On behalf of the children and staff, our Head Boy, Head Girl and the Executive Team; Mr Boyle as Head of School and myself as Executive Headteacher, would like to extend a warm welcome to our school's website.
St Margaret's School is a large two form entry primary school built on our long established Christian foundation through St Margaret's and All Hallows Church. As a result of a largely new purpose built school building we are pleased to accommodate all our children onto a single main school site. In addition we run a professional training and evangelical SMILE Centre.
Our school strives to give our children the very best opportunties, informed through our school vision 'Care, Challenge and Celebrate with Christ' and delivered through our mission where by we apply the biblical phrase from Deuteronomy 'Therefore, choose'. More details about this on our vision and mission pages of this websute.
With over 480 children on roll and a talented staff team of around fifty hard working staff we aim to give our children the very best quality of curriculum, teaching, provision and opportunity.
We have an experienced Governing Body who, based on evaluation, support and challenge senior leaders for our school aims to be realised. We are grateful for the time and effort they consistently provide in this role,
Involving families is key to children's education and this is supported through our Parent Forum and our Friends Association. Come along and meet them at the Friday Cafe (starts at 9.00 in the Family Room off the Car Park).
The school runs a maintained Nursery for 3year olds and above on site and a free daily breakfast club for KS2 pupils. It works in collaboration with a 6 month+ Nursery on the SMILE site for wrap around care and breakfast club for younger children. We offer various after school activities.
I hope you find the information on this website useful whether you are a current parent looking for information or new parent looking for the right school for your child. The prospectus will give you a 'snapshot' of school life here at St Margaret's Church School as well as other helpful information.
