Welcome to Sandymount Park Educate Together School’s website. We hope to give you an insight into life in our school and what it means to be part of our community. Our vision is to become a school of teaching and learning excellence where students will flourish; enabled to reach their full potential whilst becoming confident, considerate, active members of society.
Daily interactions are guided by our core values of kindness, respect, empathy, hard work, participation, curiosity, creativity, democracy and community. We strive to create an environment where positive, constructive relationships between students and teachers nurture high quality learning and teaching in the classroom. Rich co- and extra-curricular engagements provide students with opportunities to reach their potential socially, creatively and ethically.
The student is at the centre of all that we do, with a focus on providing them with opportunities to develop their identities as individuals and as learners and to build strong bonds with others and the wider world. Students are encouraged to actively participate in all aspects of school life, fostering connectedness to the school environment, curriculum, policies and culture. We have the highest of expectations for students, they will be challenged and supported to continually advance their learning and development.
Essential to our vision is the importance and power of the student voice. Students feel involved and accepted for who they are and gain confidence from the fact that their opinions are sought and valued. Activating student voice has the power to enhance motivation, engagement, learning and wellbeing.
We invite you to explore our site and find out more about our vibrant and innovative school.
