St Margaret's CEVA Primary School

Transforming lives by living and learning together in God's love

Value & Ethos

A warm welcome from our Head Teacher, Canon Jo Gunn

Welcome to St Margaret’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School. Our school vision is:


Transforming lives by living and learning together in God's love


At St Margaret’s CEVA 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 a caring and supportive environment which prepares our pupils as confident learners. Visitors often comment on the happy and informal atmosphere in the school, which leads to a community spirit and high engagement with learning. The children have their own vision statement which is in every classroom 'Live, Love, Learn'.


Recognising its historic foundation, the school strives to 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. Our daily work is underpinned by the following verse which recognises that Christ is at the centre of all that we do.


Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


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.
