Mr G Johnston - Headteacher
Welcome to our amazing Primary School! We are so proud of our school, our pupils and all they achieve. Our motto - 'achieving and growing together' really sums up what we are about at St Michael's and what a special place it is in which to work and learn.
We hope our website will give you a window into the life of our school, provide you with the information that you need and promote a supportive partnership between home and school, which is so vital to your child’s happiness, well-being and their educational progress.
Head Teacher's Welcome
Our children are at the heart of all we do here at St Michael’s.
We aim to work with you and your child to provide the best education we can, within a caring and loving environment; an environment in which your child can grow as a whole person and develop the Christian values of friendship, koinonia (fellowship), compassion, forgiveness, trust, wisdom, thankfulness, humility, endurance, service, peace, justice, hope and creation.
As a Church school we enjoy strong links with our local parish Church, St. Michael’s, and the Diocese of Durham and Newcastle. Together we believe that the teachings of a Christian faith are as relevant today, if not more so than ever before. This underpins our distinctive ethos and what we teach, how we worship and how we live.

Yesterday in Forest School we were looking at different kinds of trees, we then identified them by their leaves. Once we moved the leaves that had fallen we found bugs and insects, so we then went on a bug hunt. Finally we made bark rubbings from the different trees.
Here are some great pictures of our Griffins making their very own pirate sandwiches during DT week. They had so much fun making them, but enjoyed eating them even more!
The Phoenix class have been designing a steady hand game in DT. To make these we have been using electrical circuits that we had researched in science lessons, we also used a range of tools to construct our game techniques.
In Forest School this week we were... Celebrating with hot chocolate and biscuits since it was our last one of the half term. We looked at different country's masks for celebrations and tried to recreate our own using natural resources. What great fun we had!
Here are some pictures of our amazing unicorn class taking part in DT week; filling and emptying containers, practising our cutting skills and exploring texture with spaghetti. We also had lots of fun singing and dancing with Mrs Nicklen.
