Caherleaheen National School, formerly Ballyseede Boys and Girls National Schools, has served this area since 1873. We are a child-centred Primary School which respects individual difference. We offer a caring environment in which each child’s contribution is valued and in which each child’s needs are acknowledged and met. Educational programs are carefully structured to reinforce success, rather than failure.

Our approach promotes and encourages the integration of pupils with special needs.  Additional staff in our school include Learning Support Teachers and Special Needs Assistants.

If you are a student,parent or a member of our local community please continue your visit as this site is primarily for you.

I have taught in this wonderful school since 1994 and have enjoyed every minute of my time here. How times have changed! In those days,we had a small 3 room school with very basic facilities. Today, we have grown into a 200+ pupil,first class facility thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff and parents. Our staff are dedicated and capable professionals who are committed to providing a high quality education for all of our students. Our students are friendly,courteous and eager to learn and our parents are generous and supportive. They view the school as an essential part of family and community life.

We are all proud of our school. It is a wonderful place to work and learn as I am sure you will discover as you visit our site.
