“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 firmly believe in catering for as many of the needs of our stakeholders as possible. We are fortunate to have pupils who come from Service Families at our school.
We are aware of the constant mobility factor for the children and the need to ensure that the systems are in place to help them settle when they join our school. We are therefore keen to ensure that we foster links with these children and their families
One form of support we offer the children is a weekly social meeting on a Wednesday known as ‘Social at School (fondly known as ‘S.A.S.’!) The ‘S.A.S.’ group meet to discuss aspects which include:
- Any concerns they may have as service children at our school;
- Buddy up with other service children across the school;
- Socialise and plan for events for the group;
- Enjoy buddy activities.
Spring Review 2020
The second half of the spring term has seen us finish the Little Troopers activities and each child took home their certificate for finishing this wonderful programme. Alongside this we took part in other creative activities. In our final session of the term each child took home a small bag of goodies with a craft activity to do at home, some card to do a design on and of course chocolate!
Carry on enjoying the sunshine and see if you can come up with ideas for craft and other activities for when we next meet!
Autumn Review 2019
This term we have enjoyed using some of the Little Trooper resources which have helped us share and talk about our feelings and concerns. We have also enjoyed various craft activities and playing games together.
Sadly we have had to say farewell to two of our members who have moved away – we wish them well as they settle into their new schools and homes.
We finished this term with a small Christmas celebration, sharing cake, cards and decorations. Finally a huge thank you to Mrs Turpin for her help and support this term.

The children in S.A.S were asked to carry out a review of the year and outline what they did and the impact it has had upon them. Here is the review:
