Welcome to Kilkeel Primary School

Our Educational Vision Statement

An Old French Proverb Says:

“A child is like a fire to be lit; not a vase to be filled”

In Kilkeel Primary school we aim to give our children an education that is best suited to their age and ability.

We strive to help our pupils acquire skills and develop abilities that will help them to prepare for adult life in an ever-changing world.

However, we also see a child’s time at primary school as a special period in his/her life, a time to value in its own right, a time to explore an exciting world and to experience love and care.

Kids in Playground

We aim to provide a happy, secure and Christian atmosphere in which our children can learn effectively. In a consistent and secure environment the children will be treated with respect as unique individuals. In return they will be expected to show respect to their fellow pupils, teachers and all other adults within our school community. Respect for others and for all human life is paramount and at the core of our efforts to develop in our children an understanding of God’s love.

Teaching and learning will take place in a structured and disciplined manner with high expectations for success from both teacher and learner. All pupils will be encouraged to apply themselves to maximise their potential. The role of the teacher is now that of mentor, facilitator, coach, tutor and critical friend. We believe that all staff need to be well trained, motivated and supported.

Our programmes of study will be balanced and broadly based and seek to promote the intellectual, moral, social, physical, spiritual and emotional development of our pupils. Where and when it is judged appropriate, innovative ideas will be introduced with care and enthusiasm.

Above all, we want every child to be happy, to do their best, be recognised and valued for themselves, and to enjoy their time in Kilkeel Primary School.
