EDENDORKPS

Together as governors, staff, parents, the local Church and community: “Inspired by our faith in Christ, as a Catholic school, we will provide a happy, secure, caring, well resourced and stimulating learning environment. We will support and enable our children to realise and achieve their potential. We will empower them to be caring, responsible individuals, contributors to their community, capable of independent thought and well equipped to meet the opportunities/challenges of education, work and life.” We believe the school is a vital part of our community. We want our school to be a secure and caring environment where each child will be encouraged to fulfil his/her intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, aesthetic and emotional potential. We believe example of positive behaviour sets standards and expectations. We believe the self discipline and behaviour of all school staff, together with the co-operation of parents are the two most important ingredients in promoting positive behaviour in our school. Good discipline is the responsibility of all school staff. It is important rules promoting positive behaviour are created and clearly understood by pupils, parents and staff. The importance of applying these consistently throughout the school is vital. Teachers must have parental support in this, as in all other areas of work carried out in Edendork P.S, since ultimately it is the children who will benefit from the quality of education delivered. We are firmly committed to: • the aims of Catholic Education. • providing effective education for all our children including individuals with special needs. • developing positive pastoral care systems in our school. • promoting close links with the home, school, the parish and the wider community. Edendork Primary School seeks to provide an educational experience, centred on Christ, his values and his gospel messages so that each child grows and learns in a strong Christian faith. We promote a positive behaviour policy where good behaviour is recognised and awarded, the pupils self confidence and self esteem are promoted, individuals are encouraged to value one another and there is a sense of belonging to the school as a community. “In Edendork Primary School we are all friends who play, work and learn together so that Edendork Primary School will be a memorable stepping stone through life’s journey.”

The following statements of principle, policy and procedure aim to set the conceptual framework that underpins the practices within Edendork PS Dungannon. Our ethos is reflected in all actions and decisions taken by staff as they follow the detailed guidance set out in the SELB Child Protection Procedures, DENI Circular 199/10 and 2003/13. Children (NI) Order 1995 Guidance and the Area Child Protection Committee Procedures. A hard copy of this policy is also available from the school office.

Edendork, pastoral care permeates all aspects of school life. It reflects the values, attitudes, beliefs and practices of our Catholic faith. We see the school as a community in which pupils, staff, parents, governors and all those connected to Edendork P.S. take great pride in all that we do. We feel that everyone has an important role to play in contributing to the success of the school
