St Michael’s Playden CE Primary School

Love – Honesty – Forgiveness – Respect

From September 2023 St Michael’s has a new leadership team. Mrs Smart, Mr Thurston, Mrs Bulgin and all the team here at St Michael’s would like to extend a warm welcome to you all and hope that your association with the school is a long and happy one. We work closely together with the children and community of St. Michael’s to create an environment which provides the very best  opportunities for all our learners.

St. Michael’s has a well-established caring ethos founded on our Christian values of Love, Honesty, Forgiveness & Respect, where every member of our school is valued as an individual, enriching the happy, caring environment which we strive to create. This contributes to the wonderful family feel to our school and the smiling faces and laughter you hear when you visit us, along with excellent work in every part of the school is a testament to this.

Our vision at St. Michael’s is that every child receives an excellent education and feels valued for who they are. We want to lay a foundation of curiosity, tapping into children’s natural inquisitiveness about the world around them, and to foster their ambition by recognising and responding to their talents and individuality. We seek to treat everyone in our community with love, honesty, forgiveness and respect, rooted in the principle of ‘do to others as you would have them do to you’ (Luke 6:31).
