St. Margaret’s Church of England Primary School
This is a Church Aided school with provision for a Christian contribution to the life and ethos of the school while following the national curriculum. This is a one-form entry school with nursery provision. Children come from many backgrounds and a variety of faiths and none, although everyone has to accept the Christian basis and ethos of the school. Children who attend St. Margaret’s Church have a special call upon school places, as do those with particular needs and other church or religious involvement. Worship takes place in school and the older children also have special services at Church. Each year group has a planned series of visits and activities at Church during the year.
