Vision Statement

Charleville National School is a Church of Ireland, co-educational school which strives to provide a happy and secure environment where the self-esteem of each child will be enhanced. The educational, spiritual, moral and cultural needs of each child will be identified and developed with compassion, enthusiasm and due regard for the child’s individuality.

In Charleville we aim to provide a caring learning environment, which facilitates the nurturing of each pupil’s full educational potential, while promoting excellence in teaching and learning through careful planning, communication with parents and through our daily academic routines in accordance with the Department of Education Primary School Curriculum (1999). Teachers and parents are partners in the children’s education, with co-operation and communication between home and school being vital ingredients in the educational process.

We aim to enable our pupils to have fulfilled lives as children, to equip them to avail themselves of further education, to prepare them to live full and useful lives as adults in society facing life confidently and respectfully in an ever-changing world.
