Mission Statement

Pond Park Primary School aims to provide a secure, caring environment which will maximise each child's potential and promote his/her personal development.  The school places equal emphasis on pastoral care and academic progress.

In order to achieve this we seek;

  • To provide a balanced, stimulating and relevant curriculum through high quality teaching and learning which fulfils the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum.
  • To develop each child spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically through the day-to-day running of the school.
  • To encourage qualities of independence, initiative and self-confidence in each child.
  • To help pupils develop and celebrate an understanding of their own culture and promote respect for that of others.
  • To provide the highest standards of pastoral care and child protection.
  • To develop effective home/school links so that children can benefit from their teachers and parents/guardians working in partnership.
  • To establish and maintain acceptable forms of behaviour within a secure and positive school environment, encouraging self-discipline and an understanding of rights and responsibilities.
  • To develop children's awareness of local and wider community and of the effects that their actions can have on both.
  • To maintain on-going links with local pre-school provision and post-primary schools to which pupils transfer.
  • To show commitment, through being a healthy school and supporting healthy children who are better able to learn and develop.
  • To make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of the school for both staff and pupils and to engage with the wider community.
