Principal's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website. Its purpose is to give you a taste of school life in Derrygonnelly Primary School. Hopefully, our website will answer some of your questions and help to explain the organisation and policies of the school. It is not intended as a substitute for personal contact with you and we look forward to seeing you in school whenever convenient.

In Derrygonnelly Primary we pride ourselves in providing a caring, family atmosphere in which children are comfortable and happy. It is the belief of myself and our staff that a happy child, confident and safe, learns much more readily.  In this caring environment, our pupils are equipped with the skills, knowledge and disposition to be strong, productive members of their community who contribute in a positive and creative way. We have high expectations for ourselves and our pupils and a determination that each child will achieve his or her full potential. The school is continually responding and adapting to offer the highest quality of education for our children. We have a very dedicated, enthusiastic and highly qualified staff, who see their role very much as a partnership with you and your child.

As a learning community we place great importance upon the uniqueness of each person here and the contribution which we can all make.  For this reason, we offer educational provision far beyond that of the staples of literacy and numeracy.  The Northern Ireland Curriculum is delivered in its entirety throughout the school.  Every child, regardless of their individual strengths and weaknesses should be given opportunities to succeed.  It is only through commitment to this belief that we will continue to be ‘learning together and growing together.’

If you have any concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do all we can to help. Moreover, if you have any suggestions regarding school life please let me know.
