Welcome, Vision and Values
A very warm welcome to our website. We hope that it will give you a real flavour of our happy and successful school.
St Margaret's is a popular school with a reputation for high standards. We strive to meet the individual needs of the children in our care and welcome children of all abilities and varied interests. We encourage them to make the most of their talents and the wide range of opportunities that we provide. Children and adults at St Margaret’s are expected to work hard, be respectful of others and do their best in all areas of school life.
As a Church of England School we seek to be a loving Christian family in which children of whatever background and faith may grow happily in understanding, knowledge and confidence, under-pinned by the positive values which shape our school.
We believe that learning should be relevant, exciting and fun. We work hard to provide a rich diet of subjects enabling children to be actively involved to develop a love of learning.

What are British values?
Oftsed states that British values are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
At St Margaret’s CofE Junior School we promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, incorporating fundamental British values. This permeates the school’s entire curriculum and supports the development of the whole child. We meet daily for an act of collective worship, establishing weekly themes that support our school ethos of both Christian and British values. These themes are supported by effective relationships throughout the school. Children are taught a variety of traditional British hymns and carols and perform these in assembly as well as at traditional church services. We follow guidance set out in the DfE’s document ‘Promoting fundamental values as part of SMSC in schools’
At St Margaret’s CofE Junior School, we work hard to develop our pupils’ values and attitudes. British values are promoted by all the staff and provide a model of behaviour for our pupils. They are embedded in all areas of the curriculum; planning reflects opportunities to develop our pupils’ understanding of each strand of British values regularly. Additionally we celebrate national days such as Remembrance Day, St George’s Day, the Queen’s Jubilee and birthday etc.
