In March 2020 schools closed to the majority of pupils due to a full Lockdown in response to the COVID 19 Pandemic.
School opened to all pupils in September 2020.
Once again schools closed to most pupils in January 2021 due to a further Lockdown.
The staff of St Michael’s responded to this by adapting our curriculum to enable us to address gaps in knowledge and to support the pupils wellbeing as a priority.

Each class teacher has created a ‘Knowledge Mat’ for the children to use and refer to in class for different areas of learning. The knowledge mat contains key vocabulary and memorable facts for the children to learn and use when working in class to improve their work. These are available for parents to use and discuss with their children and to find out more information about our curriculum.
