This is Actual Liverpool project video is well received by Liverpool

THIS Is Actual Liverpool (#TIAL), headed by film maker Megan Walker, launched their trailer for the project #TIAL live at The Baltic Fleet which was well received by Liverpudlians and non-Scousers who attended.

The project, an alternate view of Liverpool in light of the trailer for 'This Is Liverpool', began filming various iconic Liverpool locations only 10 days ago and has so far reached heights of over 5,000 likes on Facebook with a wealth of individuals and businesses offering their services and building space for the project.

TIAL hope that their video is received well and gives Liverpudlians something positive they can connect to. Depending on the response Walker says:- "We definitely want to continue making longer and more theme specific videos. We just need a little help in creating them."

With a fast-growing fan base, 'This Is Actual Liverpool' calls for any individual, group, business or collective wishing to promote a positive look of Liverpool to get in touch via social media @realliverpool #TIAL or by email.

The video can be viewed online.

Inspector gives 'Outstanding' for St Mark's of Scarisbrick

ST Mark's Church of England Primary School are delighted to announce that they have recently been awarded 'OUTSTANDING' by SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools).

On the 14 February 2014 the school opened its doors to welcome the children as they do every morning, but a special visitor arrived too. No, it wasn't a delivery driver with a dozen red roses to celebrate St Valentine 's Day …………It was the SIAM's Inspector!

After having various meetings with the Children, Parents, Teachers, St. Mark's Vicar, School Governors, Tours of the school and its excellent facilities, lessons observed and pupil participation, he had no option but to award this fast growing school with:- 'OUTSTANDING'.

The Inspector stated in his report that:- "Daily worship is excellent and vibrant and is central to the life of the school. Relationships based on Christian love and care for individuals is outstanding. The distinctive Christian values of love, peace, trust, responsibility, equality, generosity and forgiveness are made explicit and are deeply embedded in the daily life of the school." He went on to say:- "Parents feel that the school listens to their views and that problems are dealt with quickly and sensitively."

The report goes on to praise the leadership and management of the school saying they are both excellent and St Mark's pupils and parents speak highly of the school.

Head teacher, Mrs Freeman stated that she is extremely happy with the report; she is and always has been proud of the school and its pupils. Her main goal as Head teacher is to provide all the tools for children to learn and achieve in a happy and safe environment. By promoting Christian values and educating all pupils the meaning of 'faith' they are all encouraged to develop their own spiritual awareness. These values show children what is morally correct as they progress in life.

St Mark's school looks not only at Christianity and its traditions, other religions and cultures are explored. Mrs Freeman also commented that she has a great team of staff, pupils and a strong relationship with St Marks Vicar, who have all contributed to the fantastic outcome of this report. She is delighted to have been able to show the amazing work that St Marks do and has to offer our future generation. She commented:- 'Our mission statement is that we encourage each child to achieve their full potential and develop a love of life and learning, within our caring Christian community. That is what St Mark's School stands for and that is what we strive to achieve.'
