Latnamard National School


Our school is a community where pupils, parents and teachers collaborate and work in partnership for the children. When parents decide to send their children to our school, they are entering a relationship that has a shared sense of purpose and mutual respect. In keeping with the principles of education, our school is democratically run by a Board of Management where the involvement of parents is sought and encouraged both at Board and Parent Association level. Respect for professional role of the teacher and the statutory responsibilities of the Principal, Patron and the Board of Management are always an important consideration. Parents are invited to become involved in the school in many ways and at many levels:

  • Serving on school bodies – Board of Management & Parents’ Association
  • Attending Parent-Teacher Meetings
  • Fundraising.
  • Parents are kept informed of school activities through the school Newsletter and are invited to attend school sporting and cultural activities


Benefits of Parental Involvement

Parental involvement actively supports and encourages the child‘s learning.

It promotes good parent/teacher relationships and a better level of understanding between home and school.

It enhances communication, trust and respect between parents and teachers.

Parental involvement allows children to see that school is an extension of home and therefore fosters the idea of the ―school family.

Parental involvement provides the opportunity of making lifelong friends.
