Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to lauch our new website. I hope you enjoy looking at it and that it gives you a flavour of learning and teaching in our school.

I was appointed as Headteacher at St. Francis’ Primary School in 2010 and I have been fortunate in being able to create a hardworking and creative school team who keep the children at the centre of everything they do.

The school was chosen as a venue to host a recent Curriculum for Excellence Management Board Meeting in September 2016 and the Depute First Minister John Swinney recognised our approaches to teaching literacy through the expressive arts as innovative and excellent practice.

I am very proud of our well established House families: Hawkhill, Huntershall, Jewel and Jubilee all of whom consistently ‘Raise the Barre’ in our events across the school year and in their approach to demonstrating our school values on a daily basis.

Our website should also give you a snapshot of the wider achievement of the school and our ambition to create life long learners.

Please do let us know what you think and remember you can follow us @stfrancisps.
