Killavullen NS
Educating in a joyful, positive and secure setting

Hello and a very warm welcome to the Killavullen NS website!

Our website aims to give you an insight into life in our school, where we strive to provide interesting and exciting ways for our pupils to engage in the curriculum. This is facilitated through the active creation of a positive, inclusive, child-centred, learning environment, where all children are encouraged to seize the many opportunities presented to them.

The ‘School Life’ menu tab paints a general picture of what our pupils engage in over the course of an academic year. ‘Teaching’ tab shows the innovative ways we engage the children in the curriculum and the ‘Parents’ tab provides up-to-date information on policies and practices. We wish to give you a window into school-life and a practical guide to the spirit and learning culture of our school, while also providing existing and prospective parents with access to school policies and information.

Our primary aim in Killavullen NS is to meet the needs of every child entrusted to our care. We seek to support each child’s individuality and develop everyone’s talents. At KNS, we work together to provide a challenging, engaging, supportive and caring environment for the whole school community. We continually strive to enhance this positive climate for learning which defines the culture of our school. Fundamentally, the school seeks to complement the home in promoting all aspects of learning and development.

At Killavullen NS we have high expectations of our pupils and staff and we know them well. We celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children welcome challenges and are not frightened of making mistakes. We have strong links with our parents and the local community. We firmly believe that confidence in school comes from knowing and understanding what’s happening within it. We appreciate the support we have always received in the past and we look forward to your continued support in the future.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website and don’t hesitate to contact us should you need more information!
