The children have arrived safely and are enjoying the activities. We will be uploading more photos here from their time there.
I am pleased to welcome you to St. Michael’s and to the start of our partnership in your child’s education.
St Michael’s is a two form entry primary school with a 52 place nursery. It has been serving our local Catholic community in Chatham for over 150 years.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
