ST FRANCIS SCHOOL
Welcome to our School
It is a pleasure and privilege to welcome you to our website. St Francis is a special school for pupils and students aged between 3 and 19 who have a wide range of severe, complex and profound and multiple learning difficulties. All of our pupils and students have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The most recent OFSTED inspection (February 2018) rated the school Good across all indicators. We are delighted to be federated with Heathfield School, who are situated next door to us.
We pride ourselves on being a happy and caring community where all pupils and students are valued equally. Our vision and values statements reflect our ambition and commitment to fully prepare our students for a successful transition to the next stage of their learning. Our highly motivated staff team work in conjunction with multi-agency professionals to offer the highest quality provision to ensure we meet the needs of our young people and families. A personalised and caring approach to learning is at the heart of what we offer at St Francis, and we have the highest expectations of every pupil and student.
We hope very much that you enjoy looking though our website. To find out more please do arrange to visit us. The staff, pupils and students will be delighted to show you our school.
