If families are unable to make any of these dates they are always welcome to make an appointment to visit and see all our wonderful staff in action as part of choosing a school for their child.

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.

Our School Values in term 2 October- December 2018

Each term we focus on a different value in school.

Our school value for Term 2 is resilence. The image we use to help us think about this value is a cat.  

Cats are curious and determined.  They do not give up easily when things get tricky.  We use this as an example of how we are unique, independent and we keep going even when we find things hard. We are true to ourselves. We have individual liberty.

We link the learning value of collaboration to the British Value of  democracy; my voice is valued and so is yours.

Our Term Dates are below:

Training Dates for staff (INSET days) when the school is closed to children.

Monday 29 October 2018 -  self reguation and development of independance for children

Tuesday 30 October 2018 - teaching and learning focus on behaviour

Thursday 3 january 2019 - planning and preparation for teaching and learning

Friday 4 January 2019 - reaserach into good practice in education

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.
