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, Vision and Mission Statement
We strive, through our Christian ethos and a broad curriculum, to welcome all children into our caring family. We will prepare pupils to be responsible and caring, global citizens of the 21st century. Our children will be guided and supported to achieve their potential as they are all of infinite worth.
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
We develop the academic potential of each child and cater for the social, moral, physical and spiritual requirements of the individual in a happy and secure Christian environment.
We 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.
We 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.
We provide experiences that will develop lively, enquiring minds.
We foster an enjoyment in learning and, as children progress through the school, develop self-motivation, organisation and independence.
We match the curriculum to the abilities, needs and experiences of our children.
We enable children to find success and satisfaction in their achievements.
