Knowledge of Learning
Apart from home, school is the single most important place in the lives of most children and it is the place where memories are made.
A child’s experience of school plays a vital part in their lives and will determine their academic, social and, probably, future employment. It is the role of our school to develop the whole child and we do this through faith formation and a curriculum that enhances experiences.
St Margaret Mary has an extending school day - our children benefit from a knowledge based curriculum where various foundation subjects are delivered by subject specialists. Here we promote the arts and dance and drama are delivered to all classes.
As a Catholic school, we see it as our duty to promote, enhance and develop every child’s God given talents. We are dedicated to the holistic development of each child and we do this through providing a vast array of learning experiences both in and beyond the classroom.
These experiences range from working with employers and professionals from the local area to performing Shakespeare at The Theatre by the Lake. It is the aim of our school to provide our children with the same opportunities and quality of education as that of any child in the country. Our key principles are: Knowledge, Prayer, Service and Aspiration and these form the backbone to everything that our dedicated staff do.
Our children get various opportunities to develop their knowledge beyond the classroom - they are given the opportunity to visit museums, galleries, theatres, castles and even touring shows . Moreover, we have religious retreats and residential weekends throughout Key Stage 2 – the aim of these are to develop all aspects of the child whilst providing valuable learning opportunities.
St Margaret Mary School is a place where children grow and blossom, they develop personality and confidence, and opportunities are provided no matter their age or background. We continue to be thankful to every child, member of staff and indeed, parents, who continue to support us on this journey.
