Our Parish Community

St Margaret’s Primary School works closely with the Parish of The Sacred Heart in Cowie. We value the contribution made by the Church and the whole Parish to the religious instruction and observanceof the children and we welcome the opportunity for the children to play a part in the life of the Catholic community.

We are a member of the St Modan’s High School Learning Community and therefore work closely with St Modan’s, St Mary’s (Bannockburn), Our Lady’s (Raploch), St Mungo’s (Alloa), St Bernadette’s (Tullibody) and St Patrick’s (Denny).

St Margaret’s pupils and staff often work together with pupils and staff of Cowie Primary School. Some children from P4-P7 enjoy participating in a joint football league in the summer term. Every year we have a joint activity day for all children in the Nursery and Primary 1. Our Pupil Councils also meet to discuss local issues and staff and children often join together to celebrate special occasions. We actively look for opportunities to work together and have recently undertaken work with the community police, the Open Spaces initiative and CRAG (Cowie Rural Action Group). Children from both schools worked very well together and were instrumental in a consultation about the local community.

Our Wider Community

The school is involved with the community through The Community Rural Action Group (CRAG) and the Community Council. Over recent years, the school has built partnerships with Norbord and Cowie Panel Products. We are very open to building new partnerships to enhance learning for our pupils.
