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. 


Releasing potential to create a positive future for all

At St Michael’s we each use our unique potential to flourish personally, socially, spiritually and academically. Positive relationships, high expectations, engagement in learning and effort prepare us for a bright future.

Our Christian vision is rooted in:

'We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works' 

Ephesians 2:10


Here at St. Michael’s we are dedicated to providing the highest quality learning in a happy, secure environment. We value everyone as a unique individual within a caring, Christian ethos and our high expectations ensure that we each use our potential to flourish in every way. 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. To see how our children describe our school you can read their views from the annual pupil questionnaire under School Information > Our Feedback.

We are delighted that our Ofsted Inspection on 8 and 9 May 2024 judged St Michael's to be Outstanding in all areas. You can find the full report by clicking on the file link below.
