In selecting children for admission to the Nursery Unit and Primary 1, the Board of Governors of Ballymacrickett apply the criteria as set out by our school in the South Eastern Area Board’s Handbooks, copies of which are available at the school.
Prospective parents and children of other year groups are always welcome to visit, be shown around our school and learn about life at Ballymacrickett. All staff and children contribute to welcoming and supporting new arrivals and their families.
As soon as a child enters our school we liaise closely with parents to form supportive links for him/her and build firm foundations for their future learning. Parents will receive an information pack containing curricular and extra curricular information. It will also contain permission slips and consent forms to be signed and returned to the school office.
