“I came so that you may have life, life in all its fullness”

Our recent newsletter

9th December 2016 Newsletter

Dear All,

Its now getting very exciting as we get closer to the festive season and we have lots happening. After school today we have our Christmas fair. Thank you so much to those parents and carers who donated gifts, prizes and cakes. We are all really grateful. I would like to publicly thank in advance all the members of the Parent Association especially those who come to the meetings and have organised the event and worked so hard. I would also like to thank Miss Cook, a teaching assistant from the school who has also been really busy organising outside school hours. I’m sure the event will be a resounding success.

This afternoon I’m off to Rochester Cathedral to watch and join in with our Year 4 children who will be singing Christmas Carols in the Rochester Cathedral Carol Festival. I am so looking forward to this and to hearing the children sing along with some other primary schools in Medway who are taking part.

There is lots happening: next Tuesday 13th December – the nursery and Reception classes perform their special nativity at 10am and 2pm which is always so lovely– cute beyond words! The performance from children in Key stage 1 ie Years 1 and 2  will be on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th December at 2pm and then our carol service which this year we are doing jointly with St John Fisher school will be later on at 7pm in St Michael’s church. Also that day our school choir will be singing at Acorn Residential Home to entertain the residents there. Also on Thursday 14th December the children in Early Years ie St Jude and St Andrew will be going to the Brook theatre to see the performance there . On Friday 16th December we are all  off to the Pantomime at Central Theatre in the morning and the children in the Nursery are off to the Brook for their turn at the Theatre.

Phew– its all happening here at St Michaels!

Mrs Kathy Sexton

Our Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services, and Skills.  It is the government organisation tasked with inspecting and regulating care for children and young people.  This includes inspecting educational facilities for learners of any age. Read full report on Ofsted’s website.

British Values

The Government have made it a requirement to “create and enforce a clear expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs”.

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.

Featured School Policies

Here at St Michae’s we take Anti-Bullying very seriously. As part of our regular document revision process, we have reviewed these and made them immediately available from here.
