Welcome to Carniny Primary School
You are very welcome to Carniny Primary School.
We are situated on a picturesque site on the outskirts of Ballymena and have 282 pupils on roll aged 4-11.
We are immensely proud of our reputation for high academic standards, pastoral care, extra curricular provision and our warm and friendly atmosphere. We have high expectations of our children, parents and staff and benefit from the positive relationships with our parents. The work of the school has been testified by the many awards received.
Please come and see Carniny first hand and experience its warm happy atmosphere - you are assured of a warm welcome.
Carniny is great because it gives everyone an opportunity to do what they do best.
Comment from P5 pupil (October 2012):
Carniny Primary School has well exceeded my expectations. The caring attitude is evident in all staff members and is mirrored in the pupil’s attitudes. Children are actively encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life and are openly rewarded and praised for exemplary behaviour. Teachers openly interact with parents making the school environment more inviting. Parentmail and +Pay have been fantastic additions to ease communication between school and parents. Brilliant school.
Comment from parent (June 2012)
The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is outstanding. This is evident through: the caring and friendly ethos within the school; the excellent behaviour of the children; the regular celebration of the children’s successes which builds their self-esteem; and the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities which enhance the children’s learning and social development.
