Ballaugh is served by bus routes, 5, 5A, 5C, 6A, 6C, picking up and dropping off on Main Road A3 outside, and opposite, the Raven pub.

Only School buses serve station Road.

If travelling by car from Kirk Michael, Station Road is a left turn immediately after Ballaugh Bridge.

Parking at Ballaugh School is limited. There are two small lay-bys in front of the school which are predominantly utilised by staff.

The small pedestrain gate to the northern end of the playground is deemed as “narrow” in a recent accessibilty audit.

Best access for wheelchairs is the main “double gate” closest to the Village.

There is, as yet, no disabled parking bay at Ballaugh School.

Visitors and parents park away from the school, beyond the double yellow line traffic restrictions. Should you need to access the school, please phone ahead so that we can organise parking 897311

On arrival at Ballaugh School access to the main building is via the playground which is accessed primarily through a single gate next to the noticeboard. The main gate can be opened to facilitate easier access. The main entrance is at the front of the school via a sloped ramp involving 2 x 90 degree turns from the playground and a small threshold. The double front doors can be opened to make access easier. The rear access to the school building involves a step and there is no ramp. Please telephone the school on arrival so that access can be given through the larger gate and front doors.

The main teaching areas are on one level with a ramp and small threshold to a "mobile classroom". This ramp is accessed through a single gate. Part of the school building (pupils' kitchen, staffroom and headteachers office) is up stairs. There is no lift to access this area.

There is one accessible toilet located at the centre of the building.

Accessibility Plan

Schools are required to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for children with disabilities under the Isle of Man Equality Act 2017, to alleviate any substantial disadvantage that a disabled child faces in comparison to non-disabled children. This can include, for example, the provision of a staff support, specialist equipment and resources or adjustments to premises.
