At The Abercorn, we offer a rich and varied curriculum that provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. We endeavour to help each child reach their full potential and achieve as high a standard as he/she can.
The Northern Ireland Curriculum places considerable emphasis on the development of thinking skills and personal capabilities so our work involves children in managing information, being creative, working with others, problem solving, decision making and active learning skills. Taking into account the various stages of development and differing rates of learning our teaching methods will carefully match the needs of each pupil.
We are also looking at our PDMU programme. The social and emotional wellbeing of our pupils is paramount. We have recently started following the Barnardos PATHS programme in every class. Whitney from Barnardos has provided training to all staff members. Our children love being chosen as Pupil of the Day and receiving their compliments list.
