St Margaret's delivers its school curriculum, which includes the National Curriculum, through subject specific and thematic approaches.  We call it our LION CURRICULUM.

We have assessed our curriculum against the NCSL's Hallmarks of an Outstanding Curriculum: SELF-ASSESSMENT

The school's LION CURRICULUM delivers our school's Vision and Mission.

Our Curriculum is as ambitious as the National Curriculum.  The National Curriculum can ve viewed here: NATIONAL CURRICULUM (in pdf format).  Each unit is personalised to our local context.

Our School Curriculum ensures that there is a sequenced progressional gaining of knowledge in Vocabulary', 'People, Places and Events', 'Concepts' and 'Procedures'.  These are shown in our teacher designed KNOWLEDGE BOARDS (pdf format). The coverage of the National Curriculum within our broader, richer and deeper personalised School Curriculum can also be viewed in these documents.
