Mission Statement

Mission Statement

We believe we can make a difference by providing a quality education to our students in a caring and respectful environment. We value respect, fair play and everyone’s right to be himself or herself. We aim to help our students to develop a sense of their own unique worth, to become their best selves and to respect the rights of others. We strive for good relationships between our students, our staff and our parents. We educate our students not only for now, but also for life.

The above Mission Statement seeks to include the core values of the school and is also aimed at incorporating some additional points made by staff.

The term ‘mission’ implies a journey and an agreed mission statement can provide a framework for present practice and future planning.

Analysis

“We believe we can make a difference...” suggest that we, as a staff, intend to have a positive influence on the young people in our care and is a statement of the highest moral purpose in teaching.

“... a quality education...” includes not only the area of curriculum but also an insistence on the highest standards of teaching and learning and the balancing of academic excellence with the social, personal and spiritual development of each student.

“... a caring and respectful environment...” refers to our pastoral care services such as the Tutor/Year Head system, the counselling and chaplaincy services and to the many professional and personal interactions between staff and students.

“We value respect, fair play and everyone’s right to be himself or herself” These are values which are enshrined in the anti-bullying document which is on display in each classroom.

“We aim to help our students to develop a sense of their own unique worth, to become their best selves and to respect the rights of others” This reflects the aspirations that we can help each student to be happy in themselves, to have high self-esteem and to uncover and develop their talents.

“We strive for good relations between our students, our staff and our parents” This emphasises the concept of partnership that is essential to our success.

“We educate our students not only for now, but also for life” As a school, we have been in the forefront of curricular change. We have introduced programmes such as the Transition Year Option (TYO) the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) and subjects including technology, computers and social, personal and health education. These curriculum developments make the education we offer more relevant to the long-term needs of our students.
