Dear Parent / Carer,
We hope you will enjoy reading our school website and that it gives you a flavour of school life at St Francis, however, the only way to get the full picture is to come and visit us. We would love to show you round our school and answer any questions that you may have. Please telephone to make an appointment.
St Francis Church of England Primary School is a popular voluntary aided school where we all work by our mission statement: ‘Love Faith. Love People. Love Learning.’
Our Christian vision leads all of our work at school. We want our children to live fulfilling lives that are rooted in the values taught by Jesus. We welcome all children and families. We want our children to learn from the stories in the Bible of how they can live harmoniously alongside those around them, meaning that all of our children are able to concentrate on their learning. Our curriculum vision has been built around this vision also.
I have been the Headteacher of St. Francis since January 2020. Prior to this, I supported the improvements in my role as Acting Headteacher. St. Francis has been on a significant journey over the last few years and although our most recent Ofsted judgement is ‘Requires Improvement’, they listed great strengths of the school and saw that the school was already improving the areas for action set. Much work has been completed since January 2020 in order to continue our improvement journey and I am proud to say that our school community is thriving!
