Caring Brings Success

Primary Department

Welcome to the Primary Department

The pupils of the school department are engaged in the Northern Ireland curriculum. Each pupil accesses the curriculum through his individual education plan, which is drawn up by the teacher and focuses on the strengths and needs of the individual pupil. One of the cornerstones of our curriculum is the provision of a positive, secure and active learning environment, and this is our aim within each of the classes in our department.

Experiences and opportunities are an essential element to the learning process and throughout the year the pupils have had a range of varied and interesting activities, both school based and in the community.


Here are just a few events the Department is involved in: 

  • Horse riding (RDA)
  • Disability Sports NI competitors
  • Red Nose Day/Children in Need (fundraising discos)
  • Award winning entry at Bangor Drama Festival
  • Christmas and Halloween parties
  • Creative Paths Art projects
  • Class visit to HMS Bangor

As well as all these special events we are also involved in daily activities using our excellent school facilities.
