Welcome to our school
Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit our website!
As the school’s Headteacher, I am 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 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 underpinned by a structured target setting process and effective tracking of children’s progress. We are in the process of updating our curriculum from September 2018. This is to ensure that our curriculum supports our unique children We will post updates during the course of the year.
As Headteacher, I firmly believe that the success of our school and our children is very much dependant 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.
I 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 or to call in if you are passing.
Mrs K Hardman
