We are delighted to welcome all of our children back to school. Our hearts are full now our family is back together.

Attendance Expectations: School attendance is once again compulsory from September 2020. This is to minimise the longer-term impact of the pandemic on children’s education, wellbeing and wider development. This means from September, the usual rules on school attendance will apply. It will be the parents’ duty to ensure that their child attends regularly at the school where they are a registered pupil. It will be the schools’ responsibilities to record attendance and follow up absence. Attendance is on the understanding that people who are ill stay at home. The school will ensure regular and thorough hand washing is in place, and that this is part of the routine of each day along with good respiratory hygiene, ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ according to government recommendations. 


Please let the school office know if your child has been tested for coronavirus - even if the test results are negative.
Lateness - The children will now be operating as a year group Bubble. This means that we have staggered start and finish times to ensure that year group bubbles do not mix. It is extremely important that children are on time before and after school to ensure the social distancing measures we have put in place for the safety of our school community can be maintained.

Welcome to our Nursery


A message from the Headteachers

 On behalf of all of the children, staff, and governors, we would like to warmly welcome you to St. Margaret Clitherow Catholic Voluntary Academy.

At St. Margaret's we believe that every child is special and that 'the child is at

the centre of everything we do.'  At the heart of our school is our Catholic faith

and we strive to ensure that the children develop spiritually and morally as well

as academically, physically, socially and creatively.

We strive to be a place where children are happy and enjoy their learning in a safe and secure environment.  We are committed to developing the talents and skills of every child to enable them to achieve the best that they can.  We also wish to nurture their spiritual and personal development so that they will grow in their understanding of our mission statement, 'Love one another as I have loved you'  (John 13:34-35) and become caring and responsible citizens.

We hope this website will give you an insight into our school. We are a school and church community whose mission statement calls to:

"Love one another as I have loved you." - John 13:34-35

We strive to live out the Gospel values of respect, honesty, and truth in our daily lives.

Christine Reilly and Sarah Sweeney
