Mission Statement

We believe that Northview Primary School owes its existence to the learners in it.  We are here to help all our learners to achieve their fullest possible potential for their self-development.

Every attempt is made to base our practices and procedures on the fundamental belief that all learners have the same rights irrespective of their current education attainment, racial origin, creed, gender, physical ability or cultural background.

The school aims to develop and implement educational practices, which regard learners as active participants and not as passive recipients.  We also regard the active learning and teaching approaches as an important means of producing critically thinking, self-respecting, self-disciplined, literate, numerate and well-balanced young people who will be able to have access to a range of opportunities in the years to follow.

We aim to continually seek ways and means of developing close and positive working relationships with parents and the communities around us.

We aim to ensure that we communicate effectively to all our learners that we value them.  We believe that only by doing so, will our learners become adults who respect and value other human beings around them.

We aim to promote a learning environment in which learners are motivated and have the self-confidence to raise questions and evaluate their own work and attainments.  This atmosphere will ensure that the learners show their highest levels of achievement through a positive response to the tasks set.

We aim to ensure that every learner leaving our school is confident, happy and healthy and able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered to them.
