  • “The leadership team and staff have a shared strategic vision for providing high quality education which values every child. The principal, well supported by the vice-principal, provides highly effective and inspirational leadership. The leadership team, co-ordinators and staff work diligently and with increasing collegiality to bring about improvement in key aspects of the school’s overall provision, and place an appropriate focus on improving the children’s learning experiences and the standards they attain.”
  • “The quality of the provision for pastoral care in the school is outstanding. The philosophy of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust charter pervades the life and work of the school and is exemplified in the daily practice which fosters and values the children’s qualities and strengths. Through a number of forums including the school council, the views of the children are sought, valued and used to inform developments in the school’s provision. A strong sense of community and mutual respect between the staff and the children is evident in the school; all of the staff are highly committed to the care and well being of the children.”
  • “The school has excellent links and partnerships with the wider community including community workers, and a variety of external support agencies as well as international links through the Edmund Rice Schools Trust. The children’s learning experiences are extended and enriched as a result of the opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities and events beyond the classroom.”
