Fáilte Isteach - Welcome!


Welcome to Newport National School, a co-educational primary school in County Mayo, which follows the national curriculum for children aged four to thirteen in mainstream classes.

Our school was established in 1977 and is dedicated to the Holy Family.  We promote a welcoming and inclusive culture where the value of the uniqueness of each child is appreciated.

The staff - comprising seventeen teachers, eight special needs assistants a secretary and an administrative principal - work collaboratively to maintain the highest standard of teaching and learning for our pupils.

We offer a state of the art campus which boasts a multi use games area, a large astro turf pitch and a wonderful indoor sports hall, in addition to the most modern teaching facilities, all of which enable us to provide a high quality teaching and learning environment.

We also offer a wide-ranging after-school programme which makes use of our modern facilities.

Our school puts a firm focus on the individual child, offering a warm welcome to all students. We have a committed Special Education Needs team which devises education programmes, tailored to meet differing needs.

We have an Explorers class for children with autism. Children enrolled in our Explorers’ class also integrate into mainstream classes as they progress through the school.

We welcome visitors!
