“Our school is run according to the four principles of Educate Together: Equality based, Co-educational, Child-centred & Democratically run”

Our Ethos

All children have equal rights of access to the school. Children are enrolled on a ‘first come-first served’ basis.  Children from all social, ethnic and cultural groups, and of all religions and of non-religious backgrounds are welcome and equally respected in the school.
The school offers a child-centred education in which the teacher facilitates and guides the child’s learning through both formal and informal methods while encouraging the child to be an active participant in his/her own learning. Each child is encouraged to learn at her/his pace and individual learning needs are met in so far as class size allows. Interaction between the teacher, child and parent is actively encouraged.
The school is run by the Board of Management and parents are encouraged to participate on the Board, Parent Teacher Association, and in other voluntary activities in the school.  Members of the school community are invited to participate in consultation and feedback processes.
The Spiritual, Ethical curriculum supports and implements the guiding principles and ethos of the school by covering a wide range of religious, moral, social and ethical issues, with no specific emphasis in any one religion.

Note from our Principal

Wicklow Educate Together National School is run under the patronage of Educate Together, which supports our activities, makes representations to the Department of Education and Skills on behalf of our school, and ensures that the characteristic spirit and ethos of the school is maintained.
Sinead Watson, Principal
