St Francis Catholic Primary School a Voluntary Academy

Together we are exploring our special gifts; Together we are growing towards God.


‘Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.’ - Nelson Mandela


At St Francis we believe that Physical Education enables all children to succeed and excel. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to thrive in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.  We encourage all children to develop a long term active healthy lifestyle that allows them to fulfil their full potential. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferable life skills such as fairness, resilience and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.
