Ballyneale National School has the welfare of the student in all matters as its primary objective. The aim of the school is to provide a safe, secure, structured and stimulating educational environment where each student feels valued and cherished.
Thus the responsibility of the school is to help each student reach his/her fullest potential. This means fostering the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social and cultural development of each student.
Ballyneale National School is co-educational. While Ballyneale NS is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also gives due recognition to all other religions.
The school will strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.
The school will encourage the involvement of parents/guardians in their children’s education through home/school contacts and through their involvement in the Parent’s Association.
The School will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community and to imbue in the students respect and appreciation for people and property.
A sense of responsibility will be fostered in each child.
We will promote gender equity amongst the teacher and pupils.
