Primary School

Learning, achieving, working together


Welcome to

Micklem Primary School!

On behalf of our staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Micklem, a school where every child is loved, respected and welcomed.


At Micklem, we put the whole-child at the centre of everything we do, and have High Hopes of supporting and developing the next generation to be world-changers.   We believe that every child has the right to find something that they can be successful at, and so have an emphasis on giving all children opportunities to discover new sports, play musical instruments, cook delicious treats and much much more.  Reading is a priority in our school, and our new library is brimming with exhilarating reads to engage readers of all ages, with different interests.


I am so excited for what the future holds for this school and its families.  We have a committed and driven staff team who are eager to build relationships and make a difference.  Our staff are determined to provide all children with an engaging and inspiring curriculum that encourages learning at all levels.  We look to build opportunities to learn outside wherever possible and feel that we foster an environment where learning is engaging and fun.


At Micklem we have three core rules that are the foundations of everything we do and how we expect all members of our school community to behave.  These are our 'Rules For Life' and we believe that these extend beyond the classroom and the school gates.  All stakeholders in our school are expected to:


  • Be Kind.
  • Show Respect.
  • Aim High.


Our practice is underpinned by several key ideas:


  • Every child can learn - we support this with our five learning powers: co-operation, perseverance, reflectiveness, resilience and resourcefulness.
  • No Outsiders - everyone belongs in our school no matter their background - we respect everyone.
  • Family support - we know that things can be hard (especially given the last couple of years) and look to support all of our families in a variety of ways.
  • Learning can take place anywhere - our trips and Forest School are testament to the fact that sometimes children learn better in an environment outside of the classroom.
  • Nurturing ethos - we look to support children to understand their difficulties and emotions, enabling them to manage these moving forward.
  • High Hopes - At Micklem, we have High Hopes for all of our children and are driven to support them in being successful now and in the future.


I am eager to work with you moving forward and would be happy to discuss our school further if you are looking to learn more or are considering our school for your child.  In that case, please contact the school office on 01442408964 or email us at

I look forward to seeing you soon.


Be Kind. Show Respect.  Aim High.

Mr. Swift
