Report Pupil Absence

If a child is absent for any reason, parents/carers should notify the school, explaining their absence by using the ‘Report Pupil Absence’ button on our school website.


You are very welcome to Magherafelt Primary School.

Our motto is “Learn, Enjoy, Aspire,” this is what we aim to do in our school everyday. We hope this comes across in all aspects of our website and our school.

We are a controlled primary school which means we are inclusive, diverse and open to all. We serve the community of Magherafelt. Our school is situated on a picturesque and spacious site with a state of the art school building on the Castledawson road in Magherafelt. We are immensely proud of our reputation for high academic standards, pastoral care, extra curricular provision and our warm and friendly atmosphere.

We have high expectations of our children, parents and staff and benefit from the positive relationships with our parents. The work of the school has been testified by the many awards we have received. Please come and see Magherafelt Primary School first hand and experience our happy atmosphere - you are assured of a warm welcome.
