Welcome to St Margaret's-at-Cliffe Primary School!

We hope this site will  give you information about the school and the community it serves.  Hopefully it will not just give you the dry facts and statistics, but a flavour of what it's like to be at St Margaret's-at-Cliffe Primary School.

No web site, however high tech, however colourful and animated, can replace a visit to soak up the atmosphere. If you are a prospective parent, do contact us to make an appointment to see the school in action.

Headteacher
Ms Helen Comfort



We want St Margaret's-at-Cliffe Primary School to be a welcoming place where there is a clear sense of purpose, shared by everyone involved with the School.

We would like all concerned to be proud of the School and to feel a real sense of belonging. We believe that all relationships should be built on mutual trust and that there must be equality of opportunity.

We believe that children have a fundamental right to learn and teachers a right to teach; good discipline is therefore essential. Central to our goals are high expectations in all spheres of school life. We constantly strive to raise standards and work hard to ensure that every child fulfils their potential.

We believe that confidence is at the heart of success and that it is important to recognise the range of experiences that children bring to school. We know that children thrive on praise and encouragement and always try to acknowledge their achievements. We believe that happy children learn more effectively. It is important to chart the progress that children make as they move through the school and to use this information to improve the quality of teaching and learning. We want children to enjoy their time at school, to work hard and to become life-long learners. We believe that children can achieve well whatever their ability.

We also recognise that many children need additional help at some point in their school lives. We aim to identify children’s needs quickly and to act swiftly because we believe that early intervention is essential. We also recognise that parents need to be kept informed and involved.

We believe that the curriculum should be broad and balanced. We endeavour to deliver a curriculum that the children will find exciting, challenging and fulfilling. This enables children to develop enquiring minds and the ability to question, reason and communicate.

Staff are committed and valued. They support each other and work together as a team. They want children to succeed.

The Governing Body are knowledgeable about the School and are keen to be involved. They are forward-looking and support the School in always working to improve.

We aim to develop even closer links with the community. We recognise that education is a continuous and life-long process and that the School plays a vital role in the local community.

Finally, we believe that partnership between school and home is crucial to success. We greatly value support from parents and carers and know that good communication between home and school is essential. If by the time children leave St Margaret's-at-Cliffe we have given every child the opportunity to develop to their full potential and to become an effective, caring member of society, we will have achieved these aims.

OUR HISTORY

St Margaret's-at-Cliffe is a co-educational Community Primary School, catering for 4 to 11 year old pupils, set in a village environment between Dover and Deal, off the A258.  The village consists mainly of private housing and has a population of approximately 3000. Children also attend the school from East Langdon, Kingsdown, Dover and Deal. However, there is no official catchment area and children may attend from anywhere in the area.

The school building was purpose-built in 1970 replacing a Church of England (controlled school) established in 1847.  The school no longer has any religious affiliation, but still develops strong ties with the local church and the village as a whole.  The school has seven classrooms, a large hall and an adjoining  unit housing our I.C.T. suite.
 
There are extensive grounds that contain an environmental area, a large field suitable for a variety of activities including football, cricket, athletics and our annual sports day. The school has the added advantage of being situated close to the sea and in the heart of the village.

There is a full-time privately run Nursery on site, which is closely linked to the School and thereby plays a vital role in preparing the children for their introduction to full-time education. The Nursery and After School Club Committee provides an 'Early Birds Club' from 8.00 am and an After School Club finishing at 6.00 p.m. each day.

Our teaching staff consists of the Headteacher, and seven class teachers.  The classes are organised as follows:-

   Class R - Reception
   Class 1 - Yr. 1
   Class 2 - Yr. 2
   Class 3 - Yr. 3 
   Class 4 - Yr. 4
   Class 5 - Yr. 5
   Class 6 - Yr. 6

There are seven Classroom Assistants, an Office Manager/Bursar, a Headteacher’s Secretary/P.A., a Clerical Assistant, a Caretaker, a Cleaner, two Midday Supervisors and two Midday Playleaders.  Meals are cooked on site in a large modern kitchen by the privately run Whole School Meals Ltd.

Our Standard number of entry is 30 and no Key Stage 1 class (Infants) ever exceeds this.  We strive to ensure that classes are not cross key staged, (i.e. infants are not mixed with juniors). Children are taught as a class in ability groups and work individually as lesson planning demands.

There are after-school clubs (Games, ICT, Gardening, French, Homework) and other activities organised by staff and parents.  In addition there are opportunities to learn various musical instruments and there are various fund-raising events held throughout the year which enable us to provide vital extras.  Year 5 have the opportunity to take part in an annual residential visit to Swattenden and having established links with France, an annual visit is organised for Year 6.  French listening and speaking is experienced from the Reception Class.

MISSION STATEMENT

The aim of St Margaret‛s C.P. School is to develop happy well-motivated pupils according to their varying abilities, in a caring and stimulating learning environment in partnership with parents. A well-trained staff, supported by the best available resources, aims to promote intellectual, moral, social, physical and spiritual development. Pupils will thereby be prepared to derive maximum benefit from their secondary education and ultimately be fit for a life of work, leisure, family and community responsibilities.

CURRICULUM

Early Years

All children from the age of four should be given the opportunity to follow a curriculum which enables them to make maximum progress in their learning. Our curriculum develops the six Early Learning Goals and both the Nursery and our Reception Class follow this curriculum plan. This plan is in line with the new 3 to 5 years old Foundation Stage Curriculum which was introduced in the Autumn Term 2000.

The guidelines for the Literacy Hour and Numeracy Hour are followed and we endeavour to ensure that children feel secure and valued by creating an environment where their needs are regularly assessed. As in other state schools, all the children of statutory school age at St Margaret's-at-Cliffe follow the National Curriculum. This means they follow nationally agreed programmes of study in Maths, English, Science, Information Communication Technology, Art, Music, PE, History, Geography and Design and Technology. In addition to the subjects specified in the National Curriculum, the School Curriculum also includes Religious Education and Cross-Curricular issues such as Personal Social and Health Education, Environmental Education, Equal Opportunities and Multi-Cultural Education.
