Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Michael’s Community Primary School located in the village of Withyham.  We are a small, happy school with the philosophy that, young or old, we are all learning and growing together. As you walk into the school you will pass pots of herbs growing.  We use these in our cookery classes as part of the broad curriculum we offer in addition to academic subjects.

We have a dedicated staff that strives to achieve the best educational outcomes for all children whatever their starting points.

We take children from the local village of Withyham as well as further afield.  We have four classes, with around 90 children at school.  The classes are arranged as follows:

Acorn Class- Reception 
Elm Class- Year 1/2
Silver Birch Class- Year 3/4
Oak Class- Year 5/6

Our mixed-age classes add to our family atmosphere at school.  We have a buddy system where Year 6 children look after Reception children when they start school and the children always remember this friendship as they move through the school.  Children look forward to this responsibility when they are in the top class in year 6.

We have a School Council who are involved in making decisions about how we run the school, an example is reviewing the school reward system that we have in place for good behaviour.  Pupil Voice is important and the School Council regularly feeds back ideas from Class Councils in which all children participate.

Visitors will meet our Class Ambassadors who will explain how their class is organised and the learning that is taking place when visitors arrive in their class.

I look forward to meeting you

Catherine O'Shea

Head Teacher
