school tour 
School Entrance 
 
This is the front entrance to our school. Our school is a listed building located in a beautiful rural location in the historic village of Caledon. Our grounds overlook fields and mature trees. Our neighbours include rabbits, a squirrel and lambs in the springtime. We even have our own resident pheasant, Frankie, who likes to visit from time to time! 
The School Grounds and Outdoor Play 
 
We have two hard surface playgrounds with painted playground games and a grass pitch with goalposts. We added a storage shed to store our equipment for positive play. The children in Foundation also make good use of our recently added outdoor covered play area in Play Based Learning. Mrs Cartmill leads our Eco-Schools programme and helps pupils to maintain our Eco garden. The children enjoy planting and harvesting vegetables from the raised beds. 
The Multi-Purpose Hall 
 
Completed in 2005 as part of the extension project carried out by the EA, the multi-purpose hall has proven to be a valuable asset to the school. The spacious hall with its extensive range of gym equipment is used in sports and physical education activities. With stage curtains and separate stores for our school stage the hall allows us to hold our assemblies, host visiting groups and perform fantastic Christmas concerts. The hall also serves as a dining area at lunch time. 
The Primary 1 Classroom 
 
This is where the children in the early Foundation Stage learn and play. The room is bright and attractive with a wealth of resources to develop early knowledge, skills and independence. The room is organised into zones for Activity Based Learning including writing, reading, creative, small world, construction and role play areas. The children love using the Interactive Whiteboard to enhance their learning. A learning board and visual timetable help pupils to take responsibility for their own learning. Mrs Hill teaches this class and Mrs Berry is the classroom assistant. 
The Primary 2 and 3 Classroom 
 
Miss Moffett is the teacher in the P2/3 classroom.  
The Primary 4/5 Classroom 
 
Welcome to Mrs Burton’s mobile classroom. This is where the children in Primary 4 and 5 participate in a range of active and more formal activities to advance their learning. Like all of our classrooms, the children have access to an Interactive Whiteboard. Mrs Burton and her pupils make excellent use of this technology everyday across the curriculum with pupils even using the IWB to self-register each morning. This new mobile was replaced in March 2013 and is bright and well organised including a learning board and ‘traffic light’ displays as part of our Assessment for Learning strategy. Mrs Morrow is the classroom assistant in this classroom. 
The Primary 6/7 Classroom 
 
Welcome to Mrs Cartmill’s room. Here Primary 6 and 7 are well prepared for the next steps in their education. Pupils participate in engaging, challenging learning activities further developing their core knowledge and skills. With Mrs Cartmill’s skills in arts and crafts, this is also a very creative classroom with pupils’ work clearly on display. The room is appropriately organised for more mature pupils moving towards post-primary education. Mrs Black teaches Key stage two on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Mrs Knipe is the classroom assistant for P6,7 in the mornings.
