School Mission and Values

“Recognising Christ in Everyone”

As a Catholic school, we value and respect every person as an individual, always remembering our school mission to “Recognise Christ in Everyone.”

The curriculum we offer to all of our pupils is broad, balanced and firmly rooted in the Gospel values. In addition the school promotes the British values of democracy, liberty, tolerance and mutual respect through the school curriculum.

Our school behaviours are:

  1. Christ at the centre
  2. Continuous Improvement
  3. Consistency

These behaviours are supported by the gospel values:

  • service
  • sacrifice
  • truth
  • humility
  • integrity
  • justice

 

Our curriculum is enriched by a diversity of learning experiences that aim to develop pupils’ creativity and independence, so that they can become learners for life.

The school has high expectations of behaviour and attitudes. The hard working staff at the school strive to ensure that each child is appropriately challenged and excited to learn, so that they can achieve well and develop as well rounded individuals.

St Francis School recognises the importance of fostering a healthy home-school partnership. We understand that as parents, you know your child better than anyone and so we actively encourage regular communication and contact between home and school through parent meetings, consultation evenings and curriculum information workshops.

The school enjoys the support of a committed and supportive Board of Governors and a very active and enthusiastic Friends of St Francis association. This, together with the well – established parish links that the school maintains with St Francis Church, ensures a strong partnership between school, home and parish where our children can flourish and grow in Christ.
