Mission Statement and Ethos

St. Kevin’s is a school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure learning environment, where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of our pupils are identified and addressed.

While St. Kevin’s is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also gives due recognition to children of all other religious beliefs and none.

We aim to provide an appropriate, stimulating and broadly challenging education for all of our pupils. We aim to encourage language learning and the appreciation of languages and their place in our culture and heritage.

St. Kevin’s encourages the involvement of parents through home-school contacts and through their involvement in the development and growth of the Parents’ Association.

At St. Kevin’s we endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to instil in the pupils respect for themselves, for other people and for property and to encourage the development of personal responsibility. We aim to prepare our pupils for their place in a modern multicultural society by actively promoting equality and by celebrating the diversity we have within our school community.

We strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.

St. Kevin’s encourages our pupils to have respect for diversity, environmentally awareness and appreciation of our community.

School Ethos

St. Kevin’s National School encourages and guides each and every child in developing fully their own gifts while caring for one another in the way Jesus taught us. As a school community it values the contribution of all its members, respects their uniqueness and responds to their individual needs in a caring and supportive way. It sees itself as an extension of the family. As a parish school it encourages pupils participate in parish activities appropriate for their age.
