Our Vision

    Highcliffe St Mark Primary School

    (A Church of England Foundation School)


    “Learning for life; Respect for all”



Each individual is inspired and encouraged to develop their talents, interests and potential in a community of mutual respect and consideration, reflecting our Christian values of respect, compassion and courage.



We aim to:


  • Place children first whatever is planned, considered and completed.


  • Provide the best primary education through an innovative and balanced, forward thinking curriculum in a stimulating environment where all are prepared to embark on future challenges with excitement and confidence.


  • Promote a working partnership throughout our school community by fostering a spirit of cooperation and loyalty encouraging everyone to use their rights and responsibilities to make a contribution which is valued.


  • Provide opportunities for social, moral, spiritual and cultural development, demonstrating a respect for other faiths and cultures.


  • Encourage a strong self esteem and high personal expectation within a secure and caring environment.


  • Provide opportunities for children to learn valuable key skills and attributes to encourage independent learning and personal development and encourage children to develop extra curricular interests to broaden their own perspective on life.


  • Prepare children to understand how to live a healthy and productive lifestyle and promote an awareness of sustainable development and the protection of the environment.
