CrawfordSchools™ philosophy of THINK, UNDERSTAND and APPLY comes through in all that we do. Every child is given the opportunity to develop into the best individual person that he or she can be. We cater for this individuality in every child, in a caring and nurturing environment through our passionate and dedicated staff.
Our school caters for a wide variety of sporting and cultural activities during the normal school day, as well as extra murally. Our academic success is well known and includes a wide variety of subjects. Cutting edge methods of teaching are designed to prepare our pupils for the unknown world, which they will be part of one day. We therefore change our methodology annually to adapt to these changes. New programmes are researched continuously within our group of schools and best practices are shared between us.
This includes the latest technology, with our mobile Apple Laptops, that our pupils use throughout our wireless campus to research relevant topics of discussion. All learning is integrated into our syllabi and Technology is used as a tool for learning. Low muscle tone is addressed in our preventative Neuro Developmental Programme, which all Foundation Phase pupils experience daily. This allows for greater success in learning, whilst eliminating all primitive reflexes, thus preparing children for more formal learning. We follow the THRASS programme for Phonics and Spelling and the PAL Mathematics programme for Mathematics.
With our school located in the Bush Baby centre of Craigavon, we adopted these phenomenal little nocturnal creatures as our own. We have placed nesting logs throughout the campus and viewing evenings take place on the first Friday of every month (organised by Bush Baby SOS).
