Welcome to St Francis RC Primary School, Manchester!
The Mission Statement is at the heart of all that we do in school.We aim through the fulfilment of our mission and ethos to provide a Catholic education whilst embracing pupils of mixed cultures and faiths without any barriers existing. As a Catholic school we value, respect and love everyone. This impacts on everything we do and ensures our ethos is “tangible”
Our Mission Statement
As a Catholic School, we come together to celebrate our love of God and each other. Through prayer we follow Jesus’ example of love, forgiveness and truth.
We are a safe and happy community where every individual is supported and encouraged to achieve their targets.
We believe that with God, everything is in our reach.
Our school is a voluntary aided Roman Catholic Primary School serving the parish of Sacred Heart and St. Francis, Gorton. It is located in an inner city area of Manchester which is well below average in all socio – economic aspects. Pupils come from a wide variety of backgrounds with parents ranging from those in full time professional employment to those whose families have been unemployed for several generations.
There are currently 260 pupils on roll. We feel privileged to have 49% percent of our pupils who speak English as an additional language and 64% of pupils from an ethnic minority group. Our children speak 38 different languages between them.
We are proud of the fantastic progress our children make and the wonderful relationships we have with our families. We have recently been invited to be an EAL hub school so that we can share our successes with other schools.
We are always looking to find creative and exciting ways to bring learning alive. We think it is imperative that our children are given new experiences and are taught through fun and laughter wherever possible. We try to ensure that we celebrate every individual success and foster a sense of family and belonging with our school community.
