St Mary's Primary School Fivemiletown County Tyrone


As a Catholic school, St. Mary’s Primary School aims to provide all its pupils with the best education possible in a happy and caring environment, where every child can feel secure, valued and respected as an individual. We welcome all children into our community; to partake fully in school life, make friends and settle in. We aim to do this in a way which reflects and celebrates the talents, gifts and dignity of everyone in the school community.

Our school will be an attractive, welcoming and clean school. Children will be actively involved in maintaining and improving our school, developing a respect for their own and others’ property. Children are encouraged to form their own opinions, make decisions, get involved and understand the impact their own and others’ actions have on the environment.

We seek high standards of educational achievement from our children and high standards of professionalism from our staff. The children should be interested in their activities and be well motivated, due to effective teacher planning and delivery. We aim to promote positive behaviour which enables children to have respect for themselves and others and to act responsibly with an awareness of boundaries.

We will try to promote a strong community spirit, with parents recognising their vital role in their child’s education. They should feel supported in their concerns and recognise the school as a place which is open and receptive of their needs.

We aim for effective communication between children, staff, parents and governors and this will provide a sound basis for working and learning together.


This primary school opened in January 1969 and has been providing the children of Fivemiletown since. It is a small school with a big heart and provides a broad and balanced curriculum for the children. The school boasts the latest in technology, with interactive boards, iPads, cameras and voice recorders used on a daily basis. The needs of all children are met through small group teaching and the provision of learning support enables all chidlren to fulfil their potential. The vast grounds provide opportunities for play and sports and the school hall is used for a range of events including school productions, discos and special events.
