Mobile Phones

Children are not permitted to have a mobile phone at school. If we see a child with their mobile phone, an adult will ask the child to put it in a sanitised plastic wallet which will then be stored safely in the school office. A parent/carer should then pick this up from the office at the end of the school day.

Our Year 5 Breaktime Charter

We are pleased to share with you the wonderful work Year 5 have been undertaking in our PSHE lessons. You may wish to speak to your child about what they have been discussing in these lessons and they can share with you some of the mature and considered steps they have taken to make playtimes at St Margaret's 'fun for everyone'. 


After collating many responses from our pupils, we have been able to come up with our Year 5 playtime charter, as agreed by the most important stakeholders - the children! 


 We know that everyone in Year 5 has already begun to to do their best to implement and follow our new charter. This will help make playtimes fun for everyone. 


A huge well done to all of our Year 5 children for having such amazingly mature conversations over the last term!  

Here is a taster of the wonderful learning opportunities that the Year 5 children have experienced so far this year. Please click on the term tabs at the top of the page to see more photos and videos.
