Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to St Oliver Plunkett Primary and Nursery school.

We are a child centred and parent friendly school which endeavours to work in partnership with parents, parish and the wider community for the good of our pupils. Our staff are enthusiastic, dedicated and work hard to support pupils in all aspects of their learning thus creating an atmosphere where pupils are happy, fulfilled, secure and challenged.

Our Catholic ethos permeates all aspects of school life and our pupils are encouraged to develop respect, tolerance and fairness in working and playing with others. We are a multi-cultural school with pupils from Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia currently attending. We welcome all cultures to our school and this adds a rich cultural dimension to the education provided.

We have developed a wide range of extra curricular activities, which we see as important in the development of the whole child. Pupils are given the opportunities to develop new talents, improve on existing skills, raise their expectations, and develop their self-esteem.

Encouragement and praise plays an important part in the day to day workings of our school and we encourage our pupils to always do their best and believe in themselves at all times.

While this website can give you a glimpse of many aspects of our school life if you wish to see around the school, please feel free to call and arrange a suitable time.

We look forward to meeting you and your child.

A warm welcome awaits you in St Oliver Plunkett’s Primary and Nursery School.

Safeguarding Inspection

The school's most recent inspection was a Safeguarding inspection which was held in October 2017. Three members of the Education Training Inspectorate (ETI) visited the school and looked at all the policies and procedures relating to Safeguarding and Child Protection. They spoke with the Principal and Designated Child Protection Teacher and to the Year 6 pupils, as well as with members of our Board of Governors.

Whilst they were unable to see the outworking of these policies within the school (due to industrial action short of strike action), they were able to comment on what they had looked at.

In summary, they found that the school’s paperwork presented was meticulous, and that all relevant policies were up to date. They noted that the school had appropriately identified areas in which it wished to develop further.

ETI felt the pupils were respectful and very happy at school, noting that the pupils spoke very highly of the school and its teachers, and that they knew who to go to if they had a problem.

They felt the representatives of the school’s Board of Governors were highly skilled in their role and in their knowledge of school improvement.

In conclusion, ETI felt our school was a very warm and welcoming place.
