Woodstock Educate Together National School is an equality-based, co-educational, child-centered and democratically-run primary school under the patronage of Educate Together. The school is currently located in its temporary accommodation in Modular buildings opposite the Newtownmountkennedy Community Centre.
We opened on Thursday the 29th of August 2019 with one Junior Infant class. Each each year we take in ONE Junior Infant class until we eventually will have every class up to sixth class.
The school operates under Department of Education rules and regulations, follows the National Primary School Curriculum, and is subject to the same level of inspection from the State Inspectorate as all other Primary Schools in the country.
Our ethos is inclusive; and it is our aim to ensure, to the best of our ability and resources, that no child is an outsider. The staff work to educate the children to fulfill their intellectual, creative, social, physical and emotional potential. As well as all the other academic subjects (Maths, Gaeilge English, Geography, History, Science, Social Personal & Health Education, Drama, PE and Music) we teach the ‘Learn Together’ Ethical Education curriculum which studies and discusses different religions, beliefs and non-belief systems, values, and ethical and environmental issues.
