Learning areas:

When we speak of the curriculum in the Catholic school we are talking about the learning experiences that are present for each child, those planned by the staff and those absorbed from our school ethos and environment. Since Christ is the foundation of the whole educational enterprise in a Catholic school, we take into account the uniqueness of each child and his/her individual needs. We develop attitudes and values based firmly on the Gospel message. Our aim is to offer each child a broadly based and appropriately balanced curriculum in line with the Northern Ireland Education Order 1989.

“The teaching observed during the inspection ranged from good to outstanding; the majority of lessons observed were excellent and, at times, the teaching was inspirational”

= Language and Literacy = Mathematics and Numeracy = Personal Development = Physical Education = The World Around Us = Religious Education

needs. Children with S.E.N. are identified as early as possible. We follow the Code of Practice enabling us to effectively meet the needs of the majority of children within mainstream school. However, there are those children who need specialist help from outside bodies. This is gained through referral to, in most cases, the Educational Psychologist.All pupils with SEN are taught the Northern Ireland Curriculum by their class teachers within the normal classroom setting. However, pupils are withdrawn from class at particular times whilst following specific programmes, e.g. an individual or group education programme. Class teachers meet regularly with the Special Needs/Reading Recovery teacher to discuss ways of differentiating activities, of using alternative resources to overcome learning difficulties and for the drawing up of individual or group learning plans (IEP’s or GEP’s). We appreciate the valuable contribution that can be made by parents/guardians to their child’s progress and it is our policy to inform them of all decisions to provide their child with special help and to invite them to work in partnership with the school at every stage.

The new curriculum aims to empower young people to achieve their full potential and to make informed and responsible decisions throughout their lives.

= Tolerance = Respect

Behavioural difficulties is also considered a special need and we follow the same procedures, as laid down by the Code of Practice for learning difficulties, with any pupil who has behavioural problems.

Curriculum objectives are:

Homework | Extra Curricular provision

Extra Curricular provision

Homework:

Extra Curricular Provision:

St. Mary’s Primary School sees much value in children engaging in homework as a means of revising work done, in discovering information unavailable in school, in involving parents in their children’s studies and in the development of good work habits. Against this must be balanced each child’s need for recreation and their development of private interests and hobbies and so the amount of homework should not be excessive. Indicated below are general guidelines on the length of time each year group might be expected to spend on homework.

As well as compulsory subjects St. Mary’s P.S. offers a variety of extra curricular activities, these we consider as essential elements in the overall development of our pupils. These include:

= A quiet place is provided for your child.

To ensure regularity it is school policy that homework will be set each night Monday to Thursday though this may be relaxed for special occasions and around vacations.

= We would encourage parents to help children with their homework but not to do it for them. = Remember, time spent by parents explaining, encouraging, listening, talking and reading to their children, is time well spent.

Some of these activities are only available to children from P4-7, as the structure of the school day does not permit the involvement of infants in all extra-curricular activities.

Homework may not always involve a written task, but may be of a practical or verbal nature. Pupils may be asked to collect or collate information as part of a project. Children will be issued with a number of textbooks, jotters, homework books, etc. please encourage them to keep them neat and tidy, back them with protective covering and refrain from writing on the covers.

A few suggestions: There is no point in undertaking homework unless it is completed to an acceptable standard. Thus try to ensure: = Homework is not left until late in the evening or early in the morning. = The television is turned off so that your child can concentrate on his/her homework. Page

*Teacher Observation *Standardised Tests –English

Assessment is an integral part of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. The main objectives of assessment are to: underpin and inform teaching, and establish what each child knows, can do, and understands. Class teachers assess children in different ways e.g. through observation, as well as oral, practical and written tests.

P4

P5

At the end of each Key Stage (P4 & P7), pupils undergo formal assessment and are attributed levels of attainment in English and Maths. Competency in ICT is also tested at the end of P7, and pupils are accredited levels by CCEA in the different strands of the ICT curriculum.

Pastoral Care and Discipline

St. Mary’s Child Protection Procedures

Pastoral Care:

Child protection procedures:

“ The high quality pastoral care is central to the philosophy of the life and work of the school”

How a parent can express a concern about their child’s welfare:1. I have a concern about my/a child’s safety.

At St. Mary’s pastoral care permeates all aspects of school life. It reflects the values, attitudes, beliefs and practices of our Catholic faith and involves all members of our school community – children parents and all other adults who contribute to the well-being of each child. We strive to create an atmosphere where God’s love is experienced by members of the school community through their relationship with each other; where Christ is the example to all; where each child is helped to develop to his/her full potential. The atmosphere of the school is based upon good relationships between staff/pupils/parents. As staff we work as a team, respecting each other’s roles and recognising individual talents and expertise. We are concerned with the needs and wellbeing of each child and with the approaches and programmes we implement in order to aid his/her personal development. We recognise and value the important role, which parents play in their child’s education. Every effort is made to ensure that parents feel welcome, that they are made aware of the school’s aims objectives and policies and of their child’s individual needs, progress and achievements. We expect you our parents to co-operate fully with us in achieving these goals. If you have a concern about your child’s welfare you can express your concerns using the following Child Care Procedures. “There is a distinctive and caring ethos in the school which is characterised by the excellent relationships between the sensitive and hard-working staff and the happy and enthusiastic children” Page 12

2. I can talk to the class teacher. 3. If I am still concerned, I can talk to the Principal: Mr. Peter McDonnell or Vice-Principal: Mrs. Ann Murphy. 4. If I am still concerned, I can talk or write to the Chairman of the Board of Governors: Mr. Kevin Campbell.

School Discipline: Our school discipline policy is based on the school’s Christian values and beliefs. We aim: To provide a supportive environment which will foster the growth and development of caring and responsible pupils. To create a well-ordered school in which pupils can learn effectively. To develop in our pupils a sense of self-worth and self-control. We expect all our school community to act in a positive and caring way towards each other. To this end we have some school rules for our pupils, which we will implement fairly and consistently. We expect observation of the following rules:= Pupils to obey all adults who work/visit in the school. = During frosty/snowy weather when the buses are unable to travel those children who do not travel to school by bus, should come to school as usual, as the school will be open. = During frosty/snowy weather when the buses are unable to travel, parents who leave their children to school by their own transport should check if school buses are able to complete their routes in the afternoons. If not you should collect them at school at closing times. St Mary’s Primary School Prospectus

= In the event of the school catering staff being unable to work due to power disruption or being unable to travel to their work because of adverse weather conditions then school will close at 12.00 noon. Children who wish to travel on a bus other than the one they normally use for whatever reason must bring a note of explanation. = Children who do not normally travel by school bus cannot be permitted to travel by bus to their friend’s home for birthday parties etc. as they are not covered by insurance. = Children who cannot do PE or swimming, or wish to stay indoors at playtime must bring a note of explanation from parents. Should the unlikely need for pupil suspension or expulsion arise we shall follow the procedures laid down by the Council for Catholic Maintained Schools. Acceptance of admission to the school implies the parent’s acceptance of the school discipline policy. Parents are again reminded that the Principal should be approached first before making contact with the class teacher and it is the Principal who deals with serious and disciplinary matters.

Bullying: Is a persistent desire to hurt others and can be verbal, mental or physical. We need to identify early signs of bullying and children are encouraged to tell a teacher, parent or friend. Incidents not reported or concealed create the greatest problems in dealing with this issue. Parents should watch out for signs of distress, such as repeated illness, damage to clothing etc. If you know bullying is occurring advise the victim that there is nothing wrong with them. Advise them to tell a trusted adult at the school. In an attempt to tackle this problem we need to establish time and places where bullying mostly takes place. From this information we can begin to prepare a plan of action. St Mary’s Primary School Prospectus

Behavioural Difficulties: Behavioural difficulties can be caused by any number of factors, i.e. physical, emotional, psychological or medical. Any child who fails to respond appropriately to the normal disciplinary procedures will, in consultation with parents, undertake a programme of behavioural management, which will follow the stages outlined by the Code of Practice. As already stated, behavioural difficulties are a special educational need.

Awards: It is part of St. Mary’s P.S. policy to emphasise positive approaches to maintaining and improving discipline. This school promotes positive behaviour and learning through use of a variety of strategies:

= Verbal Praise = Gesture = Stamps = Stickers = Star Charts = Team Awards = Certificates = Positive comments in workbooks And on a weekly basis the Principal presents cups to pupils at Assembly. It is the policy of the school to have a high expectation of learning and behaviour. Page 13

Health & Education

Health & Education The drug education programme is delivered through, Science (P6-P7), R.E., P.H.S.E.’ and P.E. Its deliver is cross-curricular. Outside agencies are used to deliver anti-smoking and drinking messages. All P7 pupils are encouraged, through their Confirmation pledge, to abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol. Though St. Mary’s is a Primary School and actual abuse among pupils has never been an issue, we do recognise from experience how vulnerable some of our past pupils have been, as early as their first post primary school year.

Visits from Medical Personnel: During your child’s school years he/she will be seen by:The school dentist: pupils’ teeth are examined and parents are notified if treatment is deemed necessary. The school doctor: examines all new pupils, parents are notified in writing of the doctor’s visit and invited to attend the medical examination. The school nurse: visits the school regularly to check pupils’ weight, height, eyesight, hearing etc.

Health & Education:

Drug Education:

Health Education is incorporated into the school curriculum through Science and Structured Play, we also encourage all pupils to eat healthily. We take part yearly in the S.E.L.B.’s ‘Boost Better Break Award’, in both our Nursery and Primary School.

Drug misuse is a major threat to the pupil population of this country and the Principal and the Board of Governors of St. Mary’s Primary School are committed to protecting and promoting the health and safety of all members of the school. Consequently, they condone neither the misuse of drugs or alcohol.

We encourage all pupils to take a healthy option for their morning break, either a piece of fruit or a sandwich with an appropriate healthy filling. The purpose of this is not to prevent pupils from eating what they like, but to promote their health and well-being. Poor dental health is particularly high among young children in this locality.

Senior Girls: Mrs. Ann Murphy and Miss Ciara Crawley have been identified to attend to the needs of senior girls. Those girls who have begun menstruation may use the facilities installed in the toilet adjacent to the staffroom. Page 14

Our aims are: = To promote the health and well-being of our pupils = To help acquire the social and personal skills needed to combat the need for the use of drugs = To provide pupils with factual information on the harm that misuse can cause, both physical and emotional = To help develop an understanding of the consequences and implications of the misuse of drugs; physical, social and morally.

Children who have their ears pierced may only wear stud earrings in school. Links with Other Agencies:

Head lice:

We see the school as a vital part of our parish and take every opportunity to contribute to the life of the parish, through liaison with our priests and church organisations.

Unfortunately head lice are a problem in all schools. Dealing with the infestation can be time consuming and stressful to parents and children alike. Please check your child’s hair regularly and inform the school if you have found an infestation. Parents can help by ensuring that long hair is tied back securely.

We have established close links with our local secondary schools in order to ease each child’s transition to second level education. Visits for the P7 children are arranged to their new schools during the summer term.

Medication: If your child is required to take medicine during the school day parents/guardians may call to the school office at an appropriate time to administer it.

Conclusion Road Safety Education: One of the greatest social problems in our society today is the number of people, many of them children, who are killed or injured on the road in N.I. each year. The Governors and staff of this school believe that we have an important role to play in educating for life, in a very real sense and see road safety education as a basic life skill. We intend to promote this ideal through cross-curricular themes and by playing a full part in approved road safety schemes. We recognise that a separate funding is available from the S.E.L.B.’s Road Safety Branch for this.

Conclusion: We are a Catholic school. We believe in Catholic education for faith. The work of parents, teachers and priests in that education is a work of co-operation with God. We should always remember that:= Every child is different = He/she looks different = He/she behaves differently = He/she develops at different rates = He/she learns in different ways. FOR HIS/HER SAKE DON’T COMPARE HIM/ HER WITH OTHER CHILDREN.

Now that you have read our School Prospectus, I hope you will have some idea of the rich and varied life your child will have whilst attending our school. You can be assured that his/her well-being will be our concern at all times during his/her school years. We hope your child will be happy with us here in St. Mary’s – that happiness, which we believe, is the basic right of every child. I look forward to welcoming you and your child to the different events which occur throughout the school year. May God Bless You. Yours sincerely,

Peter McDonnell Principal
