Marguerite taught in primary schools in London and was a deputy headteacher in Brent before becoming headteacher in Kent. After five years she moved to her second headship which involved the challenge of amalgamating a Nursery, an Infant and a Junior school into one of the largest primary schools in the county. Marguerite has also been an adviser to headteachers and, ever widening her sphere of influence, she took the opportunity to pass on her skills and experience to the next generation of teachers at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Marguerite conceived and developed Go-Givers and the Make a Difference Challenge for the Citizenship Foundation. She also developed a set of learning materials entitled ‘Get on with the Game’ for the Premier League, and is the author of two books ‘Prejudice’ and ‘War and Conflict’ in the Headlines series published by A & C Black.
‘Through high quality SMSC we have the opportunity to nurture reflective wisdom that will enable our children to make wise and appropriate choices in the complex and changing circumstances that they are likely to encounter in modern society,
SMSC has the potential to raise aspirations, develop empathy, deepen spirituality, connect young people with their communities and develop values that challenge individuals beyond the material world. It creates opportunities for pupils to learn and practise human virtues and values such as compassion, hope, faith and forgiveness.’Back
