Coningsby St. Michael’s C of E Primary School
Welcome to Coningsby St Michael’s Church of England Primary School!
Coningsby St. Michael’s C of E Primary School is a caring and inclusive school where every child is nurtured and valued. We aim to develop whole individuals and promote independent learning. Our topic approach to teaching ensures entitlement for all children to an enriched learning experience, appropriate to their individual needs.
The Church School values we teach the children are the foundations to our school and underpin our curriculum. The values we are learning about this year are: Forgiveness; Trust; Thankfulness; Hope; Friendship and Peace. We teach the children values for life through these and make links to bible stories and SEAL themes, to enable our children to make choices and decisions, both in and out of school.
Teachers strive to create purposeful and stimulating learning environments, both inside the classroom and by using our generous school grounds. The curriculum is enhanced through a range of visitors into school and a variety of trips throughout the year, as well as a range of extra-curricular activities.
I aim to offer all the children who come to Coningsby St. Michael’s C of E Primary School opportunities to help them learn new skills and develop in areas of interest and enjoyment. All achievements are celebrated enthusiastically and parents are encouraged to share these with us.
School should be an exciting experience, enjoyed and remembered. All members of staff at our wonderful school are committed to delivering a rounded and academically excellent primary education for all of our children – an experience they will recall with pride and affection for the rest of their lives.

This our first year working together with HMS Heroes. We have approximately 115 pupils who are Service Children with their parent/s mainly working at RAF Coningsby. Like other Service Children, some of our pupils will experience the issues that impact upon a child who has a parent or caregiver serving in the Armed Services. They will experience a parent being absent for several months due to deployment, they will experience school and home moves due to postings and they will leave behind their best friends or see their best friends move on. The staff at Coningsby St. Michael’s CofE PS are aware of how these issues can impact upon a child’s learning and we aim to support each child when these issues arise. We also take part in activities throughout the year which celebrate our Service Children, their familes and the Armed Services; we take part in activities that promote awareness of the needs of Service Children and activities which connect our pupils to the wider Service community.
