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.

Our class reward system is Class Dojos. Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more. Children will be rewarded with prizes / certificates. However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of homework etc.

Each half term, children will take part in a handwriting challenge to improve their cursive writing ensuring that all letters are formed correctly and are the appropriate size. This will require lots of practise in school and at home. Children will be rewarded with 10 dojos when they pass each challenge and 25 dojos if they pass all challenges.
Homework will be sent home every Thursday and must be returned to school on the following Wednesday. There will be a variety of tasks such as spellings, reading, R.E. tasks and learning logs.
Learning logs are a chance for children to be creative and show off their learning each week and should aim to reflect on a different subject each time. Learning logs will be shared with other peers and the most creative will be rewarded with dojos.
Homework is the children’s responsibility and failure to return homework will result in loss of playtime or golden time to complete it. If children find the homework difficult they must let us know by Monday and we will offer support in a lunchtime club.
We aim for 100% attendance in every class. We want our children in school each day so that they have every opportunity to learn and develop in order to reach their full potential. Dojos are given each week for 100% attendance.
During playtime, children are able to buy a snack (fruit / cheese 25p and water 55p) or they can bring their own healthy snack into school such as, fruit & vegetables, toast or cheese.
If you are unsure whether or not you need to pay for school dinners, call into the office and they will be happy to help.
P.E. kits should be left in school at all times. It will be sent home each half term and should be brought back when the children return to school. Trainers cannot be worn for P.E. children must wear pumps and the correct P.E. kit.
