School Ethos

Harold’s Cross Primary School is a Catholic School under the patronage of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. The school aims to promote the full and harmonious development of all aspects of its pupils i.e. their intellectual, physical, cultural, moral, social linguistic and spiritual attributes.

“The school provides education for pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church and promotes the formation of pupils in the Catholic Faith” [Catholic Primary School Manager’s Association Handbook].

In line with the school’s ethos, Harold’s Cross National School respects the diversity of cultures, traditions and languages, that co-exist in Irish society today and we welcome and value the contributions of those whose traditions differ from our own.
