At St Francis’ Catholic Primary School we provide a safe nurturing environment in which each child is recognised as unique, special and loved by God. We create a community in which Christ’s love permeates all that occurs in school and where the gospel values of praying, sharing, forgiving and truthfulness are a living reality.

St Francis’ provides an orderly, stimulating environment in which effort, talent and personal success are rewarded, special needs are met and cultural diversity is celebrated. We strive for excellence in every aspect of the education process. As a result, we prepare all our children to be confident, feel valued and respected members of our school community and society as a whole.

We value the partnership between home, school and parish. We recognise that everyone has an important part to play in children’s development and that all contributions no matter how big or small are valued. We therefore seek to work in close partnership with parents and other professionals at all times.

At St Francis’ we live our mission statement every day as Peacemakers in the classroom, on the playground and in the community; we show Love towards each other as we see Christ in all we meet; and we provide vibrant classrooms where the Knowledge is a tool that is used to empower all. 

Thank you very much for your interest in our work and we very much hope you enjoy exploring our website.

God Bless.
