In St. Mark’s Primary School we aim to:
Provide a welcoming atmosphere and a positive ethos throughout the school, ensuring all children are educated in a safe, secure, happy and health-promoting environment.
Develop the Catholic faith within each child in a caring Christian environment.
Have consistently high expectations and match these with high quality modern resources which are effectively used to support programmes of study.
Raise attainment through self evaluation and continuous improvement in every aspect of the schools work and life.
Develop within all pupils a positive attitude towards their environment contributing to the wider community in a responsible and caring way.
Develop the partnership with parents and carers and ensure that they are kept fully informed and encouraged to be active participants in their children’s progress.
Support the development of best professional practices amongst the staff which provide impact and benefit to pupils.
Ensure each child is brought to a deeper understanding of their rights and responsibilities and is helped to appreciate the diversity of other cultures and beliefs.
