Have you helped the community in some way during the coronavirus pandemic?

Maybe you’re a healthcare or education professional, shop worker, lorry driver, office worker or are in any other role that has helped keep the country going. Perhaps you’ve even helped with testing or vaccinations. If so, please get in touch with us – we want to celebrate the part that members of our community have played over the last year. We would like to celebrate this as part of our Easter service! Please get in touch via or via our social media pages.

Spring Term 2021

On Monday 22nd February the Prime Minister announced that all schools can begin to reopen for face to face teaching for all students from Monday 8th March.

In order to do this as safely as possible schools have been asked to ensure mass testing of all staff and students before their return. In order to do this safely and effectively there will be a phased approach. Please see the letter to parents for further details including the return dates, consent forms and booking process. Communication | St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy

Remote  teaching will continue for each year group until they return to the classroom during the week of the 8th March. They should access their usual timetable remotely on Microsoft Teams

No further public examinations will take place this term, we await further detail from Ofqual and the DfE.

On our return, the times of the day will remain the same as they have been throughout the autumn term.
