Welcome to our school,
St Mark’s Church of England Primary is a newly built school, set in its own extensive grounds. We are very lucky to be located close to the seaside, within the beautiful rolling hills of the Purbecks.
We are a school where individuals are valued and helped to always achieve their personal best. Children are supported to become confident and independent young people, ones who thrive on challenge, and are motivated to learn.
All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique. We believe that the ‘special feel’ at St Mark’s comes from our caring, supportive and friendly environment.
I am extremely proud to lead an excellent team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving the very highest educational standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care. Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; our aim is to, ‘Open the door for the, Journey of Life.’
Our recent Ofsted inspection highlighted the work we do to support our families, and the work we undertake with our community. We are constantly developing this and always welcome parents and carers to join in the fun!
We were pleased to receive notification, this year, from the Department of Education, that congratulated the school for providing our children with the very best of educations- results over time demonstrate that our children make outstanding rates of progress. Progress that is in line with the top 1% of all schools Nationally.
