The Northern Ireland Primary Curriculum
We aim to provide a broad, balanced curriculum for each child which is delivered through the use of a variety of

The World Around Us - Geography, History, Science and Technology skills and knowledge are developed through this area
The Arts including Art and Design, Music and Drama
Personal Development and Mutual Understanding - this focuses on emotional development, empathy, equality and understanding of local and global issues.
Physical Development - each child is given the opportunity to develop a range of physical skills and will take part in class team games and competitive activities while understanding the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
Religious Education - the teaching of Religious Education is non-denominational in nature whilst being Christian in content. We link this with PDMU to develop tolerance, understanding and equality.

and Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities. Parents are informed if their child requires extra help and are encouraged to discuss their child’s progress with the class teacher and Special Needs Coordinator as and when
The school is staffed by well qualified and enthusiastic teachers who are dedicated to providing the best education for your child. Pupils work as individuals, members of groups and as members of a whole class, depending on the nature of the activity. With a range of these approaches, the teacher is able to create opportunities when your child can benefit, on an individual basis, from the teacher’s expertise and professional guidance.
