Dublin 7 Educate Together National School
Fitzwilliam Place North
A message from Lenny Abrahamson, Educate Together Parent, Filmmaker & Educate Together 120 Ambassador
Dublin 7 Educate Together presently has a double-stream class in each year. Originally a single-stream school, in September 2009 it introduced a second stream at Junior Infant level. It now has over 450 pupils, 25 teachers, and 9 SNAs. Subject to there being demand for places, it is proposed that it will continue to take two Junior Infant classes each September. As it is a recognised national school it is subject to the Education Act 1998 and other relevant legislation.
The school's patron body is Educate Together and the school subscribes to the principles and ethos of the Educate Together model. The school is: multi-denominational, i.e., all children have equal right of access, and the social, racial, cultural and religious background of each child is respected. The school is also co-educational, child-centred and democratic in character. Patricia Clerkin is the school's principal.
We welcome you and your child to our school and hope that you will have many happy years with us.
This booklet gives an overview of our school and explains many of our school procedures. We ask you to familiarise yourselves with them and discuss them with your child. Please ensure that any adult bringing or collecting your child to/from school is also aware of them.
We revise the booklet annually and welcome any suggestions you may have.
