St. Colman’s Primary School Mission Statement…

“We aim to create a calm and caring community where teachers teach and children learn. Each child will be encouraged to fulfill his/her
intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, aesthetic and emotional potential. Central to the creation of this environment is a commitment to Christian values,
the recognition of the worth and value of each child and the cultivation of self-respect, so that the child may accept his
appropriate responsibilities and show respect for others. We aim to establish a community wherein pupils, teachers, parents and non-teaching staff enjoy a sense of belonging and have an important part to play.”

Adrain Savage, Principal.
APPROACHES TO LEARNING AND TEACHING

Security

Children have secure relationships with peers and adults in a positively affirming environment which supports their emotional development and which is sensitive to their growing self-esteem and self-confidence.

Practical

Opportunities to be actively involved in practical, challenging play-based learning in a stimulating environment, which takes account of their developmental stage/needs (including those with learning difficulties and the most able children) and their own interests/experiences.

Play

Children having the opportunities to initiate play which capitalises on intrinsic motivation and natural curiosity.

Independence

Children having the choice and exercise autonomy and independence in their learning, and where they are supported in taking risks in their efforts to succeed.

Opportunity

Children are given equality of opportunity to learn in a variety of ways and in different social groupings and are actively involved in planning, carrying out and reflecting on their work.

Support

Supported by trained, enthusiastic and committed professionals who work in partnership with parents and carers and where appropriate, professionals in other fields, to ensure that all achieve their full potential. The Northern Ireland Curriculum Primary Introduction.
