Parent comments: 

‘Derrychrin is an excellent school. We could not be happier with the delivery of the curriculum/ standard of Pastoral Care and overall ethos of the school. Our children have been blessed with an amazing school experience and we are confident that if problems or issues were to arise, that the best approach and attention would be given.’

 

‘My children love attending Derrychrin Primary School. We as parents are delighted with their academic and social progress; and the opportunities that have been afforded to them during this time. Credit is due to the excellent teaching and learning assistants for their caring and support throughout the year.’

 

‘The teachers and staff are doing a fantastic job. My children enjoy going to school and I know they are well cared for and safe. The school is an integral part of the community and has a real family feel. I know the staff really care about the pupils and treat them like their own children. Every child has the opportunity to succeed and can access a broad range of learning experiences. We are thankful for everything you do.’
