Welcome to St. Michael's Church of England Primary School, Bamford
Children attend our school from 8.55am to 3.30pm each day. This amounts to a typical school week of 32 hours and 55 minutes. Included in this time is an hour for lunch each day and 15 minutes morning playtime. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children also have a 15 minute break in the afternoon.
Here at St. Michael’s we are dedicated to providing the highest quality learning in a happy, secure environment where we value everyone as unique individuals within a caring, Christian ethos. Our pupils are proud to belong. They demonstrate enthusiasm and eagerness to involve themselves in every aspect of school life and are keen to make the most of every learning opportunity. Children have high aspirations for themselves and for each other, and move on to high school well prepared for further learning challenges.

What our parents say...(Parent Questionnaire April 2023- If someone asked me about St Michael's I would tell them...)
St Michael’s is a small friendly school, with teachers who work hard to get to know each child.
St Michael’s is an excellent school that accepts children of all backgrounds, whatever their abilities are. The teachers encourage the children to help them reach their maximum potential whilst helping identify any difficulties. We’ve had amazing support from the head teacher for our child and they wouldn’t have progressed as far as they have without this support.
What a wonderful, supportive and encouraging school it is.
That it is a great school and would recommend it to anyone. We are looking to send our Daughter here too when she is old enough.
The school feels like a friendly community and has a strong academic focus on results.
It's a great school where children excel and do really well academically. I've seen my children grow and become confident learners as they've progressed through the school. I've been pleased with the school's respectful approach to other faiths. Staff have been very understanding and accommodating of my children during the month of Ramadan.
My 3 children have all thrived at St Michaels, I feel it has given them an amazing grounding in both education and personal and social skills which my older 2 have carried through to high school and I'm confident my youngest will too. I would not hesitate to recommend this school.

Communication between the teachers, pupils and parents is excellent. My children have been happy and made some lovely friends. If any problems have arisen they have been dealt with swiftly and positively. The staff go above and beyond for the children because they truly care. It is a safe, clean environment, where teachers encourage and challenge the children to achieve their best without pressure but through positive encouragement.
