Thank you for your interest in Templepatrick Primary School.
The main purpose of this letter is to give you an insight into the school, its organisation, personnel and values.
We, in Templepatrick Primary, are justly proud of our good name, our high academic standards and the excellent discipline within the school. We have high expectations of our children, parents and ourselves.
The school aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is flexible, relevant and meaningful to children at Key Stage 1 and 2, so as to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development of each pupil in an environment that is happy, caring and disciplined. Allied to the development of excellence in the curricular subjects, great emphasis is placed upon developing confidence, self-esteem and consideration for others.
Good communication between parents and the school are to everyone’s benefit. If you are worried do come and see us. If you are particularly pleased about some aspect of work do tell us.
It is appropriate that the closing words of this introduction are taken from a recent Department of Education Report where it was noted,
‘The school is a friendly, welcoming community; in general, the relationships are very good. The staff have worked hard together to create a secure and caring environment for learning; the quality of the children’s work displayed in the classrooms is good.’
Department of Education February 1999
