Tamnamore Primary School was a primary school on the outskirts of Tamnamore village, about five miles from Dungannon, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The pupils come from the local area. It is a state controlled school for girls and boys aged from 3 to 11 and has 50 pupils. It is within the Southern Education and Library Board area. The SELB is forcing it to join Killyman Primary School, work is currently being carried out at Killyman to make the school capable of having about thirty extra pupils. Many parents were opposed to the school being closed as there is a family atmosphere in the school which would be lost when it becomes much bigger. The pupils from Tamnamore will be bussed to Killyman after the amalgamation.
The School is now closed.

School inspection, 2005
A Department of Education (Northern Ireland) inspection in May 2005 found that the school had a "very positive ethos based on good relationships at all levels", with a relaxed and family atmosphere in the school. A wide range of extra-curricular activities were available and included sports, a chess club, French lessons and cycling proficiency. Relationships and cross-community links had also been established with other schools in the area. Teaching quality was "always satisfactory and, on occasions, very good".
The teacher for P1-4 is Mrs. Johnston P5-7 is Mr. Hull
Mrs. Flack was the teacher for P3-5 but was made redundant.
