A Call for Change is a CCMS report on provision for special educational needs (SEN), written following extensive engagement between CCMS and school leaders. The leaders highlighted many issues but the three areas of greatest concern were SEN provision, Early Years Provision and the ongoing development of a shared vision for their Catholic Ethos. CCMS set up working groups to further explore these issues and to report on their findings.CallForChange

The Nursery and Catholic Ethos reports will be launched in early 2021… this space!A Call for Change is the first of these reports and outlines in great detail the findings of the working group and the views of the wider Catholic maintained sector on the improvements required in SEN provision. CCMS is grateful to all who took part in the working group and fully endorses the recommendations contained within the report.

Holy Evangelists PS, Twinbrook - News and Challenges

Holy Evangelists PS Crest

 Holy Evangelists Primary School has been notified that they are only the second school in Northern Ireland to be awarded the Diversity Charter Mark - many congratulations!

Due to the lockdown situation the new build project has been delayed but everyone is hoping that they can decant into the new school in January.

The school has been busy setting, uploading and undertaking online challenges - the one below is an interesting one at this moment in time.

As the children were unable to make their first communion the school challenged them with a game of Guess Who i.e. identify the staff members from their communion photographs. This has proved very popular and the rogues gallery is produced below
