Inspiring and Empowering People

On behalf of the whole school community I am delighted to welcome you to St. Michael's Primary School.

At our school we strive to provide an inspiring, supportive and aspirational environment built on Christian values. We want our children to have an equal chance to become happy, responsible, highly skilled individuals who can contribute positively to and shape the world they live in.

We believe passionately in the importance of a broad, engaging curriculum and learning outside the classroom.

We have worked hard to create a learning, growth mind set culture that expects the whole school community to challenge themselves, take risks and be innovative.

Please do visit the school if you want to find out more. If you are a prospective parent we look forward to a happy association with you and your children.

Mrs L Dale

Information about School Closures

Hertfordshire have a new Schools Closure Notification System. All parents will need to sign up to this system to ensure that in the event of school having to close (which is very rare!), we can get the message out quickly to our families. This will replace any previous similar notification systems.

Registration is very simple, just click on the link below and go to ‘sign up’.

Hertfordshire County Council's School Closure Notification system

You will need to click on ‘sign up’ on the right hand side of the page, at the top. From there, follow the instructions given. It should take no more than 5 minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time should you change your mobile number or email address.
