Love – Trust – Respect - Inspire'

We are a newly built Church of England Primary School set in 8 acres of beautiful grounds.  We link closely with the Parish Church and Diocese of Salisbury. Being part of the Christian family greatly influences all aspects of school life.Click the links for our most recent reports:              2013 SIAMS . or   2013 OFSTED

Caring for your Child and Special Educational Needs

Above all we are a purposeful, safe and happy school where children love to learn.
For some children, aspects of education can prove more challenging than for others.  We are proud of being a fully inclusive school.  The following link will take you to our school  SEN information report.  Our school SEN policies and information can all be viewed under the 'Our school' tab..

We are pleased to introduce St. Mark's Church of England Primary School to you.

We would like to welcome you on behalf of the pupils, staff and governors to our Church school serving the community of Herston and Swanage.  We want you and your children to feel that you belong to St Mark's and are proud that this is your school.

Friends of St.Mark's

Friends of St Mark's are a small voluntary body who meet once or twice every half-term with the aim of raising extra funds for the school.

We do this through various events, generally organised with the smallest amount of input and resulting with the greatest amount of fun and funds made!
