  • 2Gether sessions - Working with parents and carers is an intrinsic part of our school philosophy, we aim for everyone in the school community to feel a significant part of our school and we aim to get out and work with the local community on a regular basis. 2Gether sessions allow parents and carers to come into school and work with the children to gain a better understanding of teaching and learning which we hope will adults undertsand how better to support their child. What the parents say; "It's great to see what my child is doing in the classroom." "Always very enjoyable sessions, a really good idea for parents.."

  • Eastgate Manor; a local newly built care home. We have established good links with the home, and three lucky children won the chance to name one of the 3 suites in the building. We visit the residents each term and perform songs and this Easter we will be having an easter egg hunt.

  • Cherryburn; Our Creative Partnerships project has seen the children learning about our community and heritage. The pupils regularly visit Cherryburn for various activities.  This year we will be working with Cherryburn over the summer to learn more about bees.  The children will have the chance to see a real bee hive and learn about how we can support bees through our gardening activities.

  • St. George's Church; We have Reverend Bill Rigby coming into school each half term and we also visit St. George's as part of our Creative Partnerships project, through which the children are learning about our local community and how it developed over the last 1000 years. We hope to maintain a strong link with participation of staff and pupils in important aspects of the church calendar.

  • Last year we planted flowers in the village along with members of the local community in commemoration of WWI, after the sucess of the project we would like to do something similar in the future.

  • Since 2013 we have organised a Pupil Voice Conference for members of our school council to attend at the Fuse.  Six children from each partnership school attend and then they come back to school to share their experiences.  This year they will be covering environmental topics.

  • Mickley regularly gets involved in sports competitions with other local schools, sports include Rugby, Gymnastics, Football and Athletics.
