Severe Weather Arrangements

We would like to clarify the arrangements for severe weather conditions. We will always make every effort to keep the school open but there may be unavoidable circumstances which force closure to occur. If we do experience severe weather resulting in hazardous conditions, we may be forced to close the School.

20th January 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,

We have had a really busy and exciting week at St Michael’s with our Multi Faiths week. Every class had the opportunity to cook some ethnic food, we had visits to the local Mosque and Synagogue, learned about the traditions of other faiths and added resources to demonstrate our learning journey to our multi faith display of resources and artefacts in the infant hall. Many of the children brought in artefacts, prayer books, traditional dress etc to support us and talked very respectively about their faith.

I am so grateful to all the staff who participated and worked so hard during this themed week. Trips out, visitors to assembly and cooking etc are the sort of activities that the children will always remember of their time at St Michaels and I can always count on the staff to go “that extra mile”.

I am also very grateful to Mrs Collins for organising the week.

Tuesday 31st January will be our next Parent Forum meeting. This will begin from drop off time at 8:30am for tea/coffee and refreshments with the meeting commencing at 9am. A separate letter/invite has gone out today. The chair of governors Mrs Margaret McDowall will be present. Ideally we would like a parent representative from each year group to be on the forum so that all viewpoints can be contributed to and heard. We look forward to seeing as many parents as possible there.

I had the pleasure of taking 6 children from Y6 to write and record a radio play at Oaklands School last Tuesday. We all worked on the play together and then went up for the recording. The children edited, produced and read their play brilliantly. Again they were so well behaved, great ambassadors for the school. I look forward to being able to share the finished play recording with everyone.

Have a good weekend

Mrs Kathy Sexton

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is a sum of money allocated in addition to core school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.
