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.

Our recent newsletter

13th January 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,

As you know we are experiencing a spell of very cold weather. In the event of the school having to be closed either in the morning or during the school day we will notify all parents via Parentpay text/email, then update the website with details and an announcement will be made on Heart FM. The radio stations will not announce a school opening so parents will have to check their texts and e mails or log onto the home page of our website. A letter was sent home with further details earlier this week, a copy of the letter can also be found on the home page of our school website. 

Still on the topic of the school website, if parents go to the home webpage and click on the “ curriculum” tab on the top tool bar and then their child’s year group they will find the class page with all the topics and curriculum that the children will be covering until Easter. On the left hand side of the class page there is a synopsis of this info on the “housekeeping letter”. Please read this. Also in the event of snow and school closure , under the “homework” tab on the home page and by clicking on the respective year group, your child will find some homework or task to be getting on with whilst at home.

After school clubs will begin next week. We will also be running after school booster classes for Y2. Soon we will be sending information out regarding booster classes for Y6. This week the children were assessed using the 2016 Sats papers. Bearing in mind that we still have a few months to go to May, they have all done very well– the results look promising. Well done to the hard work of the children and their teachers– keep it up!

Keep warm

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.
