School Religious Ethos

 

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 our school pupils experience a sense of caring and belonging. We work in partnership with parents and the community to empower pupils to live in and contribute to an ever changing society and to learn to act as responsible pupils and later self-sufficient adults who care about others and their environment.

St. Andrew’s is part of the local church community with strong links to the Parish church in Lucan village.

We teach the Primary curriculum including religious education. The essentials of the Christian faith are explored and pupils are encouraged to think independently and develop a personal faith by which they may later live.

Pupils are required to participate in all subject areas and attend all school religious ceremonies.

As part of the culture of this school children are informed about Santa Claus, Halloween and the expectation that surrounds this.  We do not permit any other view within school.
