School Ethos

Martinstown NS is a rural co-educational primary school with a Catholic Ethos under the patronage of Bishop Brendan Leahy.

The vision for our school is set out in the following mission statement:

Here in Martinstown NS we aim to provide a caring, happy and secure learning environment where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and met. We aim to foster and develop pupils’ talents and strengths and to enable each child to reach their full potential and grow into confident and caring members of the community.

We as a staff strive to maintain the highest standards of practice in teaching and learning in our school, providing a child centred education for all our pupils and enabling them to become life-long learners.

We are committed to the spirit of partnership whereby the whole school community: students, school staff, Board of Management and parents work together to achieve a common goal.
