Cregagh Primary School, Mount Merrion Avenue


Dear Pupils, Parents and Visitors.

I am delighted to welcome you to Cregagh Primary School’s 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 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 School is very special to me; it’s very much part of my DNA!   As a former pupil of the school myself, I am intensely proud of our school, our community and particularly our pupils.

I look forward to our learning journey together: children, parents and school. Thank you for your continued support of our school and I hope you enjoy exploring our website.

Mr Heggarty (Principal)



Safer Schools App for Parents/Carers



I am today launching the Department of Education’s app on the Safer Schools platform which has been provided by iNEQE Safeguarding Group on a trial basis during this COVID-19 crisis. The app is currently used widely across the rest of the UK.

These are challenging times for all of us and the safeguarding & child protection support provided through this app will be of use to yourselves as professionals, the parent/carers and pupils of your school. Of particular note will be the specific resources linked COVID-19 contained within the resources section and I would encourage you to review these at your earliest opportunity.

The app, downloaded on either the App Store or Google Play, can be accessed by yourselves as professionals and by parents/carers and links to a landing page, welcome pack including relevant QR codes and social media graphics are provided below. I would encourage you to circulate this amongst parents/carers as it provides invaluable information and support during these times when children & people can be at home for extended periods and are perhaps experiencing anxiety about the ongoing situation.

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.”
