Christian Ethos


Through our Christian Faith, we acknowledge our responsibility to all, to enrich lives and show love and respect within our school. We believe in educating the whole child. We cherish everyone and encourage everyone to treat each other as a unique individual. We want the children of St Margaret’s to be caring and respectful towards one another; learn to be confident and courageous in the face of challenges; be the best they can be:

"Living Life in all its fullness'

(John 10:10)


Pupils take part in worship every day at Margaret's either as a whole school or within their Key Stages. This is a special part of our day where children and adults can stop, reflect and worship whatever their faith. Pupils across school take leading roles in worship and some plan their own acts of worship. In addition, all children can write prayers, hymns and themes using our suggestion box. We are regularly joined by special visitors, parents, governors and members of the clergy. 

Our close relationship with St Margaret's Church enables us to attend Eucharist Service each term.

We believe our ethos of inclusion and respect for all members of our school community enables children and parents/ carers to feel our acts of worship are an integral and important part of what makes a church school both distinctive and special. If you have any queries about this area of our school life please come and talk with the Head teacher or Father Rob.
