At St. Michael’s, we WELCOME all visitors who immediately are met with our child-friendly mission statement that is proudly displayed in the entrance porch telling them that they are entering a friendly happy place where children follow the ways of Jesus by loving, valuing and respecting each other.
At St. Michael's, we WORSHIP God through our class prayers, Masses, music, assemblies, class prayer and worship services, through our actions and through the way we live and treat each other.
At St. Michael's, the WORD of God is placed at the centre of all that we do, following diocesan guidelines and an enhanced curriculum that allows pupils to celebrate the word of God in an interesting and fun way.
At St. Michael's, we WITNESS a loving, caring God in the way we live, the way we treat each other and in the way we reach out to others.
At St. Michael's, the WELFARE of pupils is paramount in the way we care for and support each other, how pupils feel safe and how each pupil is encouraged to develop spiritually, academically and physically.
As a school, we celebrated a lovely occasion with Fr Rowan as he reached his Golden Jubilee. The Mass was beautifully organised and enjoyed by all who attended. We wish him many more years of health and happiness.
Another lovely evening saw the Retirement Mass for Mr Lea and Mrs Berry. We celebrated all their hard work, commitment and exemplary years of service for St. Michael’s.
The ‘Year of Mercy’ door arrived. The day began with a whole school assembly. Key stage ‘Prayer and Worship’ services took place throughout the morning, so that each child could walk through the door. The activities Staff and children shared hopefully made the event more memorable. Support staff, midday supervisors, kitchen staff, admin etc. were all given the opportunity to participate in the experience.
A meeting for the ‘Year of Mercy Music & Dance Festival’ was hosted at our school, with all educational establishments involved agreeing the final plans for the event in October.
The choir continues to practise each Wednesday after school for one hour. Two songs for the Festival have been selected, chosen to promote the Year of Mercy theme.
A creative idea to share our Faith, was a family event called ‘Crafty Kindness’ which took place in St. Michael’s Parish Hall. It was well supported by families from both schools and a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The Y3 pupils from both schools attended a Mass at St. Bernadette’s, celebrated by Fr. Andrew, to complete their journey through the Sacramental Programme. Afterwards the children enjoyed socialising together.
Mini-Vinnies Pizza celebration with St. Bernadette’s. Celebration of all their achievements this year.
Y6 pupils attended the Marist Centre to reflect on their time at Primary School and to prepare for the next part of their journey in education. They prayed, laughed and sang together and had a very enjoyable day.
We were inspired by two class assemblies: Y4’s theme being ‘Friendship’, Y1’s exploring ‘Growth’. Parents appreciated the opportunity to worship with their children.
For the first time, a scheme called ‘Real Love Rocks’ which is a CSE prevention scheme, was delivered to the Y6 children. Their response was thoughtful and they realised the importance of learning about such issues.
We look forward to our end of Year Mass on the last day of term.
