Welcome to St. Michael's Church of England Primary School, Bamford

  Good Morning Everyone,

We have been awarded funding for a new central heating system that will be fitted over the summer break, so we will close completely for summer.

We reopen for children on Thursday 3rd September when we will welcome everyone back to school at staggered start and finish times. Please help reduce contact and maximise distancing on the playgrounds by staying off the playground until 2 minutes before your child's start time. We will have the same one way system of access/exit gates.

8.55am   3.25pm   Children with surnames beginning  A, B, C, D, E, F

9.00am   3.30pm   Children with surnames beginning  G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P

9.05am   3.35pm   Children with surnames beginning  Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

For children with different surnames living at the same address, the earliest surname will apply in order to prevent you having to wait in the playground.

I will email parents to confirm September opening arrangements after 19th August when the Governing Board will meet again for a final evaluation of plans which will take into account any national or local information and advice at that point. I will then also post an update here.

I hope that you all have a lovely summer, and stay safe and well until we return to school. Year 6 - we wish you well. We will miss you all but we know that you are ready for new challenges!

Take care,

Mrs Barratt

At St. Michael’s every child is enveloped in a warm, safe, Christian embrace. We face our challenges together and enjoy our educational adventure. We believe and trust in each other. Our children shine brightly. High expectations, endless encouragement and quality teaching enable us all to believe in and aspire to reaching our full potential in every way. Children leave St. Michael’s knowing that with effort, commitment, engagement and self-belief they are ready to spread their wings and fly.

Here at St. Michael’s we are dedicated to providing the highest quality learning in a happy, secure environment where we value everyone as unique individuals within a caring, Christian ethos.

Our pupils are proud to belong. They demonstrate enthusiasm and eagerness to involve themselves in every aspect of school life and are keen to make the most of every learning opportunity; whether representing school extensively in a variety of sporting competitions, as member of our highly regarded school choir, on a variety of inspiring educational visits, in lessons or when taking on a role of responsibility in school.

Our children have high aspirations for themselves and for each other. They move on to high school ready for further learning challenges, knowing that with effort, commitment, engagement and enthusiasm they can spread their wings and fly!

If you would like to visit our school to find out more, you are most welcome to make an appointment with the school office staff, Mrs Redfern or Mrs Abbott,  on 01706 369339.
