We encourage our pupils to be




 respectful of others.


In school we promote team spirit as well as individual achievement. We encourage each pupil to develop high standards of personal behaviour.


As parents we would ask you to help us by:



·       supporting the maintenance of good discipline in school and promoting in your child good codes of conduct with regard to behaviour, uniform and homework;


·       ensuring your child attends school regularly and brings the necessary equipment;


·       developing and maintaining channels of communication with school.



We devise an individual support plan for any pupil having consistent difficulties in managing their behaviour.
























All pupils are transported to and from school by E.A. (South Eastern Region) Details of travel arrangements are forwarded by the Transport Officer to parents at the beginning of each school year.


Transport Office Telephone number: 028 90566570.




If there is a change to transport due to an unforeseen circumstance, please contact the school secretary Mrs Mc Dowall.


Parents must inform the Transport Office and the school secretary of any change of address.


To ensure a pleasant and safe journey to and from school, good behaviour on transport is encouraged. Children should remain seated until they have reached their destination and the bus/taxi has stopped. In the interests of safety, parents wishing to collect their child at or before 3 p.m. should inform the class teacher in writing.
