St Mark's Eccles C.E. Primary School

Our vision

Growing, sharing and flourishing in God’s glory. 

 ‘God saw all that he had made and he saw that it was very good’. 

Genesis 1:31 

Inspired by learning in beautiful surroundings, we have become a school community that flourishes in learning and life. When we reflect on the wonder that is God’s creation, we are encouraged to grow into enthusiastic learners who respect, value and reach out to others on their own learning journey. 

Jesus said, “I have come in order that you might have life; life in all its fullness.” 

John 10:10 

St Mark's moved to its current site in 2002 and pupils and staff were treated to learning in an outstanding environment from day one. We are forever inspired by our setting; the wonder of God’s creation permeating our every learning experience. When developing our current vision, we couldn’t ignore how our outdoor environment shapes our learning, enables us to flourish and become the school community we are. 

When we asked ourselves, “Who are we?” we answered, “We are learners who, inspired by the wonders of God’s creation around us, flourish and inspire others to flourish”. 

We are a school community learning in a beautiful landscape and constantly reflecting on God’s creation. Our vision defines everything we do.
