Thank you for taking the time to complete the recent Parents’ and Carers’ Views Questionnaire. We had a fantastic response. The results were very positive and encouraging. There were also some very useful comments made, which will help us to improve St Mark's even further with your help.

Areas we are working hard to develop:
Parents would like to see the school provide a greater range of activities and clubs outside of lessons.
The school are delighted to say that the staff are busy planning clubs to start again in January....look out for the club letter!
25% of parents who returned the questionnaires felt that they didn't know how the school deals with Bullying.
The school are commited to sharing our good practice with you and we will be holding an Anti-Bullying Information meeting on Monday 23rd November at 9am in the school hall. A letter has been sent to all parents and all are welcome to attend.
Some parents felt that they were unsure of who our Governors are and how to contact them.
A list of who our Governors are can be found on the 'Governors' page of our website. The Governors have been working very hard this term on raising their profile. So far this term, they have attended many school events, school trips and conducted in- school visits.
If you should need to contact the governing body, you can write to our Chair of Governors, Mr Mark Bonnett at C/O St Mark's C of E Primary School, Queens Road, Farnborough, Hants GU14 6DU or leave a message for him to contact you by calling the school on 01252 544155
