We believe that the parent-school-pupil partnership is essential throughout the child’s education. Working together in unison will develop and nuture trust and co-operation between parents/guardians and teachers. This in turn promotes the holistic development of the child. It is very important for us here in Scoil Bhríde to develop a strong sense of community amongst our pupils, parents and families.
Parents are recognized in Irish law as the primary educator of their child. We are here to assist parents in supporting their child’s academic, social and emotional development. To help parents become more aware of the curriculum we teach their child every day and the education system in which we do it, we have set up this resource page. Please find below some useful link buttons and a list of websites for parents of school going children. We endeavour to keep adding to this page. If you have any further suggestions on what we could add to help parents, please let us know.
