Partnership Schools Ireland

Working together for Children in Primary Schools

Partnership Schools Ireland (PSI) is a joint initiative by the National Parents Council Primary (NPC) and the Irish Primary Principals Network (IPPN).

The main objective of a “Partnership School” is to achieve better outcomes for children. This is achieved by the whole school community planning and working in partnership on agreed ideas and activities.

With this in mind, we have set up an “Action Team for Partnership” (ATP), which consists of the Principal, pupils, staff members, parents and members of our community.

Following 2 training sessions provided by the NPC, the team has met and put together a One Year Action Plan for Partnership and set out a number of goals for the school.  These consist of 2 Academic, 1 Behavioural and 1 Partnership goal.  The team will meet regularly to coordinate and review these.  We also hope to involve various community groups throughout the year.

On Friday November 15th St. Colman’s hosted an information morning in the school hall. This was an opportunity for people to meet and share their ideas and learn about Partnership Schools.
