Board of Management

The Education Act 1998 describes the role of the Board of Management as managing the school on behalf of the patron and for the benefit of the students and their parents and to provide or cause to be provided an appropriate education for each student at the school for which that board has responsibility. The Board of Management meets approximately twice a term throughout the school year and deals with matters including review and approval of policies, appeals regarding refusal to enrol and other matters, disciplinary hearings and teaching and learning matters. The Principal and Deputy Principals report to the Board regarding attendance and punctuality updates, suspensions, referrals to social services, admissions process, student attainment and school activities.
