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

Our recent newsletter

21 October 2016 Newsletter

Dear All,

It was great to see so many parents come to parent evening last night. As well as being able to talk to the teachers, parents were also able to see their child’s books and receive their curricular targets after analysis of our term 1 assessments. These targets will also be in each child’s learning journal for them to refer to in lessons, they should also be able to refer to them and discuss them whilst doing their homework. Please do talk to your children about their targets and their progress towards meeting them. As has been the custom for some time now, each child will have a half term homework/activity to complete which they can access via the school website under the homework tab on the home page. Please do support your child to complete this– I look forward to seeing all their hard work when we return in term 2.

We had a lovely harvest festival with a liturgy in the infants and an amazing junior assembly led by St Pauls class (year 6). Thank you so much for the generous contributions of food which we have donated to the “ Caring Hands” charity.
Under the guidance of Mrs Stanczyk, our Eco Schools lead ,we are again participating in WOW– Walk on Wednesdays– well done to all of those children and their parents who have made a special effort to walk or “Park and Stride”. We have a competition running to create a road safety poster, a letter has already gone home with the children about this!

On Wednesday afternoon we had a visit from Ms Pauline Maddison who is the Assistant director of School Effectiveness and Inclusion from Medway LA. She had never been to St Michael’s before. I gave her a tour of the school and she was most impressed with the liveliness of our learning environment and the behaviour of our children. So well done everyone– I was very proud.

Have a safe and happy half term

Mrs Katharine 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.
