Vision Statement

Our vision statement was composed by the teachers, pupils, parents and Board of Management of Drumacruttin National School.

Our vision is to provide a happy, caring, safe and stimulating environment where children will recognise and achieve their full potential so that they can make their best contribution to their own lives and to society.


School Ethos

Drumacruttin National School is a school community where all pupils are equally valued and respected and experience a sense of caring, belonging and fairness. Their spiritual, moral and religious development is encouraged as is their intellectual, social and academic development.

Ours is a community where moral values such as honesty, truthfulness, justice, fairness, sensitivity to others and civic responsibility are nurtured and protected.

Our school is part of he local church community of St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland and the Rector visits the school on a regular basis.

The work of the school is conducted in an atmosphere of tolerance and respect for religious differences. Our enrolment policy allows those of other faiths or none to become pupils.

Religious Education occupies a central position in the school curriculum and is regarded as a core subject.

The traditions and teachings of the Church of Ireland inform the position taken in regard to moral issues which arise in the teaching of secular subjects.

We recognise the complementary roles of parents and teachers in educating the young and, in partnership, we pursue the common aim of educating our students according to Christian principles.

The school nurtures freedom of thought and a personal relationship with God.
