A message from Claire Fortey
Hello, my name is Claire Fortey and I am lucky enough to be Executive Headteacher here at St Francis. It is my pleasure to introduce you to our school, a place where learning and fun go hand in hand, where children and adults work in harmony and where everyone achieves.
I am hugely proud of our school and all that we accomplish together, we are well known for the exceptional care and support we provide for all members of our family and our excellence in teaching and learning. This has been formally recognised by Ofsted – in 2008 we were graded “Outstanding” and in July 2013 we were awarded Outstanding in 3 out of the 4 areas of judgement, giving us a “Good” overall grade.
This website offers you the opportunity to find out a little more about life here at St Francis, and if you are a prospective parent we warmly invite you to come and have a look around and meet us in person.
