Building/Facilities

 

In 2013 Dromore Road underwent significant building extension works and a fabulous complete refurbishment of the school building was carried out.  Our new school building consists of a fantastic general office, Principal’s office, large staff room and four well equipped classrooms, each with an interactive white board installed.  All the classes are also well resourced with ICT equipment and the pupils have access to laptops, ipads, digital cameras, webcams and a range of recording and programmable devices. 

In the centre of the school is a resource area which is currently being utilised as a library and a multi-purpose room which is used for small group teaching, particularly by the Learning Support teacher and Reading Partners.

In addition the school has a large multi-purpose hall which facilitates PE lessons, after school sports, dinners, assemblies and school productions and events.

Outside there are two tarmac playground areas, one of which is marked out for both netball and cycling proficiency. The children also have access to a wide variety of games and resources to play with during dinnertime and our Playground Friends oversee and manage their use.

In 2017, with the support of an Award For All grant, we developed our outside provision to create an outdoor play area and this area is currently utilised by the Foundation Stage classes and KS1 during structured play.

The school also has an eco-garden which has been targeted in 2020 for further development and our active Eco Warriors in Y6 and 7 are currently seeking community support in its development. The school is involved in the Eco Schools Scheme and was awarded its green flag again in April 2019.
