Coláiste Lorcáin Castledermot


Coláiste Lorcáin has been involved in the current phase of school planning for many years. The purpose of School Planning is to help the school in its understanding of its role as an education provider to all the community. It is also intended to coordinate future planning to ensure the school continues to grow and meet the challenges presented in a rapidly changing environment.

There have been a number of areas addressed as priority aims under the planning initiative. Promoting an anti-bullying agenda, improving communications, catering for diversity of students entering senior cycle and examining student needs are but some of the taks that have been approached by the staff. Subject planning, including collaborative planning within subject areas was initiated more recently and has given the school much greater scope in terms of providing for mixed ability teaching, setting term exams, using resources across the subject areas, etc.

The Board of Management and the Principal work assiduously to ensure that school policies and procedures are regularly considered and reviewed and that best practice and modern approaches are in action in daily school life.

The school's policies are available from this website and, also, on request from the Principal.

All our policies are subject to regular review and consultation. Please ensure to check for updates.

Guidelines for all students

As part of its work, the Department of Education and Skills' Inspectorate carries out inspections in schools. In recent years, the focus of those inspections has been on the quality of teaching and learning. As well as affirming good practice, these reports sometimes makes recommendations for the school - leadership and / or teachers - to implement as a means of improving the learner experiences and outcomes. The recent DES Inspection Reports on our school can be downloaded below:
