Truth & Love


Our Curriculum

Mission Statement

We welcome and value all as individuals created by God, to work, learn, pray and play together.

Like St Francis, we show care and respect for each other and our world.

We have high expectations of each other, and inspire children to be the best that they can become.


Vision Statement

At St. Francis’ School, we are developing a curriculum which will: -

  • Provide children with a strong moral basis for their lives and learning, based on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and fundamental rights and values – creating ‘activists for the future’.
  • Prepare our children for not only the next phase of their education, but also equip them to take their place in a world which is rapidly changing – giving them skills as thinkers and problem solvers.
  • Help children to understand, promote and maintain their own wellbeing and demonstrate concern,  consideration and support for others.
  • Be relevant to the needs of our children and their communities.
  • Enable children to assimilate knowledge through a coherent development of teaching sequences, which promote basic skills and build on prior learning.
  • Provide wide-ranging and enriching opportunities for our children, enabling them to experience much and succeed in a variety of different ways.
  • Deliver the aims of our Mission Statement; being inclusive, inspiring, rooted in justice and respect for others and our world, and enabling all children to achieve to their full potential.
