Mission Statement

St. Mary’s National School is a co-educational, Catholic primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, secure, caring, happy and friendly learning environment where children, parents, teachers, ancillary staff and board of management work in partnerships, where each individual is valued, encouraged and respected for their uniqueness and facilitated to reach their full potential in a positive atmosphere.

While St. Mary’s NS is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.

St. Mary’s NS will strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.

St. Mary’s NS will encourage the involvement of parents through home / school contacts and through their involvement in the school’s Parents’ Association.

St. Mary’s NS will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for people and property and to encourage in them the idea of being responsible.

St. Mary’s NS will promote gender equity amongst the teachers and pupils.
