"Building on the past, learning for the present, preparing for the future"
It is the policy of the Board of Governors that the pupils of Richmount Primary School shall receive a broad and balanced curriculum which aims to:
a) Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical developments of all the pupils.
b) Prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
The Pastoral Care dimension of the school deals with the physical and emotional needs of each individual child. The caring role of the teachers in the school is evident in all aspects of the child's school life. A very pleasant family atmosphere exists in the school. The excellent relationships that exist in school help provide an environment in which the pupils feel happy and safe. Within such an environment effective learning takes place and each child is able to realise its full potential. The school places great importance on involving the parents in the education of their children and keeping them informed as fully as possible about the progress being made by their children. The teacher/parent interview programme provides an opportunity where a child's strengths and weaknesses can be discussed and when problems arising either at home or in school can be addressed. Parents, pupils and staff all contribute significantly to the spirit of co-operation evident throughout the school. It is the co-operation and teamwork which gives Richmount its distinctive character and special atmosphere.
