Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Francis Church of England Primary School.

Dear Parent / Carer,

We hope you will enjoy reading through our 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 call in or 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.’

We are all very proud of our excellent school and we were thrilled by our two positive inspections - SIAMS (2015) and Ofsted (2019) - who said “There is a tangible family atmosphere that is inclusive, ensuring all feel cared for and safe.”  (SIAMS 2015) and “The school is very effective in promoting pupils’ responsible attitudes and good behaviour.  Pupils move around the school and interact at breaktimes harmoniously. It is a calm school. Pupil’s cultural experiences are extended to include their developing understanding of religious, cultures and communities beyond their personal.” (Ofsted 2019)

In our Christian, caring school our vision is to aim for exceptional teaching and learning, inspiring our pupils to be the best that they can be. We constantly strive to improve our standards at all times in order to give our children the best educational opportunities. We provide a high quality education and our curriculum is enriched with real life experiences and encourages children to think imaginatively and make well informed choices. There is a strong determination to make every child’s life here a rich and rewarding experience so that they leave with a love of learning, high self-esteem, pride in their success and a readiness to enjoy the challenges in life.

We are looking forward to welcoming you an your family to St. Francis school family.

Yours faithfully,

Mr James Kewley
