Welcome to St Francis of Assisi Catholic Technology College
Welcome to St Francis of Assisi Catholic Technology College. Our faith is at the heart of everything we do and our motto is “Nil satis optimum”, only the best is enough. As a faith community, we have high expectations of ourselves.
Adults and students alike take a great pride in their work and in our great school. We have as our patron saint, St Francis of Assisi, whose brown religious habit is reflected in the colour of our uniform. Our students wear the Cross on their ties and blazers showing that they are ambassadors for the Catholic Church as well as for our school.
We work together as a team and encourage our young people to be proactive and have a voice in the development of our community. We respect and value every individual and celebrate their uniqueness and their personal contribution to our school. Our website offers you a glimpse of life at St Francis as well as a wealth of information and support for our students and their parents. Please let us know if there is anything you would like us to add to strengthen our partnership with you and regularly check our website for important notices and events.
Learning from the example of St. Francis we celebrate and nurture each other’s God-given gifts within a caring and safe Christian family. We are committed to providing an excellent Catholic education for all, in partnership with parents and the wider community.
Our Catholic school provides opportunities for every member of this community to learn more about faith, and celebrate it daily, growing closer to Christ and one another.
Every member of this school community is valued, and entitled to equality of opportunity. We believe that every individual has God-given talents, and are committed to providing the opportunities for them to achieve their academic and physical potential.
We are committed to a strong and supportive partnership between pupils, parents and staff, promoting a continuation of the close links between primary Schools and the wider parish communities.
We endeavour to provide an environment in which self-discipline, respect and care for others is evident. Pupils are encouraged to take pride in their appearance and surroundings, and feel privileged to act as ambassadors for the school.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Technology College fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection. Our Child Protection Policy applies to all staff, governors and volunteers working in our Catholic College. The five main elements to our policy are to:
- Ensure we practise safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.
- Raise awareness of child protection issues and equip children with the skills needed to keep them safe.
- Develop and implement procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.
- Support students who have been abused in accordance with the agreed child protection plan.
- Establish a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
