Mission Statement

Our school aims to provide a happy, secure, learning environment where children, parents/guardians, teachers, ancillary staff and Board of Management work in partnership, where each individual is valued, encouraged and respected for their uniqueness and facilitated to reach their full potential in a positive atmosphere.

This will enable the child to live a full life as a child, and will equip him/her to avail himself/herself of further education so that he/she may go on to live a full and useful life as an adult in society.

As a staff committed to the realisation of these objectives, our main aim is to create a happy, secure environment for our pupils in which there is a sense of good order and a reasonable approach to discipline. In this way, a large group can be organised so that the school can operate smoothly for the benefit of all.
