What Our Pupils, Parents & Staff Say

I love that we have trips away, like Boreatton Park for Year 4. I feel lucky.



Mr Simpson is always happy and makes us smile when he comes into RLJ. He helps everyone



Franche is awesome! I love being at school with my friends and my teachers are really kind and helpful.



Enrichment time has led to our sons spending time at home happily Manga drawing and playing chess together (and teaching their parents!) Inspiring and enriching indeed.

Sue (in the office) is warm and compassionate, a much appreciated lady.

“For a number of years I have worked as a TA at Franche Community Primary School and I can honestly say I LOVE MY JOB!
“When I decided to change my career Franche helped me to retrain. They were able to offer me voluntary work whilst I studied for my level 2 NVQ in Supporting Teaching and Learning in schools. I was then able to gain employment with Franche and continue studying for my level 3. My job as a TA has also allowed me to transfer my existing skills from management and training in the finance sector.
“I originally chose Franche because I had a daughter who attended this school and as a parent I was more than happy with the support, education and progress she was making.
“My working day is a real pleasure with all of the children I come into contact with and the great team I work with.``

“Franche is a wonderful, friendly place to be. The staff team are just wonderful; they are all fantastic, hardworking and very supportive. The children are a credit to their parents, so polite and well mannered.
“It gives you a sense of belonging when the children run up to you with beaming smiles telling you their news!”


Children’s Supervisor, First Aider and Swimming Assistant

“I have worked at Franche Community Primary School for over 20 years and have seen the school evolve considerably during that time.
“Many changes have taken place in education over the years but Franche has always embraced change positively. 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 advisors.
“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, hardworking school with high expectations. Everyone has a voice and everyone is listened to. All in all, it is a great place to work!”
