Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and the Methodist Church and in partnership with the Churches at parish diocesan and circuit level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
At St Mark’s we all strive to:
Spread Christian values in all we think, do and say whilst having regard for other faiths.
Treat every person equally and make every person feel that they matter.
Encourage confidence and individuality.
Make sure everyone feels safe and happy.
Make learning fun through challenge and team work.
Help children understand how to improve their learning.
Work independently or positively with partners or in groups.
