We value highly our relationship with parents and the local community and seek to continue to work in partnership with parents/guardians to ensure the best interest of each child is provided for. Both parents and the wider school community play a meaningful role in the future development of the school plan. The board of management effectively oversees the operation of the school. School accommodation is of a high standard with the building and the grounds well maintained and developed. The board provides a wide range of resources to support learning and teaching. Very good working relationships are established among the board, the school and the community. The board undertakes the regular review and ratification of organisational plans.
