Greetings from the Family of Franche!
We are a very popular community primary school in Kidderminster. We provide an outstanding start to school life for our youngest Tots & Nursery children and a creative and inspiring curriculum for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils.
Our fantastic facilities include our own swimming pool, playing fields and forest school.
We also offer excellent wraparound care for children from 3 months to 11 years, open 7am until 6pm, 50 weeks a year, including a breakfast club, after school care and holiday club. We also offer family support and services for children aged 0-5 at Chestnuts@Franche, our community setting within the school site.
Whether you are a parent of a pupil, or are considering joining us, we hope you’ll find all the information you need here.
Mrs Lizzie Dixon
“We would like to thank you for everything you have done for our children. You have given them a wonderful start in life and that is thanks to the wonderful teachers. Not only have they received a wonderful education, they also have wonderful memories that will stay with them their whole lives. During their time at Franche they have been told to aim for the stars. This gift is for all the pupils to aim for their own star: 'Franche Primary Star'. It is with much sadness that the last of our own children leave Franche this year, but with all of the help and support they have received they are ready for the next stage of their lives.” Parent Voice, 2019

Our broad and balanced curriculum supports and promotes British Values and our very own personalised Franche Values: Family, Respect, Aspiration, Nurture, Creativity, Health and Enjoyment. Our aim is to provide rich opportunities and real-life experiences for all pupils to foster their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We achieve this by embedding key curriculum skills and knowledge within engaging, purposeful and child-led topics to ensure the best possible outcomes for all.
