Welcome to our school.
Thank you for taking time to visit our school website. Here, at St. Michael's on Wyre Church of England Primary School and Nursery, we aim to provide children with a safe, stimulating educational environment, with our core Christian values providing a foundation for all that we do.
St. Michael’s on Wyre is a relatively small school, of approximately 120 pupils, in a rural village location. The school is of Voluntary Aided status, having close links with St. Michael’s on Wyre Church and being integral to the community life of the village and surrounding area.
The school comprises of 5 classes, with 6 teaching staff, 3 of whom are part-time, plus the headteacher. The school benefits from employing highly skilled and experienced teaching assistants, both to support pupils with SEN, implement intervention programmes and to generally assist teaching staff. There is also an administrator, site-supervisor and kitchen/welfare staff, who contribute to the close-knit, effective staff team. The school fosters a caring, positive educational environment, promoting high standards, based upon Christian principles.
We are fortunate to have a small, friendly nursery on site, led by experienced staff. The nursery is located next door to reception class and the team work closely together to ensure the children experience a range of teaching and learning opportunities. We are registered for 30 hours funded childcare and Tax Free childcare. We welcome visitors to school at any time of day and always look forward to meeting new families.
The school’s last Ofsted Inspection, in March 2009, was extremely positive, grading the school as ‘outstanding in all areas’. This was echoed by the most recent SIAMS inspection (June 2014). The school strives to maintain these standards, continuing to develop further, to provide a high quality of education for all of the children in its care.
This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community. We welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life. Your help and support play a vital part in the education of your child. We are always happy to talk to you about your child's achievements and progress.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
