St Mark's Catholic School


Our curriculum intent is central to our vision and ethos.

To this end we intend to develop the potential of every student, particularly disadvantaged and students with SEND at St. Mark's by providing a curriculum which:

  • Is ambitious, broad, balanced and coherent within and across subjects
  • Is coherently planned and sequenced
  • Focuses on the national curriculum and places the Ebacc at its core
  • Is enriching and engaging for all students so that they achieve regardless of their background or prior attainment
  • Develops skills of numeracy, literacy, oracy, ICT
  • Prepares students for future learning and employment, including the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life
  • Equips our students to be active citizens within the local and international community in order to overcome social disadvantage

Our curriculum intent is also set firmly within the context of our Catholic mission Statement.

St Mark’s is a Catholic community inspired by Gospel values where relationships are rooted in love. At the heart of our mission is a commitment to live out our faith and a dedication to embrace excellence in all that we do. We believe in education that instils possibilities, transforms lives and enables all to fulfil their potential.
