Killavullen NS
Educating in a joyful, positive and secure setting

Our warm, enthusiastic staff comprises of five Class Teachers, two Special Education Teachers and an extra SET part-time on Fridays, four SNAs, a full-time Secretary, Caretaker and Cleaner. We also work in partnership with external teachers and coaches to bring further opportunities to our pupils. Our staff possess a wide variety of talents and skills from which the children benefit hugely.

Teachers are trained in programmes such as: Accelerated Reader, a programme that gives pupils a significantly greater choice of levelled books and quizzes than any other programme; Friends for Life and Zippy’s Friends, programmes promoting resilience and social inclusion; Mata sa Rang, a programme that develops number knowledge at the cutting edge of each child’s ability in number (number skills are required for nearly all strands of the Maths curriculum) and many more.

Children engage in many various projects and initiatives in areas of STEM, Music and Sport working collaboratively with their peers and bringing their learning to life. We encourage participation in the wide range of extra-curricular after school activities on offer such as, Hurling & Football training, Music lessons with instruments for rent, Chess Club, Basketball training and often after school work required for the projects and initiatives mentioned above.

All of these are facilitated by our talented staff, opening doors to opportunities and a ‘give-it-a-go’ attitude to life, something that is central to our ethos in Killavullen School.
