From the Head Teacher, Mr Capper

Welcome to Anahilt Primary School!

A school to which children, parents, staff and members of the Board of Governors are personally committed. It is a happy and welcoming place where children’s learning and personal development is central.

Set amidst the drumlins of County Down, the school has been in existence for over 200 years. While we are very proud of our rich history we have:
• modern premises
• staff who keep up to date with modern educational developments and
• children who are involved in learning not only for the present but for their future

The partnership that is fostered between children, parents and staff can be demonstrated by the aims of the school and the pupil charter. Parents were consulted on the aims while the members of staff implement these. The pupils, in consultation with their teachers, devised the pupil charter.

This Web Site can only give you a flavour of the school. To find out more you are invited to visit the school and see for yourself the enthusiasm and commitment we all have for the school.

Our School Vision: Helping children think for themselves

Our Mission Statement:
The purpose of this school is to:
Develop the intellectual, physical, aesthetic, spiritual and social characteristics of children in order to enhance the quality of their lives, both in the present and in the future.

Pastoral Care Policy

In Anahilt Primary School we have a primary responsibility for the care, welfare and

safety of the pupils in our charge. We will carry out this duty through our pastoral

care policy, which aims to provide a caring, supportive and safe environment. We

value individual children for their unique talents and abilities and provide opportunities

for them to learn and develop their full potential. We seek to protect children by

helping them

· learn about risks of possible abuse

· recognise unwelcome behaviour in others

· acquire confidence and skills needed to keep them safe.

Before being appointed all staff (and volunteers) are subject to appropriate background

checks which are carried out by the PSNI on behalf of the SEELB The staff have also

adopted a Code of Practice for our behaviour towards pupils. This Code is set out in

the Appendix to this policy statement.

The staff of this school seek to ensure that children are safe from harm while in their

care, either on the school premises or on an educational visit.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child provides that

‘children have the right to be protected from all forms of violence: they must be

kept safe from harm; and they must be given proper care by those looking after

them.’ Further ‘when adults or organisations make decisions which affect

children they must always think first about what would be best for the child.’

To ensure the school aim is implemented all staff have been made aware of the SEELB

Policy and Procedures. The Principal acts as the Designated Teacher (in his absence

this is delegated to the Deputy Designated Teacher or other senior teacher in her


The staff in the school have a legal and statutory duty to report any incidences

which cause them concern. It is, therefore, important that parents inform the school

when a child has been injured. (The teachers may, however, still be required to pass

on any concerns, even if a note has been written.)

A member of staff expressing concern will inform the Designated Teacher, who makes

contact with the SEELB’s designated Officer and the local Health and Social Services.

School staff are not permitted to become involved in investigations - hence the need

to contact Social Services. In all circumstances the prime purpose is to ensure

that a child is protected fully from harm. Many enquiries/investigations show that

the child’s injuries have been caused by genuine accidents.

The staff in the school have a legal and statutory duty to report any incidences

which cause them concern.
