St Michael's Church of England Primary School

Enabling every child to flourish in their potential as a child of God.

Uniform

The school takes a great pride in its school uniform and all children are expected to observe it. Staff and Governors ask for parents’ co-operation in carrying out the school uniform policy. All clothing and other items (e.g. bags, lunchboxes, etc.) must be clearly labelled with the child’s name.

School Houses

The school is organised into four different houses. When your child enters the school, they will be placed in a house. Our houses are named after people who were of significant interest in 1871, the year our school was founded.

Wright (blue)

Named after the American, brother pioneer aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright being born in 1871. The brothers are credited with inventing and building the World’s first successful aeroplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight in December 1903.

Nightingale (red)

Named after the nurse, Florence Nightingale, who did such pioneering work with wounded soldiers in the Crimean War and the Franco-Prussian war, which ended in 1871.

Livingstone (green)

Named after the famous Victorian explorer David Livingstone who was found in 1871 by fellow explorer Stanley after having been considered lost and presumed dead in Africa.

Patteson (yellow)

Named after Bishop John Coleridge Patteson, a missionary in the Polynesian islands who was killed in 1871 having being mistaken by native islanders as a slave trader. Having realised their mistake, they accorded a traditional island ‘burial’ to Bishop Patteson setting his body in a canoe to return to his ship. The islanders subsequently established a very devout Christian community.

Every year house captains get chosen from the Year 6 class. Their duties include setting up the school hall between 8.45 and 8.55 am and helping during special event days as well as helping at the end of dinnertime. They are also responsible for collecting house points from the classes on a Friday and announcing the weekly winners during assembly.

All children can earn house points through general good behaviour and good deeds throughout the week; the winning house is awarded the shield at the end of each week.

We encourage healthy competition at events such as inter-house spellathons, our annual sports days and interschool sport challenges, e.g. speed bouncing or skipping.
