Our recent newsletter

2nd December 2016 Newsletter

Dear All,

At the beginning of the week I had the true delight of working in the nursery for the morning, it was brilliant– the children there are wonderful, so friendly and enthusiastic for their learning/playing. I had a fantastic time, I was so impressed with our nursery staff who make every opportunity for learning through play– the richness of vocabulary, the stimulation of activities and the overall atmosphere of calmness and care was overwhelming. It made me wish that my children were 3 again so that they could have experienced it!!

Next week is assessment week and the children will be doing some tests just so that teachers can ascertain how much progress they have made since September, address any gaps in learning and tailor their teaching accordingly.

We are now approaching the second Sunday of Advent when we light the second purple candle on the advent wreath to commemorate our waiting for our Lord at Christmas.

We are into December and after weeks of self control, we can officially go all Christmassy in school now!! There are lots of Christmas things happening over the next few weeks so please keep checking the newsletter and referring to the website and Parentpay for up to date information.

On Friday 9th December the children in Y4 will be singing in the Rochester Cathedral Carol Festival. This is the first time that we have entered this and it is really exciting for St Michael’s. I’ve heard the practices and they are amazing, the singing is truly beautiful and I am really looking forward to seeing the children perform next week. Entry is ticket only.

Wrap up– its really cold out there!!!

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.
