Welcome to St Margaret’s CE Primary School.
At St Margaret's, we believe that children grow and learn in a safe, happy and stimulating environment; a place where they are valued as individuals, encouraged to grow in self-esteem and given every opportunity to flourish and reach their potential.
At the heart of our school is our Christian faith which guides our daily life. As we foster respect for one another and our environment and develop tolerance and understanding for the cultural diversity of the world in which we live, we seek to lay the Christian foundations from which children can grow into caring and responsible adults in society.
We value the partnership between home and school. By working closely with parents and carers we aim to nurture a love of learning, a wonder of God's creation and a readiness for the challenges ahead.
As an educationally-inclusive school St Margaret’s is one in which the teaching and learning achievements, attitudes and well being of every child and adult matters. We take practical steps to promote tolerance and understanding of diversity, thus preparing the child for life in a multi-cultural society.
This is more than a concern about any one group of children. Its scope is broad. It is about equal opportunities for all children whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. It pays particular attention to the provision made for and the achievement of different groups of children within a school, such as:
- Boys and girls
- Minority ethnic and faith groups
- Children who need support to learn English as an additional language
- Children with special educational needs including physical disability
- Gifted and talented children
- Children “looked after” by the local authority
- Children of differing age – e.g. summer born children
- Children with differing learning styles
