Our School Aims:
In MoiraPrimary School we aim:
The school maintains close and valued links with the Moira and District Community. Associations include local Churches, Library, Council, Neighbourhood Police and other schools.
Personal Development and Mutual Understanding is developed both within the day to day curriculum and through these community links.
An important part of our strong community tradition is to think of others less fortunate. We annually support a number of charities either in kind e.g. the Shoebox Present Appeal or through sponsored events which raise significant amounts for a variety of charities both local and worldwide.
Please refer to the associated document at the bottom of the page.
Educational visits play an integral part of our active and environmental based curricular activities. Your help and encouragement is asked for in supporting such activities. Children from P1 upwards visit local places of interest as part of their programme on The World Around Us.
A Scripture Union weekend takes place each year.
Medicines in School
The medicine must not be brought to school by your child. You must bring the medicine and give it, with instructions, to the class teacher. It will then be stored in a safe place.
If you have any queries regarding medicines in school, please do not hesitate to contact us. It should be understood that medicines are administered in school as a last resort and the conditions above are for the safety of all.
If your child becomes ill or has an accident at school, we will either administer First Aid, if appropriate, or if further attention is required we will contact you, so that you are able to take him/her home or to a doctor.
Please never send a sick child to school. If in doubt, a short stay at home is the best course of action.
It is very important that parents keep us informed about any changes in their contact details. It is also important that you supply us with the names of additional contacts in case of emergency. The health and safety of your child is very important to us and in an emergency we will take essential action to ensure this is protected.
If you have a concern or problem, you should in the first instance, discuss this with the class teacher - the Key Stage Head and/or the Year Group Head may also be included, if thought necessary at this stage. If the issue is not addressed to your satisfaction the Vice Principal and then the Principal should be involved.
The majority of issues are resolved at the first stage of this process, but, in the unlikely event of them still being unresolved after discussion with the Principal, the matter may be referred to the Board of Governors via the Chairman.
