Community National Schools

Community National Schools (CNSs) are state, co-educational, multi-denominational primary schools underpinned by five core values: Excellence in Education, Care, Equality, Community and Respect. CNSs are under the patronage of the local Education and Training Boards (ETBs). CNSs give equal opportunities to all children. In the communities they serve and strive to provide high quality education through respectful, positive, supportive and responsive learning environments.

Carrigaline Community Special School

Our school is a place where everyone feels a sense of belonging and ownership. Respectful and positive relationships which are ever mindful of the dignity of each individual person is the bedrock of our school community. We are also committed to ensuring a safe environment where our students can maximise their own potential. Forging meaningful relationships with the students, their parent(s)/guardian(s) and all involved in their care and education, is essential to ensure high quality educational experience for our learners.
