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

Football – The school’s Boys’ football team that competed at the Mid-Ulster Schools’ Football Association Spring Festival on 7th April at Drumgor Primary School. The boys acquitted themselves very well in their matches against Dickson, Seagoe, Poyntzpass, Carrick and Mullaglass Primary Schools. The team’s captain, Zach Woolsey was outstanding both in attack and defence and was a great example to the rest of the team.  
Well done Zach! 

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.
