At St Francis our main aim is to give all children the opportunity to develop their full potential. We are a two-form entry Voluntary Aided primary school with a nursery. We welcome children of all faiths and none, with a range of backgrounds, abilities and talents. Within a happy and secure atmosphere, the children are valued for themselves and experience a wide range of balanced learning opportunities, helping them to grow into independent and caring people.

  • can sustain and develop high quality teaching and learning across the school to improve outcomes;
  • will be committed to high expectations and achievements;
  • will value people, leading and motivating all who work in the school;
  • can continue to develop the school in partnership with children, colleagues, parents, governors and the local community.

We can offer;

  • children who are eager to learn and feel happy and safe in their school;
  • a high quality, motivated and committed staff team;
  • a supportive and dedicated governing body;
  • engaged and supportive parents;
  • a modern and well-maintained building;
