Comments from Parents

"Carniny Primary School has well exceeded my expectations. The caring attitude is evident in all staff members and is mirrored in the pupil’s attitudes. Children are actively encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life and are openly rewarded and praised for exemplary behaviour. Teachers openly interact with parents making the school environment more inviting. Parentmail and +Pay have been fantastic additions to ease communication between school and parents. Brilliant school".

Education Training Inspectorate (October 2011)

"In the areas inspected, the quality of education provided by this school is very good. The school is meeting very effectively the educational and pastoral needs of the children and has demonstrated its capacity for sustained self-improvement".

"The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is outstanding. This is evident through: the caring and friendly ethos within the school; the excellent behaviour of the children; the regular celebration of the children’s successes which builds their self-esteem; and the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities which enhance the children’s learning and social development".
