St. John's National School, The Neale, strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure learning environment, where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of our pupils are identified and addressed.
While The Neale National School is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also gives due recognition to children of all other religious beliefs and none.
We aim to provide an appropriate, stimulating and broadly challenging education for all of our pupils. We aim to encourage language learning and the appreciation of languages and their place in our culture and heritage.
The Neale National School encourages the involvement of parents through home-school contact and through their involvement in the development and growth of the Parents’ Association.
At The Neale National School we endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for themselves, for other people and for property and to encourage the development of personal responsibility. We aim to prepare our pupils for their place in a modern multicultural society by actively promoting equality and by celebrating the diversity we have within our school community.
We strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.
The Neale National School encourages our pupils to have respect for diversity, environmental awareness and appreciation of our community.
