Background: We were successful in securing a Forest School Award in 2017/18 from the Public Health Agency. We used our own grounds which have extensive parklands and woodlands in them. It is an ideal setting for Forest Schools.

Forest School setting: Mercy Primary School strives to place the individual child at the heart of our provision, leading to a school where every child feels valued as part of our school family. We are a warm and caring school with a reputation for high standards and excellence. We have a highly committed and skilled team of teaching and support staff, who will work together for the benefit of all children in our care. We nurture the talents of all our children and endeavour to make each child feel valued, safe and happy. Forest School provides self-confidence, independent thinking skills, greater mental and physical health and much more. It is the perfect programme to compliment our Mission Statement.
