Welcome from the Governors

 

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,

 

On behalf of all the Governors, welcome to St. Mark’s CE Primary School.

 

As a governing body we are very proud of our children and the school community to which they are central. As a Christian school we are keen to support the Head of School and her staff not only in creating a centre of excellence in Christian learning but also in developing our children into young adults who enrich our society. The school has a close and valued link to St. Mark’s Church and also works with other local clergy and churches which greatly supports school life.

 

At St. Mark’s School governors, staff, parents and children work as a team building on success, in an atmosphere of care where everyone feels valued. We would like to thank all the parents and careers who encourage and support their children so admirably creating a strong partnership that supports our ethos. We are grateful for the support of parents and the ‘Friends of St. Mark’s’ who work hard to raise funds for the school and promote the sense of belonging that we hope all families feel.

 

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic.  We are here to support and encourage our Head of School, Senior Leadership Team and all school personnel so that children have access to a rich education and the opportunities they deserve. We are recognised for and proud of our nurturing, caring and safe environment that enable our pupils to thrive and make good progress during their time with us.

 

For prospective parents and pupils visits to the school are encouraged and the children and staff of St. Mark’s look forward to meeting you and showing you around our great school.  Please contact the school office to arrange this.

 

Our Governing Body

 

The School Governors at St. Mark’s CE Primary School are parents, staff, foundation (Church) and co-opted representatives who are very interested and enthusiastic about the well-being of our school and our pupils and staff.

 

The Governors meet regularly and oversee the leadership and management of the school, providing expertise, critical friendship and a great deal of support to the school.  Their chief concern is to ensure a high quality education for the pupils of St. Mark’s and that the school complies with initiatives and legislation such as the Freedom of Information Act.

 

Our Governors at St. Mark’s are extremely approachable and welcome opportunities to share information about their business and to discuss school matters.
