St Margaret's is a distinctive and inclusive primary school situated in the historic village of Stoke Golding on the Leicestershire/Warwickshire border.

We are proud to be part of the Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust and have strong links with our local parish and community.

Our children are confident, friendly and highly motivated with outstanding behaviour and we have a strong team of dedicated teaching & support staff.

Our school is a founding member of the Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust. Working in close partnership with the other 8 schools in the trust has enabled us to widen opportunities for pupils and staff. The trust offers fantastic professional development and active network groups enable professionals to hone their practice and ensure that staff in all phases do not feel isolated.

Over the past few years staff have collaborated to develop an exciting and relevant knowledge rich curriculum. An important focus has been embedding a new phonics scheme to ensure that every child becomes a competent reader enabling them to discover more about the world in which they live. It is essential that all staff have an unwavering belief that every child can become a proficient reader.

Our vision as a church school is to provide each member of our school community with “The Roots to Grow and the Wings to Fly”. Our Christian values of friendship, forgiveness, respect, truthfulness, perseverance, thankfulness and koinonia, really do permeate through everything that happens at the school.

We are a caring and friendly school, with a strong Christian ethos and there's a very special atmosphere at St Margaret’s making it a great place to learn and work. Many children describe it as 'one big family'.

The community values the school; parents are involved and supportive in developing well rounded children ready to take on any challenge. Many opportunities are provided for all members of the school community to come together to learn and make a difference in their world.

I would encourage potential candidates to arrange to visit the school to experience the school ethos in action or call us if they have any questions. There is also lots of information on our school website.
