We are so diverse, yet each one of us is precious in your eyes and you have faith in us. All our gifts and talents and all that we achieve in life, comes from you. May we always use what you have given us wisely and fairly so that we can really shine both at school and in the wider world.

We may face issues and problems in life, but we are never alone when we invite you in. We humbly ask you to help grow our spirits, plant the seeds of faith in our hearts and water them with traits of love, so that our St Michaels community will bloom, achieving your glory. AMEN Striving for excellence in all that we do Recognition that each and every child is made in the image and likeness of Christ and blessed with unique God-given talents which must be nurtured Striving to meet the individual needs and aspirations of each and every child, whatever their ability and

based on the progress pupils make rather than just their attainment. This is based on their best 8 GCSE outcomes. Progress 8 has a floor of -0.5 St Michael's 2018 progress 8 score is yet to be ratified by the DFE but we expect are currently demonstrating 0.32 which is above average.

From this we know pupils made good progress at our school from their KS2 Outcomes. THE ST MICHAELS APPROACH TO KEY STAGE 3 Our KS3 Curriculum is built around the idea of the big 5 These are the big 5 skills pupils need to master to be GCSE ready.
