St . Mary’s National School is a Catholic, co-educational Primary School under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. While St. Mary’s provides Religious Education in accordance with the practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, the school recognises and is respectful of other religious beliefs and none.
St. Mary’s aims to create an inclusive, respectful, safe, caring and happy environment in which all children will be enabled to reach their full potential. St. Mary’s aims to create a rich learning environment where the children can flourish and develop both cognitively and emotionally. In the context of a broad curriculum, St. Mary’s aims to develop the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and social wellbeing of each child. Our aim is to create a school which is a happy, fulfilling place for children, full of friendship and learning.
Our school community, which includes the teaching and ancillary staff and the Board of Management, work in partnership to meet the needs of our pupils. We recognise the uniqueness of each child and we aim to nurture and promote the value and dignity of each person in the school and in so doing, develop a respect for diversity and difference. We recognise parents as the primary educators and we encourage their support and collaboration in the education of their children.
