St. Michael's CE School

Working Together For The Good Of All

“St. Michael’s Church of England School, established upon Christian foundations and living out the Christian faith, is committed to providing every child with an excellent education.”

School Organisation Information

At St. Michael’s the school is divided into four Phases:

All of our classes are mixed and reflect the make up of the school in terms of gender, race and ability.

The maximum number of children we have in each year group is 52 part time equivalent in Mini St. Mikes nursery and 60 in each year group from Reception to Year 6, where there are 30 per class. We do not exceed this number and we are unable to admit any more children to the relevant year group unless an Appeal has been successful.

Timings for the School Day

Staggered Soft Start of Day 

We operate a staggered soft start into school and a staggered exit from school.  This has proved to be highly successful for the school as the children are far more confident and settled coming into school and have a pre start activity -  learning begins!

Staggered End of Day Collection 

Safeguarding and School Security

As part of the school's commitment to safeguarding after the school day begins we shut all the gates at 08:40am, with the exception of the Early Years Nursery gate which closes just after 8:50am. The gates are reopened at 2:55pm in readiness for the end of the school day. During the staggered start of day, the gates are always supervised by members of staff to monitor and welcome the safe arrival of pupils.

Access during the day is via the buzzer entry at the main gate. This ensures that the children remain in a safe environment during the school day. If a child has to be collected for an appointment, parents should buzz the Office and a member of the Office Team will collect the child from the classroom and bring them to the main entrance.

The school office is open between 8am until 4:00pm to answer any queries, deal with emails and telephone calls.

We ask that parents/carers endeavour to collect your child on time, as it causes distress to children and inconvenience to the school if you are late collecting them. In the event that there are repeated and unexplained late collections a meeting will be arranged with a senior member of staff to discuss the issue.
