Guidelines for parents

St. Columba’s National School is a Catholic primary school which seeks to ensure that all its pupils are educated and nurtured in an environment that is caring, considerate and tolerant. St. Columba’s N.S. aims to help children to develop skills, attitudes and values which will bring the greatest happiness and fulfilment to their lives. We prioritise the safety, security and well being of all pupils as a prerequisite to their growth and development. As a staff, we seek to help children develop morally, socially, physically and cognitively to the best of their ability. The achievement of this aim informs all of the planning processes and activities which occur in our school.

Parents and teachers are partners in the children’s education, with co-operation and communication between home and school being vital ingredients in the educational process. We each share the same aim – the well being of the children in our care. This information for parents of our pupils has been prepared with the express purpose of sharing information with you concerning our school rules and routines.
