A message from our Headteacher:
In February 2020, Bredbury St Mark's CE Primary School joined the Chester Diocesan Academies Trust (CDAT) family. As a church school, the links with St Mark's Church are incredibly strong and being able to unite with other church schools has been a blessing. This partnership has allowed opportunities for shared working for both children and staff. The schools and Trust's Christian values are integral to everything we do ensuring all our children and staff flourish.
Bredbury St Mark's is unique! So much so, I have spent the majority of my teaching career here. As soon as you walk through the doors you feel the warmth and care. I feel privileged to spend each day with such talented children and adults who see the best in each other. Our motto is 'DREAM BIG' because together we can achieve! We have been on a journey of improvement and a bespoke curriculum has been developed which meets the needs of our diverse context. Our children are also offered '50 experiences' which enrich their lives across their primary years. Our children leave us as well rounded individuals who believe in themselves and others.
‘With God all things are possible’ Matthew 19:26
It is this belief in us from God that will enable us to dream, believe and achieve
At Bredbury St Mark’s we align our school vision with that of the Chester Diocese Academy Trust with the promise that we want every child to experience ‘life in all its fullness.’ (John 10:10)
Our vision is supported through our school motto DREAM BIG. We believe in the capabilities of all and that dreams can be turned into reality.
We endeavour to inspire and motivate everyone to be the best that they can be, growing and learning in a community inspired by Christian values.
Our chosen key Christian values contribute towards achieving our vision.
Hope, Perseverance, Courage, Love, Friendship and Forgiveness
We aspire to equip everyone with the skills needed to believe they can achieve and to reach their goals. Our school is a safe, happy and welcoming place where every child’s uniqueness is valued and supported.
Working together with our community, we will develop happy children who can succeed in the modern world with their enquiring minds, spirit of curiosity, respect for themselves, others and the environment and having the skills, resilience and adaptability to thrive.

We believe that the quality of our School Effectiveness Support is a key benefit of CDAT membership.
