St Francis Church of England Aided Junior School

"To be the best we can be"

I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed Headteacher for St Francis'. I'm so happy that we can continue to work together to help every child become the 'best they can be,' by continuing the hard work of our previous Headteacher, Mrs Wilkinson. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO SCHOOL BEFORE 8:40am. Y3/4 will enter via the side entrance, Y5/6 via the main entrance. Our Out of Hours Covid-19 reporting line is 07768 688785. Please check the Key Information tab on a regular basis for updated risk assessments. Thank you for your continued support, Mrs. Lakey.

Bangaldeshi Visitors Wave Goodbye

The school were sad to say goodbye to Mr Romendu Day and Mr Murshet who were visiting tis week from our partner school, Chrisitan Memorial High, in Cox's Bazaar, Bangaldesh. The visitors brought colour and curiosity to the school for a week whilst they observed lessons, ate lunch with the children and enjoyed a special "Class Assembly" by Y5 on Ghandi and Rights of freedom. They packed alot into their trip, from visiting other schools in the Aycliffe/ Bishop Auckland cluster to Durham Cathedral and University, the Bowes Museum and Teesdale, Raby Castle, Woodham Comprehensive and also a visit to County Hall for afternoon tea. We are sure that when our two teachers, Mrs Lakey and Mrs Cooper, visit Bangaldesh themselves next month they too will come back buzzing with ideas and ways that we can use artefacts and information to enahnce our children's teachning and learning experiences.
Good times indeed!
