School Vision and Aims

Vision

Our vision is to have a safe and secure school full of happy and successful children all of whom are encouraged and supported to reach their potential in learning, achievement and personal development.

Underpinned through our Christian community we acknowledge and value that:

  • Every child is unique
  • Children learn best when they are happy, safe and secure
  • Our school community is enriched by diversity
  • It is not who a child is by birth that matters but rather what they make of their life (Non Quis Sed Quid).
  • Personal, social, moral and spiritual development are equally important as academic success

Aims

  • To provide all children with the highest standards of teaching and learning and to instill in them a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning.
  • A commitment to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum in order to develop the whole child to identify and celebrate their individual talents
  • To create strong partnerships between home and school to enable effective learning
  • Through strong pastoral support that pervades everyday school life, children learn the value of empathy and care.
  • Develop in children their spiritual awareness and an understanding of the beliefs of others.
  • Develop each child’s confidence, self-esteem, independence and integrity
  • To equip children with strategies to enable them to achieve a healthy and balanced approach to their wellbeing
  • For all children to be happy and successful
  • To promote a culture of care, respect and traditional values within our school family and the wider community

Our strong and effective leadership and governance will help ensure that the above aims are met.

    “After a lengthy search in West Oxfordshire at numerous other private schools, I found none of them were a patch on St Michael's. They had huge grounds, impressive sporting and drama facilities, however the special family/nurturing feel we've always loved about St Michael's just wasn't there at all. I decided that if we couldn't find a school which measured up to St Michael's, then there was little point in moving, so we stopped the house move and are remaining where we are.”

    - Mrs Falconer, Parent

    “During my time at St Michaels, not only did I really enjoy it, I found that I wasn’t scared to move on and I felt prepared and ready for senior school. I now realise just how much the school gave me and at Senior School, I have found topics that I had already covered or had been hinted to in the lessons at St Michael’s. So I really thank the school and feel grateful for the preparation that I had and now use. ”

    - Francesca Halling, Former Pupil

    “As a former pupil, St. Michael's was the obvious choice. Their values and school ethos have remained the same and Sophia has become a confident, caring and hardworking individual. ”

    - Mrs Lloyd, Former Parent

    “Just wanted to say a big Thank You to all staff and teachers over the last few months. As a full time working Mum I don't know what I would have done without the structure provided each day.”

    - Mrs Homer, Parent

    “..thriving, secure, ‘family feel’ environment where children are positively nurtured as individuals and able to reach their own potential.”

    - Mrs Foy, Parent

    “St. Michael's is a wonderful school. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe haven for their child to grow, learn to be well rounded individuals with the love of God in their hearts and love for all human beings as well as develop academically putting them in a good position ready for the next level of education.”

    - Mrs Balogun, Former Parent

    “St. Michael's is a well organised school with a long track record of academic excellence. The small classes combined with the warmth and positivity of the staff make it a fantastic place to learn, grow and thrive. I loved my time at the school so for me the choice was simple. ”

    - Mrs Grant, Parent and Former Pupil

    “St. Michael's has been on our radar for the last few years following on from various positive conversations with different people about the school, your results and the general atmosphere and approach. With our daughter now turning two, we felt it was a good time to start enquiring and visiting the school. We're so glad we did!”
