Welcome

Welcome to Knockavoe School & Resource Centre website! Hopefully the content will give you information about the aims, values and ethos of our school. Our mission statement, “Reaching for a brighter future” illustrates our belief that all pupils’ welfare, well-being, health, happiness and educational attainment is at the heart of all we do within our school community on a daily basis.

Here at Knockavoe we welcome children/young people, parents/guardians and their extended families into a friendly, supportive, challenging, happy and caring environment. The main strength of our school is the hardworking, highly skilled, knowledgeable staff who are committed to enabling every child/young adult to achieve his/her full potential. We hold a Silver Investors in People Award (IIP)and are a Level 2 Rights Respecting school.

We welcome pupils from all faiths or none and from all backgrounds. School ethos places emphasis on providing a caring nurturing education for all, developing pupil self-worth and building self-esteem through the development of secure relationships within highly structured and stimulating classroom environments.

Governors and the school leadership team place great emphasis on ensuring that our school is resourced in a manner which will assist in equipping our children & young adults for life and learning in the twenty-first century-pupils come 1st in everything we do and plan for.

I hope that you enjoy visiting our website, that the information is beneficial, informative and useful and you leave knowing more about our school community!
