Mission Statement

Holy Family Primary School is committed to serving the Magherafelt community through the provision of a caring and effective Catholic education, which will enable children to fulfil their potential for Christian, academic and personal development.

We value and respect all members of our school community and recognise that each is unique and gifted differently. We encourage everyone to share responsibility within the school and to participate in its life and work, developing and using all their talents.

Family life is important to us and therefore we actively seek the support of our parents, the church and the wider community.

For Holy Family Primary School there is no better way to build family than to live family - working hard together, sharing, caring, loving, forgiving, and always being loyal.

School Aims

As a Catholic school we aim to: -

Promote the Catholic ethos by creating a safe, happy, stimulating environment, which provides for the needs, abilities and backgrounds of all our children.

Promote Pastoral care, incorporating fairness, compassion and tolerance, which will develop self confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline and independence.

Promote effective learning through the provision of a broad and balanced relevant curriculum, which provides children with the opportunity to achieve their potential within a variety of contexts.

Promote strong links with home, parish and the wider community, developing a sense of citizenship and a respect for other cultures, reflecting commitment to a Christian way of life.
