Welcome to St Michael's Church in Galleywood, the Church on the Common

  • Christians have been meeting in this church for over 140 years and we still meet each week to worship our Creator God and we hope that you will find peace and joy as you worship with us. 

    During the week there is a variety of groups for different ages and people of different stages along what we sometimes call 'the way' - the lifelong process of discovering who Jesus is and what he wants for each one of us.

    St Michael's Junior School

    Many, many congratulations to St Michael's Junior School on being found by Ofsted to be a Good School - with many features being outstanding. Some quotations from the report:

    "Since [the present headteacher]'s arrival in 2015, her strong conviction and clear vision have created a culture of high expectations. Governors describe her as someone who has made a ‘significant difference to the richness of the school, the driver that was needed’. She quickly identified the key areas needing improvement, including the teaching of English and mathematics. This focus has meant that standards have risen, and the firm foundations that she has established are ready to build on further."

    "The school is a calm and happy place to learn... Pupils have high expectations for behaviour and achievement in the classroom, but also how they conduct themselves around the school. Relationships between pupils and staff are warm and caring. Pupils are very polite, kind and thoughtful. Parents overwhelmingly support and appreciate what the school does for their children. Many comment about the enthusiasm for learning which is actively encouraged and that children are taught with positivity and kindness. Parents can see the results in their children’s improved behaviour towards others and in their learning."

    "Pupils are safe and stay safe."

    "Pupils that I met during the inspection, both in meetings and while visiting the classrooms, were unanimous in their views that they are happy at school and enjoy their learning. They feel safe because the adults care about them and look after them well. One child said, ‘It’s brilliant to be a child in our school.’ If any problems arise between pupils that cannot be sorted out between them, staff soon deal with them in a fair way."

    Congratulations to all the staff and pupils involved!

    In advance of the annual meeting, the Electoral Roll is open to receive additional names, beginning on Sunday 19th March, closing on Sunday 9th April.
