What do our parents say?...

"BPS has a very warm family feel and provides an innovative, encouraging and supportive learning environment that brings the best out of each child."


"I have had one child complete her primary school days at this school and now have an additional needs child making her way through the school. When I contacted the school regarding an additional needs pupil being able to start in primary one they gave me guidance and support in making it a happy and relaxed time for her starting.They have been a pillar of support throughout the past six years with her and have worked to find what helps her settle in each day and if any issues arise unexpectedly. The praise and rewards they give the pupils for many things such as being kind, great teamwork, great school work etc boosts the children’s confidence so much and this reflects in a positive attitude towards school which helps a child grow. I wouldn’t hesitate in sending anymore children to a school where they are nurtured and loved and helped to grow into the best person they can be."


"Our family has been so privileged to be part of the Ballyclare Primary School Family in recent years - as 3 of our children are present pupils at the school. From entry to the school at Primary 1, through to Primary 7, we have experienced firsthand how the school encourages effort and endeavour in education whilst ensuring that the excellent pastoral care the children consistently receive is always evident. The ethos of the school is apparent through how all members of staff treat the children - all we can say is our children go into school with a smile on their face and come out of school with a smile on their face!"


"Since our relocation to Northern Ireland, our boys have found a warm and welcoming home at BPS. They continue to grow and develop in the safe and encouraging atmosphere BPS provides. Our thanks go to Mrs Mulligan and her team." 


"The dedicated staff at BPS have championed my children at every stage of their development. They embrace each child's individuality, quickly address any areas of concern and nurture the child's talents to allow them to flourish. We have been particularly blessed as one of our children has a physical disability. I am so glad that we chose BPS for our children and they are thriving as a result."


"Ballyclare Primary has provided a wonderful learning experience for both our boys, developing them both academically and as individuals. Although the school is large, it feels warm and friendly. Mrs Mulligan and her teachers are amazingly committed. As parents we couldn't recommend the school highly enough."
