Ballintotas National School


Céad Míle Fáilte to Ballintotas National School’s website. Our school is a mixed school situated in East Cork. We serve a growing population and currently have 116 pupils, of whom we are very proud. We hope that you find our website useful and thank you for taking the time to visit.


Our school has a Catholic ethos and is under the patronage of the Bishop of Cloyne. We aim to promote the full and harmonious development of all aspects of our pupils: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual. Our school also strives to accommodate individuality. We welcome children of all faiths and backgrounds, while acknowledging the right of each pupil to education in a disruption free environment.


Our staff consists of: 5 mainstream teachers, 2 Resource/Learning Support teachers, 2 Special Needs Assistants and a school secretary. The members of our staff are diligent, kind, caring and above all hard working. They promote a positive, progressive environment in which our pupils thrive.


Our Board of Management plays a vital role in the running of our school. It provides leadership and strong moral guidance as well as fostering a positive atmosphere for the holistic education of the children of Ballintotas N.S.


Our school has an active Parents’ Association who work hard during the year, organising various fundraising events and helping out with school activities. The parent/guardian body form a vital part of the whole school community.
