Principal's Welcome

Dear Pupils, Parents and Visitors,

I am delighted to welcome you to our website; which I hope will provide you with a window into school life at Cregagh Primary – a school that truly puts children first.

Our school is a caring, friendly, family-based school were every member of staff works to provide the best educational experience and pastoral care for each individual child.  Our school motto, “Together, we make a difference” reflects the importance we place on working together in partnership with whole families and our local community.

Cregagh Primary a "Controlled School" - this means we are open to all and we welcome everybody.  We are an increasingly diverse school, with children from families from all around the world attending.  We are also the only primary school in Northern Ireland's to have a specialist Deaf Unit.  

Local children, international children, deaf children - we are all one big happy family!

As principal and former pupil of Cregagh Primary, I am immensely proud of our school, our community and particularly our wonderful pupils. 

Cregagh Primary School is the beating heart South-East Belfast, where we have served families since 1939.

I look forward to our learning journey together: children, parents and school.

Thank you for your interest in our school and I hope you enjoy exploring our website.

If you are a parent of a primary school aged child and would like to come visit us, you are most welcome to make an appointment by phoning 028 90 401246 or emailing

We'd be delighted to meet you and your children!

Mr Heggarty B.Ed., M.Ed. PQH (Principal)

Safer Schools - Release of Children & Young People's Version of the App

“Following the recent launch of the Department of Education’s app on the Safer Schools platform, provided by iNEQE Safeguarding Group on a trial basis during this COVID-19 crisis, I am today launching the children & young people’s version of this app.

The app, downloaded on either the App Store or Google Play, can be accessed by children & young people at both primary and post primary level – please note the post primary app has been split into 3 versions depending on the age of the young person to ensure the content is relevant to them. I would also encourage those staff members and parents who have not yet downloaded their version of the app to do so as the support provided, particularly during this difficult Covid-19 period, is invaluable.”
Peter Weir MLA,
Minister for Education
