Mission Statement and Aims
St. Patrick's Primary School is committed to the nurturing of the individual child to reach their full potential, celebrating the effort and success together. We strive to achieve this by working in partnership with parents to create an atmosphere of a believing community, reflecting Catholic values.
St. Patrick's is a Catholic school where we strive to make education a shared experience between all interested parties in the community. At St. Patrick's our policy is to develop in our children the capacity to become self confident, contributing members of society, who will have acquired a reasoned set of values, attitudes and beliefs.
In order to develop these qualities in our children we aim to:
Create a happy, stimulating and secure environment for each child.
Offer a well structured, broad and balanced curriculum within the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum, which meets the individual needs of each child.
Develop an awareness of the need for self-discipline, which leads to respect for other people and a sensitivity towards them.
Encourage the children to acquire positive attitudes towards others of differing religious beliefs and an understanding of the wider world in which we live.
Develop a genuine partnership between the home, church and the school.
