At StOur children will journey through St Mark’s C.E. Primary School with their passion for learning ignited and with their self-belief and wellbeing nurtured. Every child will have the opportunity to flourish and will leave us prepared for a future of possibilities. Our curriculum responds to the needs of our children and enables them to shine academically and flourish socially, emotionally, morally and culturally whilst ‘loving God’ and ‘serving others’.
We promote a growth mindset approach to learning in order to develop resilience. Staff and children alike, 'Encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thess. 5:11)'. Children are taught to understand that making mistakes is an important part of the learning journey. We recognise the digitally-rich society in which are children are growing up in and we seek to develop their digital literacy skills and understanding of how to stay safe online.
Language is a means to communicating effectively, but it is also the doorway to magical and exciting worlds. Through a carefully planned and language-rich curriculum, we seek to enable our learners to become confident communicators, who are equipped to succeed now and in the future. Quality texts are at the heart of our curriculum and we seek to foster a love of reading. We recognise that fluency in reading enables children to have access to the full curriculum entitlement. Our approach to early reading seeks to develop proficient readers with secure word recognition and language comprehension skills. We seek to develop a passion for reading for pleasure and enjoyment.
We aim to nurture confident, independent children who are able to make responsible choices. We seek to foster children who can show empathy and compassion towards each other. We appreciate the importance of our children knowing about and understanding the world that is beyond their immediate doorstep. We provide a range of opportunities and experiences for our children to enable them to make connections with local and global issues.
