Dear Parent(s) Thank you for considering Millisle Primary School and/or our Nursery Unit as the right school for your child. This prospectus is intended to help you know more about the life and work of our wonderful School and our Nursery Unit. Learning begins in the home and throughout a child’s schooling the environment of the home continues to influence his/her educational development profoundly. In school we are dedicated to encouraging your child’s learning by offering a stimulating and varied curriculum, a secure environment where he/she will be encouraged to fulfil his/her academic potential, respect other children, co-operate with other boys and girls and communicate openly with his/her peers and the teacher. Our goal is to promote enjoyment in education. We believe that parents should feel welcome in our school and take a positive interest in their child’s education. Teachers are linked to parents by the children for whom they are responsible. Let us therefore work as a team to make your child’s school days as pleasant and enriching as possible.Your child’s teacher, the Head of Key Stage or I will be only too pleased to discuss any matter pertaining to your child’s well being at the school and look forward to your fullest support. However, no prospectus can convey the real atmosphere of the school, so we would like to invite you to pay us a visit and see for yourself. We hope that your son or daughter will have a happy and successful school life at Millisle Primary School. Yours sincerely, I. McManus Principal
