St Michael’s is a community school in a small 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.

Our School Values in term 1 2017

Each term we focus on a different value in school. Our school value for Term 1 is collaboration .

The image we use to help us think about this value are bees working together
Bees - Collaboration – working and learning together in a democracy, my voice is valued and so is yours. 

We link collaboration to the British Value of Democracy.

This term we will also be holding elections for our School Council which will be focusing on how we can improve playtime activities.
