School Ethos

“Boyle Parochial School is committed to nurturing the potential of each child through academic, physical, moral, emotional, cultural, spiritual and aesthetic experiences within the school. The emerging youth will be encouraged to become confident, responsible, tolerant, life long learners and self motivated”

Boyle Parochial School is a co-educational, primary school, under Church of Ireland management, with the Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh, the Right Reverend Ferran Glenfield, as Patron.

As such the school values and respects all children, regardless of social background, religious denomination, gender, educational achievement or physical characteristics. Its adult population, be they staff, parents or visitors are met with similar inclusivity and equality.

It is a community comprising pupils, parents, staff and Board of Management where Christian values, such as honesty, justice, respect and care responsibilities are nurtured.

The traditions and teaching of the Church of Ireland inform the position taken in regard to moral issues which arise in the teaching of secular subjects within the school. Participation in all aspects of school life is encouraged, including attendance at Boyle Parish Church on special occasions.

The school’s Board of Management adheres to the Department of Education and Skills Guidelines and the Departments’ revised curriculum is followed.

Just as the Primary School Curriculum celebrates the uniqueness of the child, so too does Boyle Parochial School.
