    Mission Statement

    "Each and every one of us is unique and an expression of the love of God. At St. Francis, with the guidance of The Holy Spirit, we strive to nurture and promote the spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional, academic, social and physical development of the individual for the glory of God"


    As a Catholic School, St. Francis is an educational community, where Christian religious and moral values are the basis for all its activities.  

    To provide a curriculum based on Gospel values that is varied, challenging and inspiring and
    which enables every individual to fulfil their potential to the highest possible standard.

    The aims of the school are:
    • To have a school with a clear sense of purpose and direction - with procedures being constantly subject to monitoring and evaluation to ensure a  well-resourced, progressive environment.
    • To create and maintain a happy, stimulating and productive working environment where the children can become independent and active learners
    • To strengthen the home, school and parish communities to enable the children to acquire the highest spiritual and moral values.
     We believe that our children will learn best:
    • In a spirit of praise and encouragement
    • When we develop their independence
    • When we set high expectations.

     We expect our children:
    • To do their best
    • To be polite with high standards of behaviour
    • To think of others
    Our work with children requires us at all times to ensure that every child is safe and secure

    Christmas Productions

    The Christmas Productions were amazing presentations, two quite different stories. In KS2 good triumphs over evil and the KS1 and Reception children retold the story of the Nativity. Our children were a pleasure to watch and I warmly thank every parent for bringing their children to each production.

    May I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the staff who worked long and hard to ensure the productions were a success.

    Can I also thank SFF for providing the refreshments enjoyed by so many. I look forward to their continued support next year

    Thank you for all the kind donations £462.25 for Fr Gerald and his school in Uganda.
