Key Areas of Responsibility
Purpose and Identity of the School
in Catholic Education
St Mary and St Michael Catholic Primary School is a much loved, successful school in the heart of Tower Hamlets. We currently have 425 children on roll coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, reflecting the borough’s multi-ethnic communities. Our communities are set in one of the poorest parts of London and so it is important that we provide a platform for our young children to explore the world and to aspire to their full potential. Our school is a happy vibrant place with an ethos of respect and tolerance. Our school has very strong links within the Parish with St Mary & St Michael’s Church right next to the school.
St Mary and St Michael is a warm, welcoming and secure place for children to begin their school life. Our child-centred approach is underpinned by our core values of Compassion, Collaboration, Perseverance, Respect and Self Worth. We seek to inspire in every pupil a love of learning through a wide and balanced curriculum, specialised teaching, music, school trips and underpinning these is our understanding of religious life and the gospel values so that all children feel a valued member of God’s family. The school has a strong Catholic ethos and is at the heart of everything we do and believe in.
One of our strengths is our teacher and support staff, which has been stable and supportive, putting the children first in every way. Our last Ofsted rating was good with elements of outstanding which is down to the dedication of all our staff.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
