Our Mission Statement

Tobermore Primary School is a place where everyone is valued and cared for as an individual and where children are at the centre of all we do. We endeavour to provide a caring and trusting atmosphere, in which children and teachers can work happily together.  We allow the uniqueness in each individual to flourish through a happy, safe and stimulating environment where everyone can meet their personal goals and full potential: intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, morally and spiritually. We believe that parents, staff, pupils, governors and members of the local community need to work together and co-operate with each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support, for the benefit of all. Our school motto, ‘Together We Learn, Together We Achieve’ promotes this.

We aim:

  • To create a happy, healthy school in which everyone feels valued.
  • To provide a caring, secure and stimulating environment in which to educate each child intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, morally and physically, so that he/she can reach their full potential, moving on to the next stage of their education with confidence and high self-esteem, and being prepared for their adult role in society.
  • To ensure that all teaching is of a high standard, enabling children to maximise their potential in all subjects.
  • To provide an inclusive curriculum, which is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated to each child’s needs.
  • To provide equality of opportunity for all children, regardless of age, gender, race, creed, culture, physical disability or special educational need.
  • To have expectations of high standards of both achievement and behaviour.
  • To encourage children to be self-motivated and develop a positive attitude towards learning so that they can respond to challenges, develop lively, enquiring minds and apply themselves to tasks with self-discipline and an increasing sense of responsibility for their own actions.
  • To foster an ethos in which children co-operate with each other, develop an understanding of right and wrong, and feel and show respect and tolerance towards others.
  • To foster in children a sense of responsibility and caring for the school environment and to become aware of the global community and of how wider environmental issues may involve them.
  • To involve parents in their children’s education and encourage strong links between home and school.
