"The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is highly effective.  The broad and varied range of learning experiences contributes well to the children's academic, social and emotional development.  The staff are very responsive to the children's welfare and tend well to individual learning needs.  The children's behaviour is exemplary and the school operates in an atmosphere which is supportive, mutually-respectful and welcoming".  ETI inspection report September 2015.

Vision & Values

 

Our vision of Fivemiletown Primary School is one of a school that is a community where children, staff and families feel welcomed and have a sense of belonging and purpose.  We aim to provide a caring and trusting environment in which mutual respect and co-operation will be encouraged, developing self-confidence and promoting a spirit of respect for others.  The ethos of the school is firmly embedded in Christian values.

 

At Fivemiletown Primary School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. We believe that people learn best in different ways and therefore aim to provide a curriculum and pedagogy which embraces and supports the diversity of learning styles and multiple intelligences of children.  We aim to provide a welcoming, attractive and stimulating environment which supports pupils’ learning and which celebrates their academic and non-academic achievements. We aim to provide a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development of the pupils.
