Our School Creed
This is our school, let peace live here.
Let the rooms be filled with happiness.
Let love be all around, love of one another,
love of all people and love of life and living.
Let us remember that as many hands build a house,
so many hearts make a school.
Mark Church of England First School is situated in the Somerset Levels village of Mark , near Burnham-on-Sea. We offer an enriching education for children aged from four to nine years of age.
Our school is a thriving part of the Cheddar Valley partnership of schools, which has a first, middle and upper school structure. The majority of our children transfer to Hugh Sexey Middle School at the end of Year 4.
There's a friendly, welcoming atmosphere here and we aim to provide an excellent environment where our children can grow and learn with independence and confidence, enjoyment and enthusiasm. We are committed to providing a broad curriculum that promotes creativity, celebrates individuality and involves all areas of learning.
The school currently has 127 children in 5 classes. Each class has a full time classroom assistant. Our main hall serves as the gym, dining hall and space for collective worship, drama, dance and music.
We have strong support from our governors, parents, church and members of the local community. We work closely together to do our best for the children in our care.
We have close links with our local church community and the Christian ethos is reflected in all we do.
We also have been awarded a 'Gold Artsmark' from the Arts council which acknowledges our outstanding arts teaching. Performing, music making and art are used to help provide a rich varied and exciting curriculum.
