Extra Information

Cranmore IPS is a grant-maintained integrated primary school located on Finaghy Road North. The school draws pupils from a wide catchment area across south Belfast, west Belfast and beyond. As an integrated all-ability primary school we aim to provide a happy, secure environment in which children can learn effectively to realise their full potential as unique individuals. This aim permeates the ethos of the school, the teaching styles and approaches, the pastoral care arrangements and the discipline policy of Cranmore. As children have different abilities, aptitudes and needs, their performances will vary from their peers but every opportunity will be given for children to experience success. Positive encouragement and praise for all pupils regardless of gender, colour or creed will enable them to develop intellectually, socially, morally and spiritually and become full contributing members of the school community. As this is a priority area for our School Development Plan we would like the student tutor to liaise with a classroom assistant who will continue to support the small groups on the days of the week when the tutor is back at the university Further information about the school can be found at
