Message from the Head Teacher
I am very happy to welcome you to our school website!
At St Francis’ every child is welcomed and valued as a unique member of God’s family. We work together to help our children to reach their own individual gifts and talents in the wonderful family atmosphere that is special to our school. We aim to develop the whole child through the provision of high quality teaching within a safe and secure learning environment.
Our Mission is to provide an excellent education, within a loving, caring community, based on the life and teachings of Christ and traditions of the Church, in which each individual, as a reflection of Christ, is enabled to reach his or her full potential.
We hope to help children to look to Our Lord for guidance and direction in their lives. The Christian Gospel message supports and sustains everything which happens in the school so that the Catholic Christian faith, which is taught explicitly in the classroom can take root in the hearts and minds of all our children.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum enriched with visitors, visits, events and activities to inspire in each child a joy for learning. Our Catholic ethos focuses on our expectation for our children to be honest and respectful, care for others and work hard to develop skills, which will enable them to be good citizens and achieve success now and in the future.
We believe in an active working partnership between home and school and will provide you with regular information, both formally and informally, about all aspects of school life and your child’s progress at St Francis.
