Principal's Welcome

Thank you for showing an interest in Gortin Primary School and I hope this website will give you an insight into the life, ethos and work of our school.  It focuses on what our school is aiming to provide, namely an equal entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum embracing the Northern Ireland curriculum, which will enable each pupil to reach his or her full potential in a supportive and caring environment. Our country school has a strong sense of community (family, friends & neighbours), hardworking effective teachers and small classes where children are challenged and valued.

We consider a close partnership between home and school essential. Through building an open and honest relationship, together we can support and encourage your child/children throughout their primary school years. We believe that the years spent at primary school should be enjoyed and should produce secure children, socially well adjusted, proud of their own achievements and ready to continue with the next stage of formal education.

In conclusion if you need further clarification, or have any questions, do not hesitate to make an appointment. We look forward to meeting with and welcoming you to our school.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Iris Wallace, Principal
