NI Curriculum


In Whiteabbey Primary School we follow the Northern Ireland Curriculum.  The Northern Ireland Curriculum sets out the minimum requirement that should be taught at each key stage throughout the child's time in Primary School. Within these requirements, we in Whiteabbey Primary School have a responsibility to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all children and we aim to give every child the opportunity to experience success in learning and to achieve as high a standard as possible. Our school management and teachers, however, have considerable flexibility to make decisions about how best to interpret and combine the requirements so as to best prepare our young people for a rapidly changing world.
