IN October Omagh County Primary School and Nursery Unit celebrated 60 years as lead educators in the field of primary and pre-school education within the local area. Today this well-established school is thriving with over 350 pupils in the school family. Widely recognised for always serving the community well, Omagh County boasts excellent standards of teaching and learning for all children along with the convenience of wrap around care provision through their breakfast club (8am) and after schools provision (2-5.30pm).    As a school which cares deeply for its children, the school invested in PATHS to empower all children to develop the fundamental social and emotional learning skills which enable them to make positive choices throughout life and develop resilience.  Specific thematic teaching and learning helps to promote positive mental health, self-esteem and ultimately enhances academic outcomes.  Having achieved the prestigious PATHS Model School status, Omagh County PS have been showcasing their work to primary school leaders from across the Education Authority’s Western Region. In enabling all children to be effective learners Omagh County has also been awarded the British Dyslexia Association Kitemark, which is awarded to schools whose philosophy embodies high-quality education and practice for all children.

Omagh County is one of only five primary schools within Northern Ireland to have achieved this accolade.  Omagh County also has a thriving Nursery Unit for children aged two to four, co-ordinated by a specialist early year’s teacher. Here the children learn through exciting and stimulating play opportunities such as; Getting Ready to Learn, Big Bedtime Read, Ages and Stages and also Healthy Happy Kids. The children also become familiar with the school setting and ensures a smooth transition into Year 1 and beyond.  The school have pioneered a 0-4 programme, recognising education begins long before children enrol in Year 1. This began with Rhyme Time and Be Fit for Fun three years ago and now includes the hosting of other programmes including Baby Sensory, Toddle Sense, Buggy Fit and Baby Yoga classes.

We would like to invite you to our open evening on Thursday, December 5 between 4.30-6.30pm and show you what Omagh County PS and Nursery can offer your family. If you are unable to attend our open evening, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment with the school principal. As we celebrate our past why not become part of our future!
