St. Michael’s is a one form entry primary school located in Sandhurst. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs who are supported through school action is below the national average. The proportion of pupils who are supported through school action plus or have a statement of special educational needs is slightly above the national average. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for those eligible for free school meals, looked after children and children from service families) is significantly lower than average.
At St Michael’s, we value the uniqueness of the individual and we offer our children a curriculum which is enriched and diverse, enabling us to inspire them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens of the future. We live out our Christian values daily and foster supportive and trusting relationships with God and all members of the community. All staff work hard to achieve the highest possible standards within an inclusive school setting. We value the strong and close relationship we have with parents and work in partnership to enhance each child’s learning. We recognise that all children will begin their early school journey from different starting points, but the goal remains the same, to develop each child’s individual potential and celebrate their success.
All children have different talents, interests and abilities. At St. Michael’s we recognise these differences by providing a wide range of opportunities both within the classroom and through extra-curricular clubs. These include residential visits to Hook Court and Lakeside in Cumbria, art, music, dance and choir activities and representing the school in competitive sporting fixtures.
Our aim is that St. Michael’s Primary School will be a thriving, educational community where all children will enjoy learning, act responsibly towards adults and one another, be challenged by their teachers and achieve success.
