School Self Evaluation
We decided to evaluate our oral Irish, using data from a pupil survey, focus groups of parents and our Irish standardised test results.
Our standardised scores in Irish indicate a positive approach to oral Irish but this area needs to be developed further.
Therefore, this school year and going forward our focus is on oral Irish both formally in the classroom and informally throughout the school day.


St. Andrew’s National School is a Church of Ireland school under Church of Ireland patronage. In our school community we aspire to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where all pupils are equally valued and respected.

In St. Andrew’s N.S. we endeavour to

• Fulfil the physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional needs of the pupils

• Provide stimulus and opportunities to enable pupils to reach their full potential

• To foster a relaxed and happy atmosphere that is conducive to learning
