A new school year begins...

I am delighted to welcome you to Damhead Primary School’s website. We are a controlled primary school situated on the outskirts of Coleraine. The school was established in 1933 with the new school being built in 2003.

We have one class of each year group and currently employ 9 teachers and 8 Classroom Assistants. We work together as a team at Damhead Primary School to create a happy, secure and inclusive environment for every member of our school community. We have a very child centred approach and are dedicated to ensuring that all aspects of learning have the children’s needs and interests at the centre.

We promote a Christian and caring ethos and aim to develop in all levels within school, a culture of respect, teamwork/collaboration, resilience, self-discipline, honesty, empathy and responsibility. Our ethos is reflected in all areas of school life and we feel happy children, staff and parents who feel valued and involved are paramount to positive learning experiences and a successful school.

We are able to provide a wraparound service from 8.00am until 5.15pm . The children can attend Breakfast Club from 8.00-8.30am and Hop Club from 2-5.15pm . We also have an extensive programme of after school activities and continue to look at new and exciting opportunities.

Our school has an open door policy and I try to make myself as available as I can on a daily basis. If you wish to speak to myself or see around the school please do not hesitate to contact me on 028 70353641 or by email.
