Dundonald Primary School

It is important for a child to attend school regularly and maintain a pattern of good attendance to take full advantage of the educational opportunities. 

Dundonald Primary School recognises its responsibility to ensure pupils are in school and on time, therefore having access to learning for the maximum number of days and hours.
