Value & Ethos
Welcome to St Margaret’s Church of England Primary School.
Looking to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12 v2
At St Margaret’s Church of England Voluntary Aided School the Christian faith is central to the work of the school and underpins all that we do. Our Christian values are the basis for our teaching and learning, and we provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy learners.
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
