Highcliffe St Mark Primary School

Highcliffe St Mark Primary School logo

Our aim as a school is to give children the skills and knowledge they need to be confident, independent and curious learners. We place great value on the development of children as individuals who will become courageous advocates both for their local community and as global neighbours. We want to give our children a rich diet of learning experiences in order to develop happy, ambitious, well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage in their education both academically and socially. Our staff nurture positive mindsets and are keen to promote children's personal development, well-being and self-esteem.

As a Church of England School we firmly believe that all Christian Values should permeate throughout all our provision. We encourage our children to appreciate and take responsibility for God's creation through our Eco Schools ethos.

We take a thematic approach to learning where children are given opportunities to makes links across the curriculum. Children are able to apply their understanding and skills through exciting and interesting real life experience which are often linked to events which are happening locally, nationally and globally. We see our school as a place of safety to make sense of the world around them. We are very fortunate to have fantastic learning environments for our children including specialist classrooms for music and drama, cookery and computing. We also have fabulous school grounds which include a wild life area, a wildflower meadow a pond and field areas and are used as a classroom without walls.
