CPSMA and CSP Consultation on Promoting Greater Inclusiveness in Primary Schools
28th November 2013 | News
This is a joint submission on behalf of the Catholic Primary School Management Association and the Catholic Schools Partnership. These two bodies work closely with all of the stakeholders in Catholic primary schools in Ireland to create a child-centred environment where the gifts of all children can be nurtured. In this submission we analyse some of the fundamental principles which underpin Catholic primary schools in the Republic of Ireland especially with regard to the education of children of other faiths and those whose parents profess no faith. We believe that the recommendations of the Report of the Forum on Patronage and Pluralism in the Primary Sector need to be read in the context of these fundamental principles. Otherwise these recommendations could seriously undermine denominational schools.
