Ethos & Philosophy of Carndonagh Community School

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

Carndonagh Community School aims to provide an enriching environment for the academic, moral, spiritual and social education of its students and nurture the growth and development of all these students. The school ethos is Christian and each individual is respected regardless of religious persuasion and is guaranteed access to the educational facilities at the school. The Principal and the Board of Management encourage the active participation of parents and the local community.

In aspiring to achieve our Mission Statement, we recognise the responsibilities of the school community to respect the entitlement of all to a learning, teaching and working environment where the dignity of each person is recognised.

Pupils enrol in accordance with our Enrolment and Admissions Policy, Code of Behaviour and all policies approved by the Board of Management. C.C.S. promotes an inclusive ethos where the academic, social and personal development of each child is encouraged within the resources available to the school. Each pupil will be encouraged to reach their potential in a safe environment of shared respect where the rights and responsibilities of all are acknowledged The school rules reflect this spirit of respect.

Respect is the cornerstone of all our relationships. If parents, pupils, teachers, clerical & ancillary staff and school management engage with each other on the basis of respect, we will all be contributing to achieving our aspiration to create the best school in which to teach, learn, work and play. Everyone can earn respect, everyone can teach respect.

Carndonagh Community School has approved the Child Protection Guidelines.
