Welcome to Our School
Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit our website!
As the school’s Headteachers, we are delighted to be welcoming you and hope that this website gives you some idea of our school’s character, its strengths and the values that underpin our work.
Through its distinctive Christian character and dedicated,enthusiastic and fabulous team,St Mary Magdalen’s School has a well deserved reputation for the significant contribution that it makes to the personal and academic achievement of all of our children.
The school has many strengths, not least our dedication to ensuring that our children become successful learners and our commitment to their families.
As a Church of England school we are committed to our strong Christian ethos and we are proud of the close links that we have with St Mary Magdalen’s Church, Accrington.
We have a team of highly committed and professional staff work who work hard to ensure that high standards are maintained whilst at the same time delivering stimulating and engaging lessons which inspire and enthuse our children.
We believe in challenging and supporting children through a curriculum that is written with our unique children in mind. We have a structured target setting process to enable us to support their progress as they develop new skills during their time at our school. We are still in the process of updating our curriculum and this will continue throughout 2021 - 2022 (please see our current plans). This is to ensure that our curriculum supports our amazing and individual children We will post updates during the course of the year. School is of course different this year because of the pandemic and we are trying to adapt our curriculum to ensure that our children are not disadvantaged because of Covid disruption.
As Headteachers, we firmly believe that the success of our school and our children is very much dependent on a partnership between parents, carers, families and the local community that is open and supportive. We operate an “open door” policy and parents and visitors are always welcome. There will always be someone happy to listen and hear your views.
The children are at the heart of all we do here at St Mary Magdalen's, their needs are at the forefront of all our plans and at the heart of our school’s ethos. This was indeed backed up by our Ofsted report from October 2021 which us good in all areas and especially mentioned how the school goes the extra mile for it's pupils.
We hope that you find our website informative and, should you have queries or would like to visit the school, please feel free to contact us to arrange a safe visit.
These are continuing hard times for everyone, we will always strive to support you as much as we possibly can.
