Ballaugh School
Ballaugh School is a small rural primary school of around 80 pupils. There are 3 full-time teachers, two part-time teachers and two Nursery Nurses. Reception children are taught as a separate class. The other classes contain two year-groups each. We hope that the children enjoy coming to Ballaugh School. We think that they enjoy the day is by working hard and cooperating with others. We regard good behavior as very important . In addition, we do not tolerate any forms of bullying.
We have an attractive garden at the back of the School that also serves as a playing field. It is surrounded by mature trees and is a beautiful area in the summer. The Ballaugh River flows past the end of the garden. At the front of the School, children all cultivate small garden plots in the summer and plant their own flowers and shrubs. Last year the School won a special award in the Island in Bloom Competition.
We seek to provide a broad and balanced curriculum while, at the same time, providing very good teaching in the basics. The day starts at 8.55 am and all children finish together at 3.30 pm promptly unless a child is staying for a club. Clubs go on until 4.30 or 4.45 pm.
Good quality dinners are available at £8.00 per week or children can bring a packed lunch.
Pupils in y5 and 6 have the opportunity during April of going to the Venture Centre near Ramsey for a five-day residential course involving abseiling, orienteering, assault-course etc. We have also recently set up an orienteering course within the School grounds.
The children all wear school uniform of red sweatshirts and white polos. These are embroidered with the school badge and ordered through the school office. There is a separate optional summer uniform.
We are involved in the local community and the children play a big part in the annual Horticultural Show. They also perform drama, poems etc at fairs in the area.
At the end of year 6, children from this School move on to Ramsey Grammar School or Queen Elizabeth II High School in Peel.
We issue a newsletter to parents every Monday. It contains details of clubs for the coming week and keeps parents up-to-date on other aspects of school life. Children’s work is often published in the newsletter.


There are 4 mixed aged classes in the school.
Class 1 - Reception ( Mrs Watling & Mrs White )
Class 2 - Years 1 and 2 ( Miss Quayle & Mrs Leece )
Class 3 - Years 3 and 4 ( Mrs Hewings )
Class 4 - Years 5 and 6 ( Mrs Bale & Mr Hartigan )


Ballaugh School has an active fund raising committee called "The Friends of Ballaugh School" - FOBS for short.
Parents meet at the school every two months either on a Tuesday or a Wednesday evening with the Headmaster and his colleagues and discuss various fund raising issues and hold many social events.
FOBs have raised a tremendous amount of money in the past few years with the effort, support and participation of all the parents and supporters.
For a small school we have raised sufficient funds to enable the school to purchase additional computers over and above what the Board of Education supply within the school budgets, playground equipment, staging equipment, presents for the children at Christmas and various other incidentals, which have assisted the teachers and the children within the school and their curriculum.
Any enquiries concerning the Friends of Ballaugh School (FOBS) can be made either via the school or direct to the current Chairperson Mrs Sharon Leaton on telephone no: 07624 481071.
