School Values and Ethos


Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome to St Mark’s Church of England Primary School:

 “A family working and growing together to reach our potential.”

Our Christian faith values of Respect, Responsibility, Trust, Understanding and Fairness are at the heart of all we do as a school community.

We meet the needs of all children, inspiring high achievement. Our school is a safe and happy learning environment where academic and personal success is celebrated. We value children’s contributions in decisions that influence their learning, personal development and their environment and promote positions of responsibility for them.

We strive for the highest standards in both work and behaviour from the children. Diversity is celebrated and equality practised.

As a Church of England school we take great pride in the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils. Pupils lead collective worship and we regularly join together with friends, family and the local community in St Mark’s Church.

As a school we provide fun and enrichment through school trips, visitors and extra-curricular clubs.

We believe communication and information sharing to be the key in building the most effective working partnerships possible between home, school and the church.


Mr Damian Kay
