Ethos Statement

Scoil Mhuire Buachaillí is a Catholic primary school, under the patronage of the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin.  It was built in 1929.

The school is a centre of excellence where professional standards are maintained and where pupils learn in a safe, happy environment.

Teachers and staff are sensitive to the needs and circumstances of each pupil, irrespective of race, colour, creed or ability.

The culture of the school is determined by the young age of the pupils where the uniqueness of each child is nurtured and developed holistically by the schools child-centred approach to learning.

The policies, practices and attitudes of the school, such as those in our dealings with pupils, staff, parents and the wider community are inspired by the values of the Christian Gospel.  Prayer and reflection are regular features of the school day thus nurturing in the children, a living relationship with God.  The celebration of the liturgical seasons and the sacraments is part of the rhythm of the school year and the children are given the opportunity to participate in these celebrations.

The school fosters an active partnership with the parents/guardians which contribute to the positive learning experience of the pupils.
