Welcome to St Michael's Primary School in the village of Withyham.  We are a small Community School with wonderful children, dedicated staff, a strong Governing Body and supportive parents.  During our Ofsted inspection in March 2018 Inspectors said:

'The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.  The school has  retained the charm and appeal that makes St Michael’s a popular school with parents, carers and pupils alike.'

'Parents really like the small, family feel of the school.... many parents choose to travel to St Michael’s from further afield because of the care and guidance you offer to your pupils.'

St Michael’s is set in a beautiful village, offering each child high quality learning opportunities.  Our strength is our size, we know each child as an individual, ensuring teaching and learning meets the needs and interests of each pupil.

Our mission statement is 'learning and growing together'.  As well as high quality teaching, we offer a broader curriculum related to the local countryside. We grow herbs by the school entrance for use in cookery lessons, We have a well-tended school garden and  we sell produce after school on Fridays to the community during the growing season.

Learning Values in School:

Each term we focus on a different value in school:

The value we are focusing on in term 2 2020 is resilience.  Curious cats like to find things out, to get to the bottom of things and find out what is really going on. ​They like to ask the question why? ​People with resilience do not give up when things get tricky. Part of being resilient is recognising that everyone is unique and independent. People with resilience are true to themselves. 

The British value to focus on this term is individual liberty.

Term dates 2020- 2021

Please note Thursday 3 and Friday 4 September 2020 are training days for staff to meet and finalise plans for the reopening of school to all children.  The school is closed to childrem on these days.  

Children will return to school on Monday 7 September 2020.  We cannot wait to see everyone. 

Children Taking Medicines in School

We are unable to administer medicines unless the form below has been completed (this is in word so it may be returned to us via e-mail if easier).

Please note: medicines must be in their orginal packaging with dosage information included.  Ms Udell and Mrs O'Shea have received specific training to administer medicines.  The form below is a crucial part of our procedures, please hand this information in at the office or if easier email it to the school office at:  office@st-michaels.e-sussex.sch.uk.  Thank you for your support and understanding in ensuring we can always administer medicines safely in school.
