About St. Brigid's

St.Brigid's is a primary school located in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. 

We cater for boys and girls in Junior and Senior Infants, and girls only from 1st class to 6th class. Our boys generally transfer to St.Mary's Boys' school at the end of Senior Infants.  We are currently building a new school to accommodate our growing school population. This new school will be called St Christopher's Primary School and will be co-educational from Junior Infants through to 6th class. We hope to be moving to the new school in 2017. The new school will be located on the site of the old secondary school on Haddington Road.

St.Brigid's is a Catholic school under the patronage of the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. However, we have pupils of many faiths other than Catholicism, and pupils of no faith.

We have fourteen mainstream classes, and a support teaching team of 6. Our teachers are fully qualified and have a vast range of experiences, talents and special interests. They work as a team to prepare, plan and deliver a high quality education to our pupils. Ongoing assessment and discussion of children's progress is integral to how we work.

Parents are kept informed of their children's progress by several methods: Parent-teacher meetings are held in November (Senior Infants to 6th class) or February (Junior Infants) each year; each child receives an end-of-year report and statement of their results in Standardised Tests (1st-6th classes); parents or teachers may request a meeting if they have a concern about their child and we endeavour to facilitate those meetings as quickly as possible.
