Action Cancer Big Bus

Adults at Kilmaine have had a busy few days visiting the Action Cancer Bus in October. 48 breast screening appointments and 26 health checks were taken, all in a bid to promote the importance of taking the time to look after ourselves and promote well- being initiatives. A big thank you to Kilmaine staff who contributed to the fundraising breakfast and the anonymous donator ( you know who you are)!


Everyone Counts!



Welcome to the thriving school community of Kilmaine. Here we endeavour to establish a supportive relationship between home and school; a relationship which ensures a consistent and secure journey through primary school life. We acknowledge that parents, as a child’s first educators, are keen for their children to do well. With this in mind, we make it our business to actively work with our parents so that each child is empowered to achieve to the very best of their ability. Our ‘open door’ policy means that key members of staff will be available to talk to parents at any time.

The school’s ethos reflects the quality of relationships within the school community. Kilmaine is a happy, caring school where hard work and good behaviour are an expectation of all. We actively celebrate the diversity of the wider community and are committed to the principles of inclusion and equality of opportunity.

We encourage our children to develop their talents and seek excellence in all of their endeavours. A varied programme of extra-curricular activities is offered and it is indicative of our pupils’ commitment and enthusiasm that the school can boast of many successes at both local and national level in the areas of sport and the performing arts. Our children are supportive of each other and are given many opportunities to celebrate each others' achievements.

We make it our business not to ‘stand still’ but to continue to develop further exciting opportunities to enrich the learning experiences of our pupils year on year.

Our purpose built Nursery and Foundation Stage facilities have the advantage of secure areas which promote learning in the outdoor environment. The school buildings are modern and spacious allowing excellent access for all needs. The school building is surrounded by extensive grounds incorporating hard surfaced areas, playing field and outdoor classrooms for Key Stage 1 and 2.

I hope that I have given you a flavour of what our school is about and the pride we take in it.

Yours sincerely

R. Sinnamon                                                    

Acting Principal
