We are a Voluntary Aided Catholic Federation under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Nottingham. All Saints and St Margaret’s Catholic primary schools were federated in April 2014.
We are served by one governing body and both our schools work in close partnership together. Our mission in serving the local Catholic parishes of All Saints & St Mary’s, St Margaret’s and the Immaculate Conception Broadbottom, is to offer Catholic education, spiritual and moral teaching to the children in our care.
Religious education lies at the core of everything that we do. We devote 10% of curriculum time to the teaching of RE and follow the ‘Come and See’ scheme from Reception to Year 6. We also explore and express our faith through other subjects including Art, Drama, Music, Science and Literacy.
Collective acts of worship for the whole school take place three times a week and in individual classes on the remaining two days. Our parish priests are regular visitors to school and there are many occasions throughout the year when we celebrate Mass together as a whole school or individual year groups. In addition to this, prayer is important at all times both collectively and individually.
