What the school says...

Kirkham St. Michael's Church of England School has a proud tradition of offering children a good education in a happy and stimulating environment. In March 2014 our latest Ofsted inspection determined that we are a 'good' school. We work in close partnership with parents, the local community and members of St. Michael's Parish. Our mission statement, Following Jesus Together, Learning, Growing and Living, underpins all that we undertake and we believe that by working and praying together we can develop a caring, learning community.
Our expectations and vision for our school include:-
High standards and achievement where we aim for all our children to make good progress and achieve their potential.
High quality teaching and learning where our hard working and dedicated staff provide a relevant and purposeful curriculum which respects and develops the individual interests, abilities and talents of our children; and where children are excited and engaged in their learning.
A high performing team where children enjoy school; where staff work together and have the appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding to deliver high quality education; where parents are engaged and involved in their child's learning and education and are ambassadors in the community; where the Governors, working closely with the Headteacher, provide the strategic direction for our school and where the Local Authority and Diocese support and challenge all we do.
A high quality learning and working environment which is safe and well-maintained; which is bright and stimulating; which includes high quality resources; which has a rural setting within the centre of Kirkham and extensive grounds.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
