This Friday, 24th June, five Year 6 children were invited to the Dominion Theatre in London for the third PIXL Celebration event. This event recognises the efforts and achievements of children. More than in the other years, our children had to draw on reserves of energy and enthusiasm as they had only returned from France at 10:30 pm the night before. They were awarded certificates and gift vouchers by James Cracknell OBE who then later posed for the following picture with them all.
We are thrilled to have received the final copy of our Ofsted Inspection report. After their visit to us in the final week of the Autumn term, to be able to publish an "Outstanding" report here gives us all great pride. The efforts of all members of staff, no matter what their role, has contributed over the years to getting us to this position and it is a testament to our continuing drive that we have begun the New Year with as much enthusiasm.
Our children are a great credit to us and it is wonderful to read that the Inspection team picked out many of the qualities which we have seen for years, particularly with regard to the values the children talk so freely about and the way they conduct themselves.
St. Michael’s C of E Primary School, underpinned by its Christian Foundation, seeks to balance the importance of high academic expectations with providing a happy and ordered school community where children of any race, ethnicity and culture have equal opportunities to excel. Within such an atmosphere all children are enabled to develop and thrive as they prepare to face the later challenges of teenage years and adulthood in a rapidly changing and challenging world.
Governors and staff are together ambitious for the school. They vigorously take up the challenge of new initiatives, whether they are school or government led, in order to provide a school that is positive and forward thinking.
