Welcome to St. Michael's C of E Primary School
Children get one chance at education and at St Michael’s we want to make sure it’s the best!
‘In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists’ Eric Hoffer
We cannot possibly teach our pupils everything they need to know, but we can spark interest, ignite passion for learning and fire up ambition to inspire every child to recognise and exceed their potential! We want our pupils to go out from our St Michael’s and burn brightly, stand out in their communities and succeed in a rapidly changing the world.
‘Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.’ William Butler Yeats
At St Michael's...
We spark interest and ignite passion for learning through our carefully planned and creative curriculum, a thematic approach to teaching and learning which is designed to support children’s natural curiosity and stimulate their creativity. It offers children the opportunity to work in depth, giving them the time they need to reflect, consolidate and transfer their learning. Direct experience is placed at the centre of the curriculum so that teachers draw out and develop children’s thinking and capacities in meaningful contexts.
We believe that we only achieve the best for your child by ensuring a close partnership between home and school. We have an 'open-door' policy and are always willing to talk about anything connected with your child or the school.
We strive, through support and high expectations, to ensure that your child is given every opportunity to exceed their potential in all aspects of development, whether social or academic and both inside and outside the classroom.
St Michael's Primary School has a bright and exciting future ahead of it, and as well as focusing on our children and their progress we work and collaborate with the other schools that are part of Salisbury Plain Academies. You may know about our plans for a new school at Larkhill and as we move forward I will be sure to keep you updated via this site.
