St Michael's C of E Academy and Nursery

St Michael’s is a brand new academy in the heart of Paignton, which opened in September 2021 to nursery and reception children as a one form entry primary academy, growing by year group annually until Year 6.

Working in close partnership with our community, we passionately believe that every child should be taught by expert, high quality teachers in an inspirational academy that always puts children first. We will achieve this by having the highest expectations of ourselves and our children – enriching the lives of the children, the families and the community that we serve.

St Michael’s will build on the success of the Learning Academy Partnership’s current academies, achieving academic excellence within a caring and inspirational curriculum.  As a Church of England academy, St Michael’s will also be part of the wider diocesan family of schools, set within a distinctively Christian context, inclusive of children of all faiths and of none.

We very much see ourselves as a family who, with our parents, parish and wider community, work together to ensure the very best for each and every child. In doing this, we strive to enable all children to achieve their potential in all areas of their learning – intellectual, emotional, physical, social, moral, spiritual and cultural – through our engaging and aspirational curriculum.
