St. Mark’s C of E Primary School

We are a Church school and we pride ourselves on our church school  distinctiveness and the very special ethos that pervades through our mission statement,  ‘St Mark’s, with the love of Jesus, will give us wings to fly.’ Christian values are promoted, and our a part of the everyday life of the school, and are developed through a two year cycle. The culture of our school is one of ‘learners and leaders’- all stakeholders are learning and developing together and in a small school with such a skilled staff and such enthusiastic children, everyone is a leader. Although a small school we have big ideas and, with our many partners, we can provide our children with extended opportunities for sport and enrichment, and for our staff and governors training and ideas for further improvement.

Thanks to all who supported the Tea Party!

The Tea Party was a great success! Thanks to all who baked, came for tea, bought raffle tickets and stayed for the Cake Judging!

St.Marks looked gorgeous, decked all over in bunting, tea tables set with pretty tablecloths and flower posies by Félicité Flowers. The tea was served on beautiful old china tea sets which added to the charm. Glen Miller tunes played in the background and the church was filled with the sound of chatter and the odd prosecco glass clinking!

Our thanks to our wonderful guest judge, Mary-Ann Pickering, founder of the Crow Kitchen. Mary-Ann took on the task of tasting 60 cakes magnificently!  There were some really stunning entries. The Children’s entries were particularly impressive, so creative…”show stoppers!”
