Welcome to St. Francis Catholic Primary School 
We are delighted that you are taking the time to find out about our wonderful school.  
St Francis is a vibrant, happy and friendly school in Nailsea, North Somerset. We are a one-form entry school where children, their family members and staff are all valued as individuals and where everyone (of all faiths and none) is allowed the opportunity to flourish and given chances to excel in work, life and play. 
We expect all in our community to give of their best in their learning, in their relationships and in the care they show to others and the world. We combine purposeful and effective learning in English and Maths with a varied and creative curriculum, which includes sports, music, art, design and performance. We use our beautiful school grounds to enhance the children’s learning. RE is a core subject and the children are able to explore faith through the very rich spiritual life of the school, the rhythm of the church’s year (Lent, Easter, Advent and Christmas) and through their RE lessons. 
We have strong links with our two parish churches, other local schools and with our community. We warmly welcome visits from prospective parents and these can be arranged through contacting our school office on 01275 855373. 


Academy News 
We are delighted to announce that St Francis’ School became an academy on 1 March 2022, joining two other schools in the newly formed Cardinal Newman Education Trust. 
As a new academy, our school loses its latest Ofsted rating (2019) and looks forward to a return visit from Ofsted within the next 2 years. 
We continue to work for the good of our pupils as we begin an exciting new era for the school and its community.
