St Francis of Assisi has a contemporary approach to learning based on leading educational research. We apply this through the use of flexible learning spaces and teacher expertise, to achieve the best outcomes for every child. Our school library is well-resourced and allows students to develop and pursue a passion for reading. Students have access to a range of reading material and are encouraged to make use of the library for Reading Club and at lunch times. Students are expected to read at home each night, and parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s reading.
Living Our Faith
St Francis of Assisi is a Catholic primary school in the parish of Good Shepherd, Plumpton. Catholic values underpin all areas of our curriculum and school life. We provide a positive environment to support our students to grow in their own self-belief. And we give them the confidence to cope with whatever life might challenge them with.
We instil in our students a sense of social justice and outreach. And we do this through participating in social justice activities, charitable works, and by giving back to their communities. We develop in our students a keen love of God, self, others, and their world.
We recognise that each child is unique and learns in a variety of ways, and at different rates. In some cases, children have specific learning needs and disabilities that require additional support.
We offer a focused literacy support program through Focus160 and a literacy intervention program through Reading Recovery. We also facilitate Extended Mathematical Understanding as our numeracy support program. Each student is challenged and supported to be successful in their learning. Parents are involved in supporting their children and are kept informed regularly of their progress in learning.
Modern Learning Spaces
Each of our classrooms, from Kindergarten to Year 4, have three learning areas connecting to a central space. These grades have wet areas, integrated technology (interactive whiteboards and wireless access) as well as outdoor learning areas. The Year 5 and 6 classrooms are individually setup with integrated technology and devices.
Our school also has many wonderful facilities, such as a basketball court, expansive grass areas and canteen. Our school environment is filled with many plants and shelter areas, which makes coming to school every day enjoyable.
Before and After School Care
Catholic Out of School Hours Care (COSHC) at St Francis is one of many services available at selected schools in the Diocese of Parramatta offering before and after school care during school terms.
Various activities are available for the children at our centres ranging from craft, games, puzzles, cooking, dramatic play, construction and outdoor play.
