Make your Choice

An Online Patronage Process System (OPPS) has been developed by the Department of Education and Skills to provide objective information to all parents which will allow them to make an informed choice about their preferred model of patronage for their child’s education. Parental preferences will be submitted by parents online. We hope you will choose LMETB as the patron of the new eight classroom primary school in Dunshaughlin.

Becoming a Community National School

As Education and Training Boards (ETBs) expand the growth of Community National Schools (CNSs) across the country, other primary schools have become more aware of the model and are interested in exploring it.

 

These publications aims to support these schools by:

  • Describing the core values characteristic spirit of a CNS
  • Describing the supports available to CNSs from ETBs
  • Guiding schools on how to approach the process of exploring becoming a CNS with their school community
  • Providing an overview of the policies and practices that would be in place once the school becomes a CNS
