Information about the school

St Francis is a popular, inclusive, well- equipped primary school serving a wide Catholic community in Maidstone and beyond. We are a large two form entry school with over 400 pupils on roll. The school is housed in a modern building which includes an open plan library and up to date computer suite. All classes are well resourced and have interactive whiteboards and visualisers.

We are a hardworking, dedicated and enthusiastic team described by Ofsted as “an impressive professional workforce, committed to ensuring that all pupils make progress”. We are committed to enabling all children to achieve the very best they can through a dynamic, creative and questioning curriculum. Staff development is always focused on ensuring outstanding teaching and learning, with challenge for all.

Our recent Ofsted inspection in September 2018, judged the school to be good in all areas.

Tolerance, mutual respect and understanding are central to the excellent relationships and standards of behaviour within the school.

Our children are energetic and friendly and enjoy taking responsibility for themselves and others. We believe in developing the whole child in a happy and safe environment where high expectations of learning and discipline ensure that all are able to achieve academically, spiritually and socially.

We provide an outstanding Catholic education with many opportunities for our children to become immersed in the liturgical life of the school and our parish through daily assemblies, masses and other services.

Our community is enriched through strong relationships with all stakeholders – children, staff, parents, governors and friends work together to secure the best outcomes for our children. You would receive a very warm welcome to our school community.
