St Francis Church of England School


"Staff described working at this school as being like a family".

OFSTED, December 2021

A warm welcome to St Francis Church of England School- a school for 300 pupils age 3-11 in East Oxford. Our school is a happy and exciting place to learn where diversity is celebrated and efforts and individual strengths are recognised.

We are proud of our inclusive approach and work hard to provide a nurturing environment in which all children feel safe and motivated to reach their potential, whatever their starting point. Everything we do centres around our Parish meta-narrative - JOHN 10:10B 'living life to the fullest' which encompasses and asks us to reflect deeply about how we might best live our lives so they are the richest and hold the greatest meaning. We aim for all pupils to leave us as confident, independent yet co-operative learners, ready for the next phase of their education.

All members of the school community are valued and we are keen to work closely with parents as partners, from the Nursery through to Year 6. Together we can give every child the best start that they deserve. This website is just an introduction. If you would like to visit us, meet pupils and staff to find out more, you would be extremely welcome. We'd love to show you our wonderful school.
