The school's board of management is properly constituted, meets regularly and receives updates on financial matters. The board upholds the characteristic spirit of the school and has a strong sense of community in which pupils, teachers, support staff, parents and the wider community work well together.
The board is committed to effective provision of education within the school and facilitates the formulation and adoption of policy documents as necessary. It has played an active role in the development of aspects of school policy including the enrolment policy, health and safety, code of discipline, anti-bullying and healthy eating policies. Curriculum policy is drafted by teams of teachers and at a later stage presented to the board for review and ratification. The board is conscious of its statutory obligations and ensures compliance with the Department of Education and Science regulations relating to matters such as the length of school day and year and promotion of pupils from class to class.
