Rooted in scripture, the Eucharist at the Centre
First and foremost, we are proud of our Catholic faith - Christ is central to our daily lives. At St Margaret Mary, children treat others with respect and care, their behaviour towards others is true testament to the Gospel values and a testament to our children’s spiritual, moral and social development. Our school recognises all as children of God and therefore there is an intolerance of discrimination as we recognise each other as a part of the body of Christ.
Visitors to our school comment on how our children positively greet and interact with them and these comments are reinforced by those made in the local community, parish and deanery. Our children’s friendly attitude speaks volumes for our school’s response to developing the whole child.
From the moment visitors enter our school, the Catholic ethos is evident; in classrooms, in the staff room, in the Head’s office and in communal areas. The Catholic identify of our school is very strong. Throughout the school there is clear evidence of our catholicity, this is regularly commented on by visitors. The school corridors are adorned with RE displays showing various things - these range from academic work to examples of our children being witnesses to God. In addition, there are scripture quotes on walls focusing on the importance of Christ’s teachings and religious art is displayed throughout the school. Our classrooms and corridors are a place of peace and prayer as our children are called to be witnesses to Christ’s teachings.
