Staff

The staff currently consists of over 30 hard-working and dedicated professionals under the leadership of Principal Niall Crofton.
There are currently eight mainstream classes in the school from Junior Infants to sixth class. In September 2014 we were delighted to open a class catering for pupils with Mild General Learning Difficulties (MGLD). Then in September 2015 we opened a new ASD class ( Cairdeas ). In September 2019 we opened a 2nd ASD class to meet a critical local need in South Offaly. This class CAIRDEAS 2 was constructed on a temporary basis by volunteers from our community led by BOM member Mr Adrian Sheils. The school have submitted plans to DES to construct a purpose-built ASD unit in the near future. There are a number of learning support and resource teachers in the school who form the SEN team. The staff, at present, comprises of 17 full-time teachers.

The school and its pupils also have the support of 8 Special Needs Assistants, a secretary, caretaker and two cleaners.

The school also has the services of a Home School Community Liaison Teacher shared with the Mercy Primary School.There is also a School Completion Programme in operation in the school. These are valuable supports along with school lunch scheme which are part of the DEIS school programme.
