At St. Michael’s we are delighted to have such a competent and loyal team of staff. Those who work at St. Michael’s are dedicated to help the children in terms of social, pastoral and educational support and they are committed to help the children to flourish and be the best they can be. The teaching staff are the main point of contact for parents and below is an overview of the staff.
Our school has a total of fourteen governors all of whom act in a voluntary capacity:

Minutes from meetings of the Governing Body are a public record and can obtained from the Clerk or may be viewed in school - please ask the Business Manager. The minutes of the most recent meetings can be accessed below (please click on relevant date). Note that some minutes may be in draft and subject to amendment when presented for approval at the next Governors' meeting:
As a Church (aided) School, we have a responsibility for maintaining and improving our school buildings and we are helped with a grant from the Government for 90% of the costs. This means that we have to contribute 10% ourselves. We do this by asking all parents to contribute to the "Governors' Fund" each year. A leaflet about the Fund can be seen here.
Arrangements are in place for you to pay by monthly direct debit to make it far easier to ensure that payments don't get forgotten and spread the cost over the whole year – which works out at just £2.50 per month per child. You can of course still pay via ParentPay or by cash/cheque at the school office.
To set up a direct debit, please use this link to our payment partner, "GoCardless":
(click link or copy and paste into your browser) and complete the on-line form. It is very easy and straightforward. It would be a great help to the school/governors if you could also complete the slip from the leaflet and return it to school.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘St Michael’s Governors’ Fund’ and placed in clearly labelled envelopes with the payment slip / Gift aid declaration from the leaflet.
