Welcome to Class 4!
I would like to wish everyone in Class 4 a warm welcome to our class page.
I look forward to all the fun activities, adventures and learning we will be exploring together in the coming months.
If you need to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is valued and recognised for their unique contribution. We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential. The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.
