Policies

Policies

All Gaelscoil na Móna’s policies are developed according to current Department of Education (DENI) regulations and guidelines. The policies are regularly reviewed according to DENI regulations, good practice and the changing needs of our school. An important part of the development process is parental input, ensuring that the care and success of our children is always central. To have your voice heard in the development of Gaelscoil na Móna’s policies and procedures, return any questionnaires sent home with your child, attend parent/teacher meetings, attend annual curriculum meetings and become involved in school life by taking part in the Parent Council, or by volunteering in school.
