Our Curriculum

At St Margaret’s, we believe that children learn best when they are excited about their learning; for this reason, we teach a themed approach where possible.  Through making strong links across curriculum areas, children begin to make connections and the learning experience is much richer.  Each term, when children return to school after their termly break, teachers and children get dressed up in line with the theme of learning and get to experience their ‘WOW’ day.  This is a day of immersive learning where children really get a good grounding in the new theme.  Children in year 1-6 also take part in a project exhibition, where they get to showcase their project work that was completed over the termly holiday –this is always a great celebration.

The learning experience we provide is completed with the knowledge that each child is unique and special.  As a Church of England Primary School, we place our Christian values at the heart of everything that we do; we live our values.  We teach the Diocese programme of study for religious education and also place worship very firmly in our day to day lives.  Assemblies take place each week where children learn from the stories in the Bible.  Each week, we focus one of our Christian Values.  We also attend Church each half term.  Each day we aim to fulfil our mission statement: ‘Educating for Life’ by encouraging the whole development of each and every child as a person made in God’s image and deeply loved by their Maker.
