At St. Michael's our ambition is to provide an increased range of physical opportunities that our children can enjoy throughout the school day and sign post them to community activity and celebrate activity as seen in a fit and healthy lifestyle. We utilised the chief medical officer’s recommendation of the 60 active minutes per day as a catalyst to invoke change across our school.

We have active lunchtimes, exciting after school activities and sports and a wide range of competitive opportunities. We celebrate childrens’ achievements in community clubs.

We strive to help children from our school follow a fit and healthy lifestyle which they can take into adulthood.

We also had the amazing news of the awarding of the Sainsbury Platinum school mark to St.Michaels.
