Welcome to Goonhavern Primary School. I am very proud to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school. We strive to be “outstanding” in all respects and I would like to thank you for your interest in our school.
Goonhavern Primary School is recognised as being an excellent school with a caring family ethos. Our staff set high standards and aim to ensure that all our young people achieve their best, realise their full potential and participate fully in the life of their school.
Our goal is to achieve a happy, caring and close working environment with our families. We strive to achieve the very best so that your child has the skills and inspiration to be confident and believe in themselves.
Education is a partnership between home and school and we put a great emphasis on our relationship with parents. Our belief is that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. Our dynamic and exciting curriculum offers an enjoyment of education and learning. It provides opportunities to solve problems and process information. We believe and encourage children to take responsibility for their learning and be able to make decisions.
Goonhavern Primary School are a committed and enthusiastic staff team who want the best for our children by providing an innovative, high quality teaching which inspires a lifelong love of learning. We are excellent role models and enable children to feel that they can achieve and feel positively about themselves. We believe our children can achieve anything and treat all of them equally.
At Goonhavern Primary School we are proud of our achievements and recognise the significance of celebrating everyone’s successes in many ways.
We are always trying to improve our standards. Our staff have established very effective means of ensuring that every child is given the opportunities to thrive. Our aim is to help each and every pupil reach their full potential.
Children’s well-being is of great importance to us. Whatever children learn now will last a lifetime; the experiences will keep coming back throughout life. One of the most important aspects of education is the development of a philosophy of life. All of us must continually remind each other that we have social responsibilities; we need to care for others and feel we belong.
You are most welcome into our school environment, where, with a spirit of friendship and cooperation we can work together to help your child experience a happy, contented and successful time with us.
We look forward to welcoming your child to Goonhavern Primary School. If you ever have any questions you would like answered please do not hesitate to contact me at school.
