Our Values and Collective Worship
Foundation values and Collective Worship
Our Foundation Values are central to the mission of the school and underpin our Collective worship. Each half term we break down these values into weekly thoughts and prayers, drawing inspiration from the relevant bible reading.
Our school church services follow the liturgical calendar and our school values.
Harvest Festival, All Saints Day, St Michael's Day, Easter, Ascension Day and others.

We actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, respect for individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
We not only provide children with a broad general knowledge of the way the democratic system in Great Britain functions, but we give them opportunities to take an active part in the decision-making process in school by using the democratic process of voting and representation.
At St Michael's, these values are reinforced in the following ways.
Once a year, children will perform in a class assembly. This usually takes place on Fridays at 2:30 pm and parents are invited to attend. Children work with their class teacher to present a story, song, dance and prayer linked to their current learning. Please see the school calendar to find out when your child's next class assembly will take place.
Every Friday we have a 'Celebration' Assembly. Prior to the assembly, teachers select two children per class who have worked extremely hard and/or have achieved greatness throughout the week. During the assembly, these pupils are given a certificate, in which the reason they have been selected for a 'special mention' is shared with the school. Children also share examples of outstanding work with the rest of the school.
Each day, class teachers will take a note of who has reached diamond on the class behaviour chart. They will keep a log of this and at the end of each half term, the children who have been on diamond the most, will be invited to a special celebration with the Head of School.
