Welcome to Ballycastle Integrated Primary School. Thank you for considering entrusting your child to our care. Your child’s well-being and happiness is paramount to us. Children are at the heart of our school and we believe that everyone should feel valued.
As children learn best when they feel happy, we in Ballycastle Integrated Primary School, believe that developing high self-esteem is essential. Parents, pupils and staff all play an important part in our school.
We have a child centred approach to education – taking account of all our pupils’ needs and abilities, ensuring that they experience success and grow in confidence.
Our school officially became an Integrated School on 1st September 2007. As an integrated school, pupil intake and staff composition reflects the religious make up of the local community. Our current enrolment is 43% Catholic, 42% Protestant & 15% other or no religion. The Board of Governors consists of 14 members and reflects the religious balance within the school.
Our building has been refurbished and our modern Nursery Unit provides 26 full time funded places in a purpose built suite. The establishment onsite of an Autism Support Centre & Learning Support Centre is currently being explored.
By visiting Ballycastle Integrated Primary School you will better appreciate our ethos - evident in the pride our pupils and staff take in our school. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our school family.
- Planning is underway for our new Breakfast Club!!!
- Throughout the summer break Kidzone staff have been busy thinking of some new ideas for Friday Treats. We have some all-time favourites and some brand new fun ideas that we think your children will enjoy. Kidzone is opened Monday to Friday, 2pm to 5pm.
- It's almost time for back to school!
- BIPS gets a brand new 'Buddy Bench'.
- Pupils can wear their own clothes for the remainder of the week - it may be warmer than of late so shorts and T-Shirts or other PRACTICAL clothing can be worn - this is not a dressing up day.
