Welcome to Scoil Chlíodhna CNS. Our aim is to prepare kind, caring, socially conscious, critically-thinking, independent young citizens of the future. We do this by implementing the National Curriculum as set out by the Department of Education, all the while being mindful of the unique ethos of the Community National School – an inclusive, multidenominational school that strives for equality and excellence in education.

Inclusivity underpins everything we do in Scoil Chlíodhna with each child, parent and family being valued equally. As a multi-denominational school we seek to nurture the beliefs of children of all faiths and none, and work closely with parents and community faith leaders. We recognise the role of parents as equal partners in the process of education and frequently draw on the talents and skills of our parent body to supplement the teacher’s work. These elements, combined with a determination to help each child achieve their potential, not just academically but as a person, are what makes Scoil Chlíodhna what it is!
