Learn Together to Live Together.

Monkstown Educate Together National School strives to create a happy, safe, inclusive and nurturing environment where the uniqueness of each child is celebrated. We aim to provide a space where children are educated and where all members of the school community can grow, develop and achieve their full potential. We aspire to excellence in an atmosphere of respect, openness and joy.



METNS is a child-centred learning community, where the uniqueness of each child is celebrated. Each child’s abilities, needs, pace of learning and individuality are recognised and respected. Each child is encouraged and supported to develop their signature strengths and to achieve their full potential.


We uphold, respect and accept equality of beliefs, whether religious or non-religious, and we celebrate cultural diversity of children, parents/guardians, staff and members of the wider community. We are inclusive, and through promoting an appreciation of diversity, we strive to ensure that no child or family is an outsider and that children ‘learn together to live together’.


At METNS, we work towards maximising the potential for building a genuine partnership between the professional, objective role of the teacher and the necessarily personal involvement of the parent/ guardian in their child’s education.  Our school community emphasises individual and collective responsibility for the children’s education, for the financial and practical support of the school, for discipline, for communication and for the on-going development of the school.


We aim to provide a balanced environment, which does not favour one gender over the other or promote gender stereotypes.  We are also committed to fostering respect, understanding and friendship between girls and boys.


Our Guide to Ethos

In Monkstown Educate Together National School, our characteristic spirit or ethos permeates every interaction, influences our decision making, and guides our plans and policies.  We hope that this guide will help you to deepen your understanding of this system, and to join us in shaping our pupils’ learning experience now and in the future.
