Taking Boys Seriously

“This important conference today highlights the role that CCMS continues to play in supporting and challenging school leaders and Governors to ensure that a range of strategies are in place to address the barriers to learning and underachievement of all pupils, particularly boys and pupils facing social deprivation.

“The performance of pupils in our maintained post-primary schools (non-selective) in 2017/18 was more than 5% above the Northern Ireland average for all non-selective schools.

“However, there still remains a significant gender gap between the attainment of boys and girls and CCMS remains committed to supporting our schools in raising standards for all pupils, in particular boys and those pupils entitled to Free School Meals.

“Today we are particularly delighted to be able to showcase the proactive and imaginative approaches being developed in St Joseph’s Boys School towards raising the aspirations and achievements of boys in Derry City”.
