Vision and Values
“Preparing Pupils for a Changing World”
As a Rights Respecting School the UNCRC is at the heart of the school culture and ethos where we strive to improve well being and develop every child's talents and abilities to their fullest potential.
At The High School Ballynahinch teaching staff work under the GTCNI Core Values but all members of the school community agree to underpin all aspects of school life with the following values:
At The High School Ballynahinch we believe that every school member is a valued individual with a range of abilities and talents which are recognised, respected and developed in order to maximise their potential.
The aims of the school are as follows:
- Through quality teaching and learning provide a broad and balanced curriculum with a range of experiences which will prepare pupils for a changing world and to provide opportunity for pupils to develop and encourage progression in the areas of Literacy, Numeracy and ICT;
- To promote learning through quality teaching in a caring, disciplined school environment within the local community and further afield and to meet the needs of all pupils and staff by securing strong partnerships with parents and the wider community;
- To provide opportunities to challenge each pupil to meet their full potential, academically, physically, spiritually and emotionally and to promote a sense of self esteem and respect for others in a safe, comfortable, caring environment.
