MISSION STATEMENT

St. Clare’s Primary School is a co-educational Catholic Primary School. We in St. Clare’s aim to create an ordered and orderly environment in which children feel secure, in which self-esteem is fostered and in which children can make progress at their work. We aim at a general education, which embodies high academic standards allied to a broad range of experience, which will develop the whole child and prepare him/her for the demands of further education and the rapidly changing society in which we now live.

St. Clare’s Primary School provides religious education for pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and promotes the formation of the pupils in the Catholic faith.

St. Clare’s Primary School encourages parents to become involved in what children do at school and we hope that every parent will take advantage of the opportunities to find out about their child’s work progress and response in school. We also encourage the involvement of parents through their involvement in the Parent Association.

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

Déanfaimid iarracht Gaeilge á labhairt chomh minic agus is féidir.

We see our school as the extension of the home; a place where children are not just taught, but where the teachers and children work, play and pray together. The ethos of the school is Catholic and in this atmosphere the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth of the children is fostered in the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare encouraging pupils and staff to care for each other and the world around us and to pray and work for peace in our school, parish and the world.

The school motto is
“Deus Meus et Omnia”
which means
“My God and My All”
