Parents have always commented on our caring and approachable staff. We communicate effectively with parents and welcome you as part of our team working together in the best interest of your child. Siblings love the fact that they are able to see each other throughout the school day.

Secure A Place At Grammar School

The majority of our Year 7 pupils, who have sat Transfer Test in recent years, have been successful in securing a place at Grammar School. Your child will be challenged and supported through their learning as they progress from Year 1 right up to Year 7 and will receive a high quality learning experience. They will always be encouraged to achieve their full potential academically and holistically.

Parental Concerns

We know how daunting it is when you are sending your child to primary school for the first time. Let us put your mind at ease!

"I have had a negative prior experience of primary school- what if my child does too?"

We see pupils and parents as an integral part of our school family. Our staff is always caring and approachable.

"I feel uneasy about sending my child into an unfamiliar setting". 

We welcome our new pupils (and parents) into school in the summer term so that they can meet the teacher and enjoy joining in play activities with their future classmates.

What if I do not know any staff members or any other parents?

What do I need to do to prepare my child for primary school?

How can I be sure I have chosen a school which will provide the best education for my child?

"I want to know that my child will be safe at school."

Safeguarding is paramount at Culmore Primary School.  We ensure that every measure is put into place to make our school as safe as possible for the pupils here.  All staff are trained in Child Protection and Safeguarding.  All stakeholders are informed of Policies and Procedures.  We promote positive behaviour at Culmore Primary School and do not tolerate bullying of any kind.

"My child is musical – how will they get the same musical opportunities in a small school compared to a larger school?"

We pride ourselves in the variety of musical experiences we offer our pupils at Culmore Primary School – choir, recorder, steel pans, African drumming, keyboards…to name but a few.
Every pupil, regardless of ability, has the opportunity to take part in our musical performances. Parents just love to see their child blossoming in confidence on these occasions – most importantly the pupils love it too!

Your child is valued, listened to and respected
