We are delighted that the Department of Education’s Shared Education Project Management Board has approved the school’s application for funding. The application was made in partnership with McClintock PS and Roscavey PS provides £40,000 to each of the schools to be used over the three year project. It enables children from the three schools to engage in shared educational activities. Already a number of very successful activities have taken place:
Children and staff completed questionnaires which explored their views on sharing with schools from different sectors.
Children in different classes have attended shared activities in An Creagan, STEM Centre, Dungannon; Ulster American Folk Park, Speedwell's Project in Parkanaur, Todd's Leap, GAA Centre, and Kelly's Inn in Garvaghey and in each of the three schools.
Teaching and support staff participate in at least three Staff Development training days each year.
Curriculum coordinators for Literacy, Numeracy, UICT, world Around Us and the foundation Stage from the schools meet each term to discuss provision for the children.
