Christian Distinctiveness

 Our recent SIAMs Christian Distinctiveness report from March 2019 speaks glowingly of the strong Christian ethos throughout St Mark's. Below are just some of the highlights: 

 

  • Leaders and governors explicitly articulate and operate by the outward looking Christian vision, referring to its biblical rootedness and impact.
  • A broad and balanced creative curriculum which, through varied foci and enrichments, enables pupils to flourish in wisdom, knowledge and skills.
  • An unwavering trust in God and naturalness of prayer enfolds all that the school does, in mission, to serve its community.
  • ‘Unique and valued by God’ – the motto of St Mark’s encapsulating its vision. Out of this springs a school profusely serving its community, offering an educational experience informed by biblical rootedness. This is sharply focused on its context and at meeting the needs of its particular pupils. A shared belief is that all can achieve their Godgiven potential. ‘Our vision is to imitate Christ in that he was interested in the individual,’ says the headteacher.
  • An innovative curriculum has key drivers including character, community, spirituality and trips throughout.
  • Aspirational and exciting education, including learning outside the classroom, meets holistically, different needs of pupils. The school uses challenges that many pupils face in everyday life as opportunities for learning.
  • Numerous extra-curricular activities offer pupils enrichment to address inequalities faced in their own lives.
