General Information

Parents form a very important part of our school community. Parents can promote very positive attitudes towards education with their children. We recognise that communication between the school and home is of critical importance in the development of our students. We value very highly the contribution that Parents can make to the life of the school and we welcome ideas from Parents on how they can become involved with us in the education of their children.

Meeting Teachers

Parent Teacher meetings are scheduled for the first term of each year. If a Parent wishes to meet with a Teacher to discuss any aspect of the progress of their child then an appointment should be made through the school office. Teachers should not be approached at assembly time or during class time to discuss an issue in relation to a particular child as it is not possible for the Teacher to supervise a class while engaged in such a conversation. All meetings with Teachers should be held in a respectful way.

Standardised Testing

Tests form part of the ongoing assessment process of all students. Tests are held in subjects throughout the school year. Standardised tests, which are conducted in all Irish primary school take place towards the end of the last term. The purpose of all tests is to give information on the progress a child is making in learning and also to give information on the obstacles that are preventing them from learning. Information from tests informs the teaching of children in subsequent lessons. Detailed information on this process is to be found on the NCCA.IE website.

Parents Association

Every parent in the school is welcome to join the Parent's Association. Our Parent's Association are important partners in our efforts to provide the best educational opportunity to all of our students. The Association is a voluntary group of Parents. The office holders are elected for a two year term at each alternate AGM. The main aims of the association are to:

  1. Inform Parents of developments in education and in the school.
  2. Foster co-operation between Parents, Teachers and School Management.
  3. Assist in extra curricular activities where appropriate.
  4. Fundraise for equipment and any other needs that may be present in the school.
Any Parent in the school can join the association by contacting the current Chairperson Karen O Farrell through the school office.
