School Aims

In developing these aims, we hope to develop each child to his/her fullest potential as an individual, a contributor to society and a future contributor to the economy and the environment.

We aim to:

  • Provide all of our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum based on core curriculum objectives of the NI curriculum taking account of the differing needs, learning styles and abilities of each child.
  • Provide for the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of each child in an environment, which is both safe and welcoming and which respects and values the individuality of each child.
  • Provide our pupils with a structured religious programme within a secure and caring environment, which will enrich their Catholic faith, in partnership with parents, parish and community.
  • Help our pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and practical abilities and the will and opportunity to use them.
  • Foster close, friendly and co-operative links with home, local community, neighbouring schools and other support agencies to the benefit of our pupils.
  • Develop in our pupils a sense of citizenship with respect for oneself and others and encourage self-control, self-confidence, co-operation, independence and high personal standards of work and behaviour.
  • Ensure that our pupils gain the highest possible standard relevant to the individual child in oracy, literacy and numeracy, which will adequately prepare them for their future roles in society.
  • Instill in our pupils a good general knowledge of the environment and culture both in their own community and the wider world.
  • Provide many opportunities for all pupils to experience success and recognise themselves as valued members of our school and community.
