P1 Induction

Welcome to Ballylifford Primary School.​

Starting Primary One can be an anxious time for both pupil and parent. We aim to provide a secure, happy and caring environment in which the children in our care develop physically, socially and emotionally.

We are very excited about to getting to know you and your child over the next seven years. 

“Early years are vital years in our children’s lives.  They are unique in terms of children’s intellectual, emotional, physical and social development and the formation of children’s ability to interact successfully with the world around them, both in early childhood and in later life.  They are the springboard for creating confident learners and participative citizens.” ​Early Years' Strategy 

​We are looking forward to your child starting school in September and hope they will have a very enjoyable, happy seven years at Ballylifford Primary School.
