As an ex-pupil, and former resident of the Franche community I volunteered in March 2005 to work at Franche Primary School as a Business Studies student with a view to gaining an insight into working in a busy office environment. Thirteen years later, I’m still here!

The Franche team are the most supportive, dedicated, hardworking team of people I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside. I have had numerous opportunities which have led me to develop my career from receptionist to my current role as Office Manager. More recently, I qualified as a School Business Manager. I really enjoy the sociable extra-curricular activities that Franche provides and encourages all employees to join in with, including the annual summer fair and bonfire night events. I am very proud to be part of the family of Franche Primary School.

Training & Development

We are a highly respected and sought after location for those considering or taking part in teacher training or who want to develop their teaching career. We offer a number of placements for students and provide them with mentor support throughout their training and early teaching career. We also provide excellent career development opportunities.

As a larger primary school we are able to employ specialist subject practitioners and lead teachers in a range of disciplines, including Maths, English, PE and Music. They cascade their experience and skills through the teaching network. We also work in partnership with a national teaching school.

I have worked at Franche Community Primary School for more than 27 years and have seen the school evolve considerably during that time. The school has a ‘can do’ culture and seeks to embed new ideas and initiatives rigorously with first class training opportunities, drawing from a wealth of teacher expertise and leaders in a wide range of curriculum areas, to external providers and advisers. Staff work closely in year teams and phases. There is a good support network within year groups from both senior and middle leaders. My years at Franche have been enjoyable and rewarding. There is a high level of respect amongst all staff and I have made many lifelong friends along the way. It is a happy, vibrant, hard working school with high expectations. All in all, it is a great place to work!
