Vision and Values


'Living and Learning Together'

St. Mark’s CE Primary School is a welcoming community where children develop a lifelong love of learning and sense of belonging, within a nurturing and inclusive Christian environment. All children have the opportunity to become free thinking, responsible citizens, whilst understanding and appreciating the wonder of our world. They leave St Mark’s with the confidence to live fulfilling lives, and respond with flexibility to an ever changing world.



Learning is a lifelong journey and we at St Mark’s feel privileged to be able to guide and shape our children along the pathway to success. We believe that learning should be an exciting endeavour providing purposeful experiences which motivate and challenge our children from when they join us at four until they leave at eleven, as confident and competent individuals who believe in themselves and are ready to excel.

To be a successful learner our children need to work both on their own and with others, think for themselves, be confident to explore new ideas whilst appreciating the wonder of our world. It is these values that drive our curriculum and they are developed progressively over the seven years of primary education.


We live and learn together and welcome you to journey with us.
