Welcome to Dunluce School

 At the heart of the school’s ethos lies the premise that intelligence and ability are not fixed qualities and that pupils’ endeavour, supported by the expertise and high expectations of their teachers, can enable them to     achieve that which they did not think possible.

We believe that each pupil, regardless of ability, is of equal value and deserves equal opportunity.  

We therefore strive to attain excellence in all of our pupils and excellence in all that we do.

I wish to bring to your attention recent educational plans which you may or may not be aware of. On Wednesday 11 April the Education Authority published the Year 2 Action Plan for their Area Planning Process. This is a lengthy document which outlines the need to rationalise provision and sustainability across the province, in the long term, in an environment where the educational budget is far from adequate.

 

Within this report, the Causeway Coast and Glens Council Area has been identified as a specific area of foci. This will involve identifying and planning for a sustained educational provision within the area to meet the needs of future generations. I write to assure you that although Dunluce School has a part to play in this review, there is no talk of closure, merger or amalgamation at this point in time. I believe that Dunluce School has a core role to play in ensuring our voice is brought to the table, in the discussions that need to be undertaken around long term educational provision.

I can assure you that these discussions will see no immediate change in provision within the Causeway Coast and Glens Council Area including Dunluce School and if the Education Authority are to fully explore all suggestions to long term provision then this is not a process that can be undertaken lightly or hurriedly. Irrespective of any adjustment to provision, I can assure you that all stakeholders will be afforded the opportunity to fully voice their views and/or concerns.

In conclusion, provision remains unchanged at Dunluce School and any media coverage of this recently launched Action Plan should be received within the context of this letter. If you have any further questions that you would like to ask, please do not hesitate to contact me.
