"Building on the past, learning for the present, preparing for the future" 
Welcome to Richmount Primary School’s website. 
This website has been designed to provide you with useful information and give you some insight into the educational opportunities available in this school 
I hope the information will be of benefit and interest. We believe that our pupils are our greatest assets and together form our most convincing advertisement. 
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with due emphasis given to academic achievement, basic skills, the opportunity for physical development and a social and moral environment which encourages the principles of honesty and integrity, self confidence and a consideration of others. 
A close partnership between home and school is highly valued and is fostered in numerous ways throughout the school year. 
Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have. 
Yours sincerely 
Mr. M. Hall 
Coffee Morning  
P6/7 would like to thank all the parents, family and friends who supported them in their coffee morning project for Angel Wishes. This was carried out as part of our class Money Wise topic. 
The pupils really enjoyed planning, preparing and serving today and we will let you know in due course how much money we managed to raise. 
Parents should not bring their vehicles onto the school grounds at any time, especially at the beginning or end of the school day. A minority of parents have driven their cars up onto the school playground while pupils have been walking into school. This has been most prevalent on wet days. This is obviously a very serious matter involving the safety of our pupils. A number of parents have raised concerns and brought this to my attention. In future the school gate will remain closed in an effort to solve this problem. As you know I have been lobbying the Education Authority to provide a drop off area and increased parking and progress is being made on this issue. Thank you in anticipation of your support. 
Dear Parent 
Please may we ask for your co-operation in an important matter. 
One of our pupils is receiving medical treatment following a bone marrow transplant, which puts them at risk if they are exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. 
Please let us know immediately if your child is suspected of having measles. 
Our pupil is also at risk from chicken pox and would need to be given an injection within 3 days of contact. If your child is suspected of having chicken pox, you should let us know. 
It is also important that you let us know if there is shingles in your household. 
Your child is not at any risk from this situation. However, the health and wellbeing of our pupil who is at risk does depend on the co-operation of all other parents and we hope you can help us. 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home.
