About Our School 

Statement of Ethos 
 
We in Carntall Primary, aim to make learning fun, purposeful and challenging. We value and acknowledge each one of our pupils as individuals. Within a happy, caring and safe environment, we seek to address individual needs and enable all our pupils to celebrate success.

Guided by Christian principles, we encourage our pupils to develop self-control, respect for others and an acceptable set of moral values. We build their confidence, independence and self-esteem. We seek to empower them to make responsible decisions and become responsible citizens of the future. 
 
We believe in the importance of teamwork and positive partnerships between pupils, parents, teachers, classroom assistants, governors and the wider community. Each makes an individual and unique contribution to the educational process here in Carntall Primary School. 
 
We are committed to the provision of high standards of education and to the continuum of improvement. Through a process of self-evaluation, we will ensure that the quality of education provided continues to be appropriate and reflects the desire to raise our pupils’ standards of achievement. 
 
THE SCHOOL 
 
Carntall is a controlled, co-educational primary school. It is situated in an attractive rural setting, approximately two miles from the village of Clogher, just off the Fintona Road. 
 
Carntall Primary School moved to the present site in 1961. Two new classrooms were added in 1984 followed by a further extension in 2004. The building now comprises three permanent classrooms, one mobile classroom, two resource areas, an office, a staff room, a Principal’s office, a multi-purpose hall and a kitchen. 
 
The extensive grounds include a tarmac play area with playground markings, a grassed football pitch with goalposts, a landscaped water feature area and other spacious grassed play areas. The grounds are further enhanced by a variety of trees and shrubs as well as a delightful display of daffodils each spring. The rich natural environment at Carntall Primary provides pleasant and stimulating surroundings for its pupils.
