Hooray….!  The school will be OPEN tomorrow, Thursday 14th December 2017. The snow has already melted a lot although there is a lot of water running across the roads and some large puddles. Mr Crocker has driven down to the main road at Vowchurch and the road is fully passable but with care because of the running water.

Please bring any Colorfoto orders to school by 9:00am on Thursday 14th morning.

Please also bring any outstanding lunch orders by 9:00am tomorrow (Thursday 14th Dec).

The whole school will be visiting the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford on Thursday 14th December to see a performance of Sleeping Beauty.  The performance starts at 2pm. We will be leaving from school after lunch and will be back by approx 5.15pm.

The walking nativity will be re-scheduled for Friday 15th December at 5:00pm.

 Thank you again for your understanding with the closures and sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Michaelchurch Escley Primary School is a dynamic, rural school proud of its supportive ethos and its beautiful surroundings in the foothills of the Black Mountains.

For many years now, Michaelchurch has held the belief in a happy childhood at its core. We do this because we believe that children who feel safe, comfortable and valued have a natural inclination to explore – and thus to learn. Michaelchurch has a strong and vibrant community of children, staff and parents.

We try to ensure that whilst at Michaelchurch, every child – whatever their background or level of need – has the opportunity to explore learning and enjoy their education. We aim to provide children with the academic and functional skills the world requires through active learning via topic-based teaching using the International Primary Curriculum and with lots of use of the outdoor classroom. We believe this approach not only supports children to reach their key educational milestones, but also encourages them to actively explore their world and to think and act creatively. We also support individualised learning through our Flexi-school Programme, that enables families to more actively participate in their child’s learning Mondays and/or Fridays – with regular guidance and feedback from teachers.

You are most welcome to come and see our school for yourselves. To arrange a visit contact admin@michaelchurch-escley.hereford.sch.uk, call 01981 510 208 or click here for a list of Open Days and events.
