At St Margaret's we seek to deliver a creative and engaging curriculum which develops the knowledge and skills of the children whilst fostering an understanding of culture and diversity, raising aspirations, encouraging responsibility and giving back to the community.
Should we be forced to close any classes or the whole school due to exceptional circumstances we have capacity in school to support remote learning within 48 hours.
You can find policies linked to our curriculum and teaching and learning on the policies tab of our website.
2023 - 2024
At. St. Margaret's we deliver a two year rolling curriculum due to our mixed age classes. This academic year we are delivering year B.
We deliver our curriculum through a thematic approach wherever possible using 'Big Questions' to support our learning and thinking. These enable us to deliver the national curriculum effectively, whilst also allowing us the space for open ended thinking and spiritual and moral development. These questions are posed by Maggie, our friendly rainbow bird, who likes to know what we are learning and how much we have learnt!
A lot of our learning is based on the Hamilton Brookes curriculum. Further details can be found on their website.
