Welcome to our School

Welcome to Edmund Rice Primary School.  Our school has a long tradition in boys’ education and has served the community since 1967.  This is our School Prospectus in which you can learn a little about our school community. 

In February 2011 we were the subject of a focused inspection carried out by the Education and Training Inspectorate for Northern Ireland and received an excellent report.


John Devine, Principal

The inspectors concluded that the strengths of the school include:

  • The ethos of the school which promotes the children’s learning behaviour
  • The quality of teaching observed during the inspection with over half the lessons being very good or outstanding
  • The good standards achieved by the children in literacy and Numeracy which have improved steadily over the past four year period
  • The outstanding links made with the parents and the community which are having a beneficial impact on the children’s achievements.
  • The very effective transition arrangements which are designed to ensure progression in learning at the transition stages
  • Outstanding leadership of the Principal

We have an experienced and well-qualified staff of 15 teachers (9 female and 6 male) dedicated to the all round development of our pupils.  Our teaching staff is ably backed by committed and well qualified classroom assistants who are an integral part of our school community. ICT is essential in today’s world and with Interactive Whiteboards in each classroom we are at the very forefront of technology.  Links with our sister school, Star of the Sea and the local nursery schools are strong and ever growing.  We are actively involved with the community and all the local post primary schools. 

Our strongest links are with our parents as education for the pupils is a partnership and we pride ourselves on the often commented upon warm, welcoming and industrious atmosphere of our school.  Our aims and tradition encompassed in the vision of Blessed Edmund Rice is to provide for the harmonious growth of the whole person in a secure and caring environment.

Inspired by the vision of Edmund Rice the school:

  • gives priority to education in a living faith whereby pupils grow to appreciate the life and mission of Jesus Christ with a view to being committed to the world as he was;

  • has a special concern for the poor and under-privileged;

  • is challenged to develop a curriculum which promotes the harmonious growth of the whole person.


The central purpose of the school community is to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development of pupils at the school and thereby of society; and to prepare these pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
