OUR ETHOS

Enjoying Learning Together... Respecting Each Other

Integrated education can best be described as the bringing together in one school of pupils, staff and governors, in roughly equal numbers, from Protestant, Catholic, other faiths and none. It is about cultivating the individual's self-respect and therefore respect for other people and other cultures. Integrated Education means bringing children up to live as adults in a pluralist society, recognising what they hold in common as well as what separates them, and accepting both.

Roe Valley Integrated Primary School understands that every child has a unique set of qualities and talents. A child-centred approach gives equal value to all children and takes into consideration their needs and abilities when organising the curriculum and determining teaching strategies. Children will be encouraged to value and respect each other's traditions and beliefs.
