St. Mary's Primary School, Altinure

Welcome

At St. Mary's P.S. Altinure, we are convinced that we offer the best possible education for all our pupils. Our enthusiastic and highly qualified staff, combined with the close contact with you, the parents, have produced the high standards of excellence we have come to expect of the school.

We provide a stimulating environment which encourages children to reach their full potential. We plan for the progression of each child and monitor and report progress regularly. We aim to develop in children respect for others and through praise and encouragement motivate them to value their achievements and thus build their self esteem.

If you need any further information then please talk to the parents of children already at the school or better still come and talk to the staff or the Principal, Mrs Redmond. We will only be too happy to answer any queries you may have.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website.
