St Francis Braintree

Catholic Life of the School

Our mission in serving the local Catholic parish of Braintree, is to offer Catholic education, spiritual and moral teaching to the children in our care.

Religious education lies at the core of everything that we do. We devote 10% of curriculum time to the teaching of RE and follow the ‘Come and See' scheme of work from Reception to Year 6. 

Collective acts of worship for the whole school take place four times a week and in individual classes on the remaining day. Our parish priest, Father David, is a regular visitor to school celebrating Mass, visiting classes and conducting the Sacrament of Reconciliation.. In addition to this, prayer is important at all times both collectively and individually. We are very fortunate to have our own Peace Garden where classes can come to pray, reflect and worship


 Our Mission Statement

Following in the footsteps of St Francis; we love God, learning together as a community, using our hands, our heads and our hearts.




We place Christ at the centre of all that we do and offer all things to God.
