Sandymount Park Educate Together Secondary School opened to first year students on August 27th 2018 in Dublin 4. We are committed to the vision of education outlined in the Blueprint for Educate Together Second-Level Schools and seek to build a team of creative and passionate educators who share our vision.
We use iPads and O365 to support and enhance learning. Teachers adopt a blended approach to technology and integrate the use of iPads, Teams and OneNote to provide learning experiences which are broad, balanced, challenging and responsive to individual needs.
Students’ written work in copybooks and laboratory reports was very good and greatly supported with teacher feedback and students’ use of a well-designed copybook checklist. In using the checklist, students have clear criteria that they can apply to their own assignments. Science Subject Inspection 2019
In Sandymount Park ETSS co and extra-curricular activities form an important part of school life, helping to build relationships and enhance learning and wellbeing. Teachers work closely to continually advance the quality of learning and teaching – this involves co teaching and an ‘open door’ culture of observation and ideas exchange.
‘Through the teacher’s proficient use of shared learning intentions, combined with tasks that involved students in co-creating success criteria, students were highly involved in their learning and in reflecting on their individual progress. Science Subject Inspection 2019
