Mission Statement

Donaghey Primary School seeks to encourage pupils to become lifelong learners who take responsibility for their personal development.  All stakeholders in the Donaghey Primary School community will strive to ensure every pupil is given encouragement to thrive.  The school will do this and also promote the importance of the home and the community in the child’s development.
