Our Vision


Ballymacrickett Primary School and Nursery Unit promotes learning for life and high achievement by working with children to:

  • practise the Catholic faith in their daily lives.
  • have high self esteem – respecting themselves, others, our local community and the world around us.
  • recognise their talents and acquire the knowledge and skills to be their individual best.
  • become happy, enthusiastic, highly motivated life-long learners.
  • be able to work independently and collaboratively.
  • gain the necessary skills to equip them for our ever changing world.

We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing quality in:

  • a Catholic ethos of support and encouragement, where diversity is embraced and success is celebrated.
  • a broad and challenging curriculum, ensuring inclusion and equality of opportunity.
  • a learning partnership between school, home, parish and the wider community.
  • a safe, healthy, stimulating learning environment.
  • innovative teaching and an investigative approach to learning.

We demonstrate our commitment to working as a learning community by:

  • continually striving for improvement by working together towards common goals.
