Our St. Michael’s community will Shine as Lights in the World.
Our school is distinctive in character as a Church of England Primary School. Our approach to work in R.E., Collective Worship and across the curriculum emphasises Christian Values and promotes good personal development.
Different religions are studied, so that all pupils learn to respect each other and live peacefully together, but our main focus is on Understanding Christianity. Our hope is for all our children, when they leave here, to be well prepared to take their place in the next phase of their education. Our aim is for them to ‘shine’ with confidence and to make responsible decisions, as they learn and grow.
The children are encouraged to recognise feelings and emotions in themselves and others, taught through the 'Zones of Regulation’. We have one golden rule in our school – to treat others in the same way you expect to be treated. This helps us to establish our community as an inclusive and supportive environment with nurture and wellbeing at its core.
We enhance dignity through our curriculum and policies, which are both underpinned by our school values and ‘My Personal Best’. These teach Christian values and core life skills to help the children become the best that they can be; demonstrating resilience, care for others and honesty.
We build wisdom in our pupils by encouraging them to be curious learners, constantly questioning and striving to answer those questions, so that they develop into lifelong learners.
