At St Michael’s RC Primary School our vision is to create a primary school where children are ‘Walking together in the footsteps of Jesus through kindness and love, growing together as life-long learners’

As our School Vision statement outlines, we aim to grow Confident, Creative and Curious life-long learners that feel safe and happy as they ALL aspire to realise their full potential as individuals.

Our Curriculum is delivered through a kind, loving and nurturing approach, walking together in the footsteps of Jesus. Following the Catholic virtues of love, kindness, respect, forgiveness, resilience, hopefulness, honesty and reflection we nurture and protect our young people and each other in all they do and say. With the 5Ws at the heart of each Curriculum area, we want our children to have a life-long love for learning and achieve their full potential, by providing opportunities for them to develop as independent, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their wider school and parish community: to celebrate and value other faiths, beliefs and cultures of modern Britain, as well as to empower them to make the right choices in and for the next stages of their education and for the world of work.

By working with our families at all levels we intend to create an aspirational school community, modelling how to walk together in the footsteps of Jesus demonstrating how we value everyone and successes of all kinds are celebrated.

We intend that all learners should enjoy their education and that most should make very good progress in all areas of learning. Pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their potential. Those who are most able are challenged and supported through appropriate questioning and extension activities. Targeted support is given to embed skills, to develop at their own pace or simply to learn in a style that best suits their individual needs. As Our Vision statements suggest we as a school “do everything in love.” (1 Cor. 16:14).
