Justice and Responsibility

At St Michael's, our theologically rooted Christian vision plays a pivotal role in fostering an active culture of justice and responsibility. It is not just a statement but a call to action, inspiring us to make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

Through this culture, we cultivate a spirit of justice and encourage courageous advocacy, empowering our pupils to make ethical choices and become agents of positive change within our community. Our partnerships, stemming from our Christian vision, are crucial as they positively impact and reciprocally enhance the lives of all individuals involved.

Birmingham Hospice

We have a strong partnership with Birmingham Hospice and we are proud to support them as part of our commitment to living out our vision and values of courage, hope, love, forgiveness, trust, community, and thankfulness.

By partnering with Birmingham Hospice, we aim to make a meaningful difference in our community and demonstrate our dedication to supporting others in need. Through this collaboration, we seek to instil in our pupils the importance of compassion, empathy, and social responsibility, fostering a culture of kindness and support for those facing challenging circumstances. Together, we are working towards creating a more caring and inclusive environment where everyone has the opportunity to flourish and thrive.

Bunny Hop

We recently participated in the Bunny Hop fundraiser, where pupils and staff had to hop around the playground as many times as they could whilst wearing bunny ears!

Through our collective efforts, we successfully raised a total of £2,006.90 to contribute towards the invaluable work of the hospice in our community. We had a special assembly where we were presented with a large cheque which indicated the amount of money we raised.

This is how our money is spent to help those in need:

Our Chosen Year Group Charities for 2023-2024

At St Michael's we also support multiple charities through running different events throughout the year. Each year group has chosen an individual charity that they will support this year.

The charity service all the residents within the catchment area and they do not require vouchers or referrals. They also have a new freezer so can collect fresh, chilled and frozen meat. The charity also supply feminine hygiene products under Period Poverty and also pet and baby food.
