Scoil Ghráinne Community National School is a co-educational Primary School which is under the patronage of Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Educational Training Board. The school aims to promote the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the child: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual. Scoil Ghráinne seeks to provide a high standard of education where each child is encouraged to reach his/her personal potential. The school is committed to a spirit of inclusion, equality and harmony where each child and member of the school community is valued and treated with respect.
Scoil Ghráinne caters for children of all faiths and none. It is the policy of Scoil Ghráinne to respect, celebrate and recognise diversity in all areas of human life. Children attending Scoil Ghráinne will be taught and encouraged to view diversity as something which reflects the community from which the children are drawn. The school will endeavour to encourage the children committed to its care to have a pride in what makes them different and a belief that difference, when respected and valued, gives strength and vibrancy to the total school community and the wider community in which they live. As part of its ethos, Scoil Ghráinne welcomes children from all faiths and none. In common with the other Community National Schools under E.T.B. patronage, Scoil Ghráinne will recognise the wishes of parents to have their children receive religious education, or morality based education as an integral part of the school curriculum.
Scoil Ghráinne opened in September 2008 with Junior Infant classes. Scoil Ghráinne now has a three stream intake from Junior Infants to Sixth Class as well as two classes in our ASD unit, Croí. The school is located in Phibblestown (adjacent to Hansfield Road) and shares a site with the post-primary school for the area, Coláiste Pobail Setanta, which also opened in September 2008.
