A little more about us...

St Michael’s Primary School is a friendly, caring church school set in the suburban area of Welling, Kent. The school was originally built in 1938 to serve the growing parish of East Wickham and local population of the expanding ‘Steven’s’ housing estate. The school is unusual in that it has it is set adjacent to a park with the main entrance inside the park itself. However we are also fortunate to have our own playing field, with a shaded picnic area and a nature garden.


St Michael’s is a one form entry Primary School with a Reception class, two infant and four junior classes. Access to the school is controlled by added security measures. Access for the disabled is good, with ramps and a lift to the first floor. There have been many changes over the years to the fabric and structure of the school in an effort to provide a pleasant and safe learning environment for the children in our care, such as the installation of updated interactive boards and new air-conditioning in the junior classrooms and a new library.

I am proud of the reputation that has been established for the excellent standards in both learning and pupil behaviour. The strength of the school lies in the creation of a caring, Christian family atmosphere, in which each child parent and staff member is valued for what they can contribute to this established community. The school welcomes families and children from ethnic and minority backgrounds to play their part in developing a rich, diverse cultural heritage in the school.


A good school is more than just reading the findings of reports and results. At St Michael’s we have a dedicated team of hard working professionals and volunteers who work together for the benefit of the children. This team spirit translates into the caring community and a warm friendly atmosphere, where everyone is seeking to play their part to improve the quality of education on offer.


The school has a variety of after school clubs and has a proud reputation for its achievements in the field of cricket, football and swimming. Music, Art and Drama also feature as strong areas which we encourage in the curriculum.


Our school is supported by a thriving PTA that not only raises large amounts of money for additional resources, as well as creating opportunities for families to socialise.


The School Governing Body is composed from representatives of the church, both Diocese and Parish, elected parents and staff. This body of people bring diverse talents to work collectively for the improvement of our school.
