Our school motto at St Mary Magdalene is ‘Believe, Achieve and Succeed Together’ because we believe our children will achieve wonderful things and succeed in life together. We aim to ensure that excellence and enjoyment is at the heart of all we do and that every member of our school community is equally valued. We have a whole school singing assembly on Thursday afternoons in which we practice songs for church, school events, helping to increase the children’s musical knowledge.
High expectations, respect, honesty and responsibility are just a few of the values we strive to instil in our pupils. These values are nurtured through our distinctive Christian character and through our Level 2 Rights Respecting School status. Our school improvement priorities are always focused on ensuring the continual development of fun, challenging and creative opportunities for our children, balanced with a relentless drive for ever improving standards.
We are fortunate to possess vast open space for the children to play, including a beautifully constructed garden; boasting a stage, secret listening posts and a woven tepee. The children are encouraged to explore nature in this safe and natural environment.
At St Mary Magdalene School, we operate an ‘open door’ policy. We believe our children receive the best education when parents/carers and our dedicated staff work together as a team. We welcome and encourage a visit to our school, where you will find happy, enthusiastic, respectful and confident children learning and playing in a safe and stimulating environment.
We offer an exciting and engaging creative curriculum with wider opportunities in the form of after-school clubs. We also have a dedicated Breakfast Club for those who need the school day to start that little bit earlier.
