Vision and Values

Our vision and linked bible reference are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

 

Following extensive consultation with all stakeholders during 2021/22, we were proud to share our new vision and values with the community in July 2022: 

 

Our school vision is:

Loving God - Serving others - Flourishing together

 

Our three core values are deliberately chosen as verbs, as things which we will all 'do' to support us living out our vision every day are:

Respect Aspire Rejoice

 

Our underpinning Bible quote, which is like the golden thread through our Vision and Values is:

 “Encourage one another and build each other up.”

1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

Children pray before lunch and will also end the day with a prayer. Children participate in an act of collective worship every day. Worship takes the form of in-person or virtual whole school worship, year group in-person worship, singing worship or celebration phase worships.

 

Children take an active part in leading worship and in 2021/22, we implemented a Worship Council for the first time.

 

Promoting fundamental British values

 

We believe that our school aims and values underpin fundamental British values, where citizens of the UK are encouraged to:

 

  • Respect and obey the law
  • Respect the rights of others, including their right to their own opinions
  • Treat others with fairness
  • Look after yourself and your family
  • Look after the area in which you live and the environment

 

At St. Mark’s Primary School we promote fundamental British values throughout our curriculum, Collective Worships, School Council discussions and our emphasis on RE and moral, social, spiritual and cultural development.
