It is a pleasure to present to you the school website for Ballyhenry Primary School. Our school is characterised by equality, tolerance, respect for others and a high standard of teaching and learning. Everyone is welcome!

Children are at the heart of our school. Our committed team of staff work hard to create a friendly environment in which our children are able to grow in confidence, to learn and develop their talents and abilities in preparation for tomorrow's world and their future in it.  We instill in our pupils these three key ideas because it is important to be Safe, Ready and Respectable.

Parents have a key role to play in their children’s education. We encourage a positive partnership and open communication between home and school. We work as a team to help each of our pupils reach their full potential.

Ballyhenry is at the heart of the community.  We are working hard to offer more to our families like our “Ballyhenry Tots”, regular coffee mornings and so much more!

Ballyhenry is a growing school and there is a real buzz around the place!  Why not drop in for a visit and see what we have to offer!
