 (JEP)  JEP is a 10 week entrepreneurial education programme for primary school pupils.  The programme is embedded in the principles of the Primary School Curriculum and utilises an integrated teaching and project-based approach to teach many strands of the curriculum.

The programme helped the pupils  to develop a number of skills including literacy, writing, presentation, drawing, technology, research skills, numeracy, financial, consumer awareness, storytelling, listening skills, creative thinking, problem solving, team building and collaboration skills.  The programme has a significant personal development impact on participating pupils, building confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, and an appreciation of individual skills and talents.

We have really enjoyed having some local business people in farming/agri-food, manufacturing and I.T. come to the school to share their knowledge and expertise with the children.

The 6th class teacher has undertaken work on this project on a number of occasions with his classes.
