6. Department of Education Incidental Inspection Tuesday 13th June 2023: Schools receive no notice for an incidental inspection and it involves observation of teaching and learning, school planning, Child Safeguarding and Anti-bullying policies. The DE Inspector visited a senior infant class, a first class and a special education setting. Staff were commended for their knowledge of curriculum and range of pedagogical skills, planning, active learning environments, assessment and their effortless classroom management. Children were noted to have the necessary skills for learning and achieving quality learner outcomes. Overall, the inspector noted a very collaborative and hardworking staff culture. She noted that the children were cared for, respected, appreciated and valued in the school.

As part of the Day of Celebrations, the children raised our Green Flag, took part in dancing and science experiments and enjoyed the amazing magic show with magician, Joe Daly. Check out our photos here!
