About our

Scartaglen National School Kerry

Our mission statement

Scartaglen National School is a co-educational, Catholic primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.
While Scartaglen National School has a Catholic ethos, it also gives due recognition to all other religious beliefs.
Scartaglen National School will strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.
The school will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through their involvement in the Scartaglen National School branch of the National Parents Council.
Scartaglen National School will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for people and property and to encourage in them the idea of being responsible.
The school will promote gender equality amongst the teachers and pupils.
Déanfaimid iarracht Gaeilge a labhairt.
The school motto is:
There is no strength without unity
Ní neart go cur le chéile.
