I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you visiting this site and our wonderful school. I have worked at St Michael's as a teacher since 2006 and have been headteacher since 2014. I am incredibly proud of our children and our school.
Saint Michael’s was established in 1953. We are a Voluntary Aided Catholic Primary School under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Westminster. We have two forms of entry in each year group and teach children from the age of 2 to 11. Our maintained Nursery was established in 2016 and, just like our school, is very successful.
Our school is maintained by the Diocese of Westminster, in partnership with Surrey County Council and serves the parishes of Saint Michael, Ashford and Saint David, Stanwell.
Our mission statement ‘Excellence; Enrichment; Enjoyment’ encapsulates what we aim to achieve at our school. We have a broad and balanced, bespoke school curriculum that both engages and challenges our pupils so they achieve excellence and become enthusiastic, independent, lifelong learners. The Gospel values and Catholic virtues of friendship, responsibility, respect, self-respect, honesty, forgiveness, tolerance, justice, compassion, patience, generosity, empathy and tolerance are the golden thread that run through all of our teaching and all of our relationships. We uphold and teach our pupils about British values such as democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths. We promote these values by our words and deeds; through daily acts of worship and by serving others. Our school is inclusive and our fundamental belief is that each child is unique and made in the image of God. We form strong partnerships with parents to ensure each child flourishes during the time they spend at our school.
A wide range of sporting, creative and academic enrichment opportunities are offered so that every child is valued and can develop their God-given talents. We work in partnership with parents to support every child’s personal development and to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically.
I am extremely proud to be the Head Teacher of a thriving, caring school community with supportive and dedicated staff, governors, parents and pupils.
