Strong Home/School Partnerships;

In Ballymurray National School we promote and support the development of strong school and home partnerships, which are vital for improve our pupils' learning outcomes and personal development. We value parental input through a varierty of different channels including individual meetings with parents and our parents association.We communicate with parents/guardians via email and text through our school management system Aladdin in addition to notifications on our school website. Parent-Teacher meetings take place in November each year where parenst have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress. Other meetings may take place as requested by parent or teacher. We also have a Welcome Day for the parents of incoming Junior Infants in May.

We are very appreciative of the support which parents/guardians give to the school and to the school’s various activities. We encourage you to:

  • Take an active part in the Parents’ Association.

  • Read notes/letters taken home by the children.

  • Check homework and sign it every night.

  • Return forms promptly.

  • Contact to the class teacher/Principal by phone or email if you have any concerns regarding school.

  • Be positive in your attitude to school.
