Westport Educate Together is a new primary school in Westport, Co. Mayo. We opened in 2019 with our first Junior Infants Class.
We are currently located in temporary accommodation at Sharkey Hill Community Centre, Páirc na Coille, Westport, Co. Mayo, F28CD82.
As an Educate Together School, we are equality based, child-centred, democratically run and co-educational.
Like any many other schools in Ireland, Educate Together schools are state-funded and teach the National Curriculum. They are non-fee-paying schools and are open to students of all backgrounds. They are co-educational and have no school uniforms. But they are much more than that: Educate Together schools work hard to instil a sense of equality and justice in students. They embrace the input of parents, students, staff and the wider community to improve the school in every way possible. They are committed to enabling students to achieve their full potential. All students are encouraged to explore their full range of abilities and are provided with equal opportunities regardless of their identity. Educate Together schools put students at the heart of all policies and practices. All children have equal access to school and no one religion or worldview is given priority over another in Educate Together schools.
