St Margaret's Church Primary School

St Margaretís Church Primary School is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School. The P.C.C. has the right to nominate four Foundation Governors and the Vicar is usually responsible for proposing five Diocesan Governors. The school also benefits from a significant amount of volunteer support from the churches. The school was enlarged about 10 years ago and now has two forms of entry and attracts children from all over Barking and Dagenham as well as Newham and Redbridge.
