“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.”
We promote our Vision through the key words:
‘Create – Equip – Partner’
At St Michael’s we value ideas and input from pupils on a range of important issues to make the school environment more stimulating, safe and enjoyable for all. Listening to the “pupil voice” is therefore a priority for each class as well as at a whole school level. Pupils can share their ideas and views through the School Council, debating club, during feedback of lesson classroom observations and also with the appointment of some staff by participating on the interview panel. We also have UNICEF Ambassadors, who represent the school at the annual Model United Nations General Assembly at Wandsworth Town Hall, and Eco Warriors.
Another strand of pupil voice is through acting as ‘Ambassadors’ at school, taking visitors around, sharing their views on the school and how it is run as well as participating in presentations to delegates who visit our school.
Each year we conduct pupil surveys covering a number of different areas, such as behaviour and attitudes to learning, pupil development, sports and RE. Details of the 2019 Pupil Survey are below.
Sometimes we conduct pupil voice surveys on specific topics, to learn more about pupil sentiment on certain issues. In October 2020 we asked a representative group of pupils from Years 2-6 to reflect on how they are finding it to be back at school in the Autumn Term, following several months of lockdown. A summary and analysis of the pupil responses is below.
