The EA recognises the need to provide Assisted Digital Support for some parents/guardians who want to apply online for a pre-school or primary place. 
Some Parents/guardians may need assisted digital support, if they lack: 
 
* trust in the service or the internet 
* confidence to use an online service themselves 
* access to the internet 
* digital skills 
* motivation to overcome these barriers on their own 
 
To help parents/guardians overcome these barriers the EA is hosting a number of Digital Admission Clinics. These clinics are being targeted at areas where there is a high number of newcomer families, high levels of social disadvantage and localities with poor access to broadband. 
The clinics will operate on a drop in basis and will parents will be assisted in making their online application for a pre-school or primary place. Depending on their wishes/skills this could range from creation of an email address to submission of an application. In addition varying levels of translation services can be accessed at the clinics. 
 
Details of clinics will be available on the EA website and the schedule will be updated regularly at www.eani.org.uk/clinicsforparents as further clinics are arranged. 
 
The following session has been arranged for Portadown, on Thursday, 17 January, please feel free to share on your Facebook page or website and also to inform any prospective applicants that you may be aware of.

Welcome to Richmount Primary School’s website. 
 
This website has been designed to provide you with useful information and give you some insight into the educational opportunities available in this school 
 
I hope the information will be of benefit and interest. We believe that our pupils are our greatest assets and together form our most convincing advertisement. 
 
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with due emphasis given to academic achievement, basic skills, the opportunity for physical development and a social and moral environment which encourages the principles of honesty and integrity, self confidence and a consideration of others. 
 
A close partnership between home and school is highly valued and is fostered in numerous ways throughout the school year. 
 
Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have. 
 
Yours sincerely 
Mr. M. Hall

The school choir at the palace building in Armagh singing as guests of the Lord Mayor Councilor Julie Flaherty (a former pupil of Richmount). The Lord Mayor had organized the reception to honour the hard work carried out by rural community groups in the council area. The choir entertained those present with an array of carols and were joined in their efforts by the Lord Mayor. 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 
November 2018 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home.  
P1 Can Ahmedova – making really pleasing progress in all areas of his classwork. 
 
 
P5 (Mr. Clyde/Mrs. Kimber) Abigail Barr – a great weather diary during independent writing. 
P2 Ada Fikrit – always trying her best in all class activities. 
 
 
 
P6/7 Ben Smyth – good progress with his daily mental maths work. 
P3 Noah Cardwell – working really hard in class and always doing his best. 
 
 
 
P7 Summer Mulligan – reading so brilliantly at the switching on of the Christmas tree lights. 
P4 (Miss Haslam) –Molly McClean – working really hard in class and completing work much more consistently. 
 
.After school club Isabella Robinson – being a very enthusiastic helper. 
P4 (Mr. Clyde/Mr. Caddell) Joseph Woods – a good start to 2D shape.
