Welcome to St. Malachy's P.S.

“Strive, Serve and Smile.”

We strive to fulfil our potential in all aspects of our lives.

We serve all to the best of our abilities.

We smile as we endeavour to develop resilience in the face of life’s challenges and learn to appreciate the times when life demonstrates its wonder and beauty.

St. Malachy's Primary School is a Nurturing School and has achieved the Marjorie Boxhall Quality Mark Award and School of Sanctuary status. We are committed to implementing the six principles of a nurturing school.

We are Seesaw ambassadors and attempt to link parents to the work children do at school.

We appreciate the wonder of other cultures and religions with whom we share the world and our school. Together we demonstrate that the world and our little school is a place where we laugh, cry, learn to work hard, help each other and prepare for the great gifts and challenges that our world has to offer us.

School  Ethos

It is our aim to provide a safe and caring environment in which we all can recognise our own self-worth and achieve our full potential. It is our intention to foster our spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, physical, social and cultural development.  We endeavour to encourage Christian and non-Christian life and academic development and prepare for the opportunities, responsibilities and challenges of life.  We encourage children to work and play in a spirit of cooperation and fairness, showing tolerance of, and respect for, the needs of others, and for cultures and religions which are different to their own.  We aim to provide a broad curriculum, which is child-centred and recognises the needs of individual children. We have high expectations of our children.  We are a Catholic school with a strong emphasis on Christ’s teachings but we have a deserved reputation for our pursuit of inclusion and our welcome of all faiths (and none), whose views and beliefs are fully respected. We believe that a strong partnership between home, school and community is essential to promote the well-being of all in our school and in the wider community.

St. Malachy's awarded 'School of Sanctuary' status.

Congratulations to everyone on this great achievement.
