard labour fitting this for us.  Thank you also to the Friends for the funding of this.  We hope it is admired and appreciated by all. 

We look forward to welcoming new prospective parents to look around our school for the Primary Admissions intake for September 2017.

Please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Greetings from Mr Mallon

Christmas bell with holly

On behalf of the teachers, pupils, parents and governors of St Michael's School I would like to extend my best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous Christmas and New Year to all the local community. We have had an extremely busy last couple of months at school with many highlights. Our Remembrance Service held in school was beautifully observed and, through the generosity of our parents, raised £360 for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Our newly formed School Choir performed a selection of Christmas Carols to the residents of Knebworth Care Home and Monread Lodge. Our Christmas Bazaar was a resounding success and raised money to refurbish our Millennium Triangle play area for the children to enjoy in years to come. Our Reception and KS1 children performed their Nativity at the Village Hall and our KS2 children held a Carol Concert at St Michael's Church. On the Sports front, Mrs Deane ran a skipping challenge for Years 3-6, with the overall winner being asher Garnham, who skipped an incredible 186 times in one minute! Finally St Michael's School has been nominated for 'School of the Year' in the pretigious Hertfordshire Service to Sports Awards ceremony at the University of Hertfordshire. The School Games Organiser chose us ahead of all the primary schools in Welwyn and Hatfield, and we are up against the top ten schools in the county, which is a massive achievement. I will keep you posted of how we do in the next newsletter. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and sharing all the achievements and successes of St Michael's with you all. Mr Mallon (Head Teacher).
