We aim to provide a safe, appropriate and happy learning environment for each of our pupils and staff members.  We also aim to build positive relationships between pupils, parents and staff through the development of a teamwork approach to acceptable Christian behaviour.

 

 

Community links

We have fostered many community links, both locally and further afield.  We have visiting ‘buddies’ for science, reading and maths from local businesses.

We have close links with St. Vincent de Paul, Peter McVerry Trust, Trocaire and Laura Lynn Foundation, where we have fundraising events, in school, for these charitable causes.

We have taken part in the Peace Proms cross boarder links concert.
