Within a Christian, caring environment, the school aims:
To provide a welcoming atmosphere where pupils are prepared to become mature, responsible, self-sufficient adults and contributors to society.
To broaden horizons through a variety of experiences within the school and further afield in order to foster and encourage an appreciation of the benefits, challenges and difficulties of living in this isolated area that is part of the Newry & Mourne Area Learning Community.
To provide a curriculum suited to the intellectual, aesthetic, spiritual, practical and physical needs of each individual child - a curriculum designed to allow each child to fulfil his/her maximum academic potential. This will include the use of ICT, where appropriate and may include provision of courses outside the confines of the school in collaboration with other educational providers in Newry & Mourne ALC.
To provide a caring environment which promotes confidence and self-esteem and therefore a heightened awareness of the needs of tolerance and sensitivity towards others.
To develop good relationships and closer links between school and home, community and the outside world.
