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.
- As an Eco School, we want to reduce the number of single use plastics that we use.
- Well done to all our boys and girls who look so smart in our school uniform!
- We asked the children what they'd like -they all love a sticky, sweet treat, so it had to be S'mores once more!
- This week it is 'HOUSES WEEK' in school with the children belonging to one of our 4 Houses. Each House has an associated colour: Fairhead (yellow), Glenshesk (green), Rathlin (blue), Knocklayde (red).
