Ethos

 

St Laurence O'Toole's National School is a Catholic school under the patronage of the Dublin Diocese.  Our school is caring and inclusive and is rooted in local parish community where it forms a central part of everyday life.  Parents, teachers and the parish of Roundwood work together in providing a child-centered education which includes preparation for the sacraments.  In St Laurence O'Toole's we are committed to  the promotion of respect for diversity and children from all faith and no faith backgrounds are welcomed and respected.  As a school, we strive to develop the whole person.

The school supports the principles of:

  • Inclusiveness, particularly with reference to the enrolment of children with a disability or other special need.

  • Equality of access, and participation in the school.

  • Parental choice, in relation to enrolment

  • Respect, for diversity of values, beliefs, traditions, language and way of life in society.
