Thank you for your interest in our school and for visiting our school website.
Holy Family Primary School aims to provide a Catholic education, which seeks to foster the growth of the whole child and to help them realise their unique God-given potential. Holy Family is a wholly child centred school and community of good practice, where our excellent staff collaborate to meet the aspirations and needs of our pupils through high quality learning and teaching, where all children are encouraged to achieve high standards. Although we are a Catholic school we warmly welcome pupils of all nationalities and religious denominations and value and respect the rich cultural diversity they bring to our school.
Holy Family operates as a split site school, the two buildings being only a short walk apart. The junior is located on Brook Street and the senior site is located on Brookmount Road.
Our junior site is home to the younger foundation/KS1 pupils i.e. Reception to Yr.4 while our older pupils in Yrs. 5 – 7 will occupy the senior site. Both sites have been newly refurbished with bright new classrooms and playgrounds making full and best use of the additional space, resources and play areas.
We are delighted to inform parents that we also offer a full after school programme of music, sports and the Arts and also a wrap-around care facility through Cornabracken at Holy Family, which is based on the senior site. This day care facility offers pre and after school care, a playgroup session and full summer scheme and will take full responsibility for the transfer of your child between sites.
Our caring staff is dedicated to providing a safe, happy stimulating learning environment for our pupils, in an atmosphere where Christian values of inclusion and respect are clearly lived and where the growth of the whole child is fostered. Central to our provision is the value placed in working in partnership with our parents, parish and community in order to meet the holistic needs of our pupils in this rapidly changing society.
Our Catholic ethos, pastoral care and family atmosphere will permeate every aspect of school life to ensure the well-being, health and safety of your child. We hope you and your child will have a long and happy association with Holy Family and find our school website useful and informative.
