School Vision and Ethos


Dear Parents/Carers

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

Our Christian vision for all here at St Mark's is: 

‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’

In knowing that God is always with us in everything we do our belief is that everyone can go on to fulfil our mission statement

“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 each day 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. There are 'No Outsiders' at St Marks CE Primary

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.
