We are rated as a good school by Ofsted March 2018

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.  At our recent Ofsted 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:

Our school value for Term 2 2019 is resillienece.

This term we are discussing the value of resillienece. We use the image of a cat to help us focus on this value. 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? Everyone is unique and independent. We do not give up easily when things get tricky. We are true to ourselves.

The British value we are focusing on this term is individual liberty.

Term dates 2019- 2021

Children Taking Medicines in School

We are unable to administer medicines unless the form below has been completed. 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.
