Child Protection Policy June 2015

We in St Mary’s Primary School, Teemore have a responsibility for the Pastoral Care, general welfare and safety of the pupils in our care.  We will carry out this duty by providing a caring, supportive and safe environment, where each child is valued for his or her unique talents and abilities, and in which all our young people can learn and develop to their full potential.  All staff, teaching and non-teaching, should be alert to the signs of possible abuse, and should know the procedures to be followed.  This Policy sets out guidance on the action which is required where abuse or neglect of a child is suspected, and outlines referral procedures within our school.

eSafety Policy 2015

In St. Mary’s Primary School we believe that the Internet and other digital technologies are very powerful resources which can enhance and potentially transform teaching and learning when used effectively and appropriately. The Internet is an essential element of 21st century life for education, business and social interaction.  This school provides pupils with opportunities to use the excellent resources on the Internet, along with developing the skills necessary to access, analyse and evaluate them.

This eSafety policy sets out measures taken by St. Mary’s Primary School to ‘mitigate risk through reasonable planning and actions’ (DENI, 2013, 2.2) in areas of internet technology and other electronic communication mediums such as mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. The policy has been drawn up by the staff of the school under the leadership of the Principal and ICT coordinator.

The World Around Us Policy

This policy is based on the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum document (2007) which is the starting point for planning a school curriculum that meets the needs of individual children. Within these requirements we at St. Mary’s P.S. aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum so as to prepare our children for a rapidly changing world.

Our school is a rural school of 89 pupils. It is located at in the hamlet of Teemore and has adequate school grounds for the pupils to explore their immediate environment. Our teachers utilise at every opportunity the many sites and areas of interest in our locality including Derrygonnelly Field Centre, Florencecourt House and Gardens, The Agricultural College, Waterways Ireland Canal Network, Leitrim Village etc.  We have also developed an attractive area at the rear of the school which we use as an outdoor classroom.
