Welcome to St Michael's C of E Primary School
I am delighted to be able to welcome you all to St Michael's Primary School, Larkhill. A brand new, state of the art primary school with a beautiful new nursery. We are proud to be an open, inclusive, diverse church school at the centre of our community in Larkhill, where children are encouraged to shine brightly, to stand out. This is a new site for us, but not a new site for families, because we have evidence that people have lived here for thousands of years, including the families of the architects of Stonehenge!
We realise that we cannot possibly teach our pupils everything they need to know, but we are committed to ensuring we spark interest, ignite passion for learning and fire up ambition to inspire every child to recognise and exceed expectations. We able to do this with the fabulous facilities at the school which include extensive, beautifully landscaped grounds with a dedicated sports pitch and multi use games area.
St Michael's is committed to a curriculum that takes learning outside and is delighted to have areas like the meadow garden and exploration trail as outdoor learning areas.
I feel hugely privileged being here, thinking back to the cut in the chalk that we saw just over a year ago, to this! An incredible school, by which I mean not only the building but the individuals within it; providing our children with the firm foundation they need to go out from here, standout in their communities and shine brightly in a rapidly changing world.
I am delighted to welcome you and your family, and so pleased that you’re spending a little time getting to know us!
Nicky Phillips, Headteacher
