About Our School
Hornby, St. Margaret’s, C of E Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England school, maintained by Lancashire Education Authority. We offer a primary education to children aged 4 – 11.
The school building houses three classrooms, a library and a hall which is used for assemblies, physical education, drama and musical activities and as a dining room.
The school is particularly fortunate to have large grounds and these are used as much as possible for education. Environmental work is encouraged and the children maintain parts of the garden. We have planted trees and plants to provide shade and improve the school’s environment. We have a large adventure play area, field and an excellent tarmac area.
Our Ethos and Mission Statement
“It is the aim of the school to develop the academic potential of each child; and to cater for the social, moral, physical and spiritual requirements of the individual in a happy and secure Christian environment.”
The staff and governors firmly believe that the following aims are fundamental to the whole ethos of Hornby St. Margaret’s C of E Primary School. We aim:
To provide a warm, friendly environment in which each child can feel happy and secure and can develop respect for themselves, for others and for the school.
To provide a curriculum that enables each child to reach their potential by providing a balance of the academic, the practical, physical and cultural aspects of education.
To provide experiences that will develop lively, enquiring minds.
To foster an enjoyment in learning and, as children progress through the school, to develop self-motivation, organisation and independence.
To match the curriculum to the abilities, needs and experiences of our children.
For children to find success and satisfaction in their achievements.
