Principal’s Welcome

“As Principal of Castleroe Primary School I am delighted that you are taking the time to browse our website.  I hope you find it a useful and informative starting point to learn a little about life for pupils at Castleroe.

We are very proud of our school environment, our pupils and the outstanding education we provide in Castleroe Primary school.    We have an experienced and dedicated teaching team who have been rated outstanding by ETI.  They are skilled in ensuring that each child in our care reaches their full potential.  Our standards of academic attainment are consistently high, always above the NI average standard.

We pride ourselves on knowing each child personally and tailoring their educational experiences to meet their specific needs and strengths. 

You will find us less than two miles from Coleraine on the Castleroe Road overlooking beautiful countryside.  Our school building opened in 2007 and provides a bright, stimulating and modern learning environment.

I would encourage you to contact us to find out more about our school, the exceptional service we provide and the dynamics of our strong and vibrant community.”

“In the areas inspected, the quality of education provided by this school is outstanding; the quality of pastoral care is also outstanding.”   Castleroe Primary School, Inspection Report October 2010

We are happy to share with you the findings of our latest Inspection Report.  As you may be aware, the four main teaching unions were taking action short of strike.  At Castleroe PS we support the union action while all times ensuring we fulfil the role of our profession in meeting the needs of the pupils you entrust to our care.  As a result, while the inspectors (ETI) did not watch classroom teaching, they spent two days in Castleroe PS, reviewing all our policies and procedures, inspecting our premises, analysing our performance data, interviewing Mrs Williams, the Governors and a meeting with groups of children to ensure the targets on our action plans for teaching and learning were being met.
