Introduction – Share a Common Campus Our Lady's Girls Primary School,Ballinteer, Dublin 16. Car Parks 
- Front & Rear

Our Lady’s Primary Schools are situated in a place of great beauty, nestling at the foot of the Dublin Mountains and in close proximity to Marlay Park. The staff of Our Lady’s Schools provide many opportunities for stimulating and developing in young minds a love of interest in the beauty and wonder of nature.

The proximity of Our Lady’s Schools to the local Church of St. John the Evangelist and St Michael’s House promotes a spirit of co-operation and generates a strong and vibrant community identity within the Ballinteer area.

Ideally placed at the centre of Ballinteer and with all the facilities necessary to meet the needs of the new era in Irish education, Our Lady’s is geared for the future.

Our Lady’s Schools

Our Lady’s Schools are catholic schools, promoting and developing mutual respect among staff and pupils. Our Schools nurture an open, transparent and caring environment among all involved in the School Community. The teachers assist each child to use his/her schooling experience to achieve full potential in the social, academic, sporting and aesthetic spheres and in so doing enhance self-confidence and self-esteem.

We promote a policy of inclusion which caters for children with disabilities. The teachers and ancillary staff endeavour to foster a positive and affirming attitude to all in the School, children are encouraged to use their talents and gifts to make our Schools special. We show respect to all and welcome you.

The Schools have a highly-qualified and dedicated staff. The teaching staff are supported by learning support teachers enhancing the work in the classroom and ensuring that all the children achieve appropriate levels of literacy and numeracy during the course of their primary education. Our team of Special Needs Assistants work closely with the teaching staff to implement effective early intervention programmes.

The regular classroom teaching and supplementary teaching provide a co-ordinated response to the individual needs of our pupils.

At Our Lady’s we promote a partnership in learning between class teachers, learning-support teachers, Special Needs Assistants and parents to facilitate the effective implementation of our school policy.
