Ethos and

Core Principals

Goatstown/Stillorgan Educate Together N.S, like all Educate Together schools in the Republic of Ireland, is founded on four core principles.

All children have equal access to the school and no one religion or world view is given priority over another within the school.

All children are encouraged to explore their full range of abilities and are provided with equal opportunities regardless of their gender or identity.

We run schools on a democratic basis, encouraging active participation by parents and students in the daily life of the school whilst positively affirming the professional role of the teachers.

Our child-centred approach means that we put children at the heart of all policies and practices and involve them in decision-making where appropriate.
