At Franche Primary we are passionate about connecting our pupils with our whole community. You may have seen the school featured on BBC Breakfast and Radio 4 with our pen pals project; an initiative which has seen our brilliant year 4 pupils writing letters to residents at a local residential home for the elderly. To watch it again please click here. . We also host a regular lunch club for older people, who come in and eat with our children; we run large scale community events, including a very popular bonfire and fireworks, a summer fair, and festive activities, together attended by thousands of people every year.
*We regularly fundraise for community charities and distribute harvest and Christmas hampers, all to help instil in our children that they are part of a wider community.
*We also host a wide range of clubs on our premises outside school hours, including martial arts, fitness, slimming and activity clubs.
*We have strong links with our local churches, community neighbours, among them the local police service, who have a community base on our premises.
*We are lucky to receive so much support from local businesses.
