Christian Vision and Values

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Mark's School Website.

We are a Church school and we pride ourselves on our church school  distinctiveness and the very special ethos that pervades through our vision statement, 'St Mark's, with the love of Jesus, will give us wings to fly.' Christian values, alongside British Values, are promoted, and are a part of the everyday life of the school, and are developed through a two year cycle. The culture of our school is one of 'learners and leaders'- all stakeholders are learning and developing together and in a small school, with such a skilled staff and such enthusiastic children, everyone is a leader.

   It is with great sorrow, I would like to let the families and community of St Mark's and Hadlow Down know, that Neil Kempson passed away last week. He was the care taker at St Mark's for many years until 2017 and a TA at Mayfield Primary School until this summer. He was an amazing man, who made such a difference to the children and adults he encountered. He will be missed immensely by the children, parents, staff and community. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this sad time.

St Mark's CEP School is SIAMS 'EXCELLENT'!

As a Church school, we pride ourselves on our church school distinctiveness, being inclusive, community links and giving our children 'their wings to fly'.

You will be familiar with Ofsted and it rigorous inspections, but as a church school, we are also subject to a second inspection called SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).

The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate how effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish.

On Wednesday 9th October, 2019, we had our SIAMS inspection and were graded 'EXCELLENT' please click here to read the full report.
