St. Michael’s is a flourishing, forward-thinking and outstanding Church school where the leadership and management are a driving force behind the school community, embracing and celebrating being a faith school and fulfilling our combined Mission and Vision which underpins all that we do.
The leadership and management are strategic in fulfilling of the school’s Mission and Vision and in so doing, shapes the direction of the school community for the future. As a school we believe in educating the whole child and teaching children to be good citizens which firmly is underpinned by the Gospel values.
St. Michael’s CE School works in partnership with Saint Cecilia’s Wandsworth under the umbrella of a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ to introduce innovative practice that reflects the school’s Mission and Vision and provides the local-community with the opportunity of a whole through Christian education from 3 – 18 years of age.
The Leadership and Governors work in partnership to “ensure that the relationship between the school, church and diocese is supportive and sustainable, enhancing the learning of both pupils and the congregation. It is a link that is widely acknowledged and valued by all members of the school community.” The school has worked in the past with the Advisor from the SDBE to disseminate and share good practice with other schools as well as supporting other Church schools within the Borough of Wandsworth and in Hertfordshire. The Headteacher us the current link for the Wandsworth Church Custer and supports Heads.
The above statement has been quantified by Angela Rundle, our School Link Inspector for the Local Authority, where she noted and stated in her ‘Note of Visit to the Board of Governors: ‘St Michael’s continues to be outstanding in all judgement areas. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of the school’s Christian mission and values and enables pupils to thrive and develop to the best of their potential. British values are fully incorporated into worship and classroom discussion.’ This continues to be a true reflection of our school and all that it stands for.
