Mission Statement

Star of the Sea National School seeks to cherish and challenge children in a safe, secure  and attractive environment. We aim to provide quality learning experiences that are engaging, enriching and enjoyable through a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.

The school sees itself as an integral part of the parish and in partnership with parents and the Church seeks to nurture the Catholic faith through religious education, preparing for the Sacraments and through the ethos of the school. This ethos is best exemplified through the quality of all relationships in the school, which are based on respect and dignity for each person – child, parent, teacher, principal, secretary, caretaker, classroom assistant, cleaner and visitor to the school.

Star of the Sea National School seeks to be a warm and welcoming place respectful and accommodating of diversity in race, culture, religion, gender and ability. We strive to provide an inclusive environment responsive to the needs of all our students. We aim to promote equity in all areas and to provide extra support to students when needed.

We value most highly our relationship with parents and the local community and seek to continue to work in partnership with parents to ensure the best for each child is provided for.

The school is a learning community. We promote and value lifelong learning for all, including staff. We urge you to work in partnership with us reinforcing for children the share values of home and school.
