A new Primary Language Curriculum is being implemented across primary schools in Ireland
The curriculum is changing so that it is up-to-date with the times we live in, with developments in language learning and the introduction of the Free Pre-school Years.
Since the last curriculum (1999), society and communities have changed greatly, as has your child’s learning environment. Thanks to research, we now know more about how children learn to speak, read and write and how to help them make progress in ways that are well suited to their learning needs.
Our teaching staff attended a full day of training about the new Primary Language Curriculum in February 2017. The new curriculum will be phased in from September 2017.
