What We Teach

We deliver a full range of subjects within the Northern Ireland Curriculum to ensure a broad and balanced education.

The areas of study are:

Language and Literacy

Mathematics and Numeracy

The World Around Us

The Arts

Personal Development and Mutual Understanding


Physical Education




Further, we endeavour to make school an exciting experience by enhancing learning through a variety of themes and activities.

‘Interactive Hour’ allows a child the opportunity to learn through engaging in curriculum-based games, resolving problem-solving activities or accessing the wealth of learning experiences, which our new ICT room can provide.


‘Circle Time’ helps children develop respect for themselves and others through discussing problems and looking at ways of improving working together.


This is extended through the educational theme of PDMU (Personal Development and Mutual Understanding), which gives pupils opportunities to develop life skills such as conflict resolution, citizenship and learning to respect themselves and each other.


Key Stage 2 pupils carry out much of their work through workshops, museum visits and residential trips (based around environmental themes and outdoor pursuits) and through working with children from another local Primary School.

Recently the school has been involved with an exciting new project to help develop ‘thinking skills’. This work helps children think more carefully when making decisions or understanding other peoples’ views.


Another important aspect of our school is celebrating diversity which takes the form of working with local authors, artists and musicians and most importantly those traditions and cultures, which make our school a multi-cultural centre. We help children celebrate Chinese New Year, Diwali and Ramadan each year through stories, music and artwork.

We also offer French in Primary 3, 4 and 5 and Spanish in Primary 6 and 7, which is proving to be a very popular addition to the children’s learning and enriching many of their summer holidays!

"It's fun and sometimes noisy and hard work."


Eco Schools

At Cranmore we work hard to instill in our children a sense of pride in their environment both locally and globally. We have an active and extremely busy Eco Council and an after schools Eco Club who work year round to ensure that our school grounds always look their best. We have an annual Environment Week to raise awareness of environmental issues and in the 2011/2012 school year we were awarded our first Eco Schools Green Flag Award. In 2013/14 we were awarded our second Green Flag. We are currently working towards achieving our third award. 

Rights Respecting Schools

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Respecting the rights of the child is at the heart of the Cranmore ethos and permeates all aspects of school life. As a result of this we have recently been awarded the Recognition of Commitment.
