“Live, love and learn together in the light of Christ”

On behalf of the school community, I would like to welcome you to our school. This website is designed to give as much information as possible about what we, at St. Francis of Assisi Church of England Primary School, have to offer you and your child.

The school opened in September, 2002, and benefited from a major extension in 2014. We are almost a two form entry school; we have two classes from Reception to Year 5 and are increasing our places by thirty each year. The school enjoys, and benefits from, an extremely close relationship with St Francis of Assisi church, the Diocese of York, and we recently became part of the Dales Multi Academies Trust which includes a range of church schools across Stockton and North Yorkshire. The relationships with all these stakeholders gives the school a unique character and provides excellent support.

We strive to ensure that pupils at St Francis are happy and confident individuals who demonstrate the Christian Values during their time in school and within the community. We use these values to support our teaching of the fundamental British Values and extend these to encompass equality, justice, responsibility, love and respect.

We create a safe and secure, encouraging Christian environment and have high hopes so that children and adults can aspire to greater heights and continue to flourish beyond our school.

We have a positive and fulfilling partnership with children, parents, teachers and all others working within and alongside the school.

If you require more information, would like paper copies of anything that is on here or would like to visit St. Francis, then please contact the School Administrator on 01642 769942 to arrange an appointment.

Thank you for taking an interest in our school.
