Franche in the Community

Heart of the Community, with Community at its Heart

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.

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.
