Parents/ Guardians considering sending their children to St. Malachy’s PS should contact the Principal who will arrange an appointment to visit. If the school’s current Enrolment Number and Admissions Number are exceeded, the Principal with the approval of the Board of Governors will select pupils for admission by applying the intake criteria as listed in order of priority.
Within each criterion preference will be given to pupils normally resident in Northern Ireland at the time of admission.
- Children of compulsory school age who are resident in St. Malachy’s Parish and children for whom St. Malachys’ Primary School is the nearest suitable school.
- Children of compulsory school age who, at the date of their application have a ‘child of the family’ currently enrolled in the school or who are the eldest child eligible to apply for admission to the school.
