Letter from Headteacher & Chair of Governors:

Dear Parents and Carers

As you will know, the school was inspected by OFSTED before half term.
Today we received the final report letter and a copy is available above.
The school is extremely pleased that the inspector recognised the many strengths and characteristics we too hold as important and that they shared the same view of the school as its leadership.
Some phrases from the report that the school sees as significant include:
- ‘you have established a genuine learning culture’
- ‘Rigorous self-evaluation is a strength of leadership and governance’
- ‘Pupils are proud of their school.’
- ‘Parents have great confidence in the leadership of the school and were fulsome in their praise of the school’s work’
- ‘the school is doing a very effective job in preparing pupils for life in modern Britain’


The Home and School Agreement found in every child’s planner, clearly sets out the expectations for pupils, parents and the school in how we can best work together to ensure that our children achieve an exciting, impactful  education and enjoy their time at St Margaret’s.

The most important part of this agreement focuses how we can support our children in getting the most from the first part of their learning journey.

This means the best way to achieve success is for all of us to collaborate in supporting our children in their learning and prepare them for the future and their lives beyond St Margaret’s.

We now have access to programs that give our children more opportunities to develop their learning outside the classroom. Parent’s can support their child’s learning by making sure the programs are used regularly at home.

We would like to ask you to consider these three simple steps to support us in ensuring all our pupils are able to…Step Up to Success!

1. Step up reading

2. Step up maths

3. Step up ...with homework

Use our online STEP UP TOOLS.  All available from our Learn Online website page.
