Wexford Educate Together Secondary School sign now

 

 

Educate Together is the patron body of the rapidly growing network of schools in Ireland that are run according to the Educate Together Charter. It is an independent NGO that runs schools that guarantee equality of access and esteem to children "irrespective of their social, cultural or religious background", are learner centred in their approach to education and are run as participatory democracies, with respectful partnership between parents, pupils and teachers.

The schools operated by the member associations of Educate Together are fully recognised by the Irish Department of Education and Skills and work under the same regulations and funding structures as other national schools. However, they have a distinct ethos or governing spirit. This has been defined in the following terms:

Multi-denominational i.e. all children having equal rights of access to the school, and children of all social, cultural and religious backgrounds being equally respected. Co-educational and committed to encouraging all children to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities. Boys and girls learn and socialize together in the school environment. This approach delivers the best educational and social development for children. Child-centred in their approach to education. Educate Together schools are committed to active learning techniques that encourage children to interact with their peers and teachers while they learn. Educate together schools are focused on helping each individual child reach its full academic and social potential. Democratically run with active participation by parents in the daily life of the school, whilst positively affirming the professional role of the teachers.

 

 

A New Model of Second-level SchoolThe first Educate Together second-level schools will open in Dublin in September 2014.

 

Educate Together second-level schools will provide a caring and supportive school community that nurtures each student’s personal, social and academic potential throughout their school career.
Our approach at second-level moves away from 'teaching to the test' and towards an emphasis on the learner. Students develop skills in creative and critical thinking, communication, teamwork, research and leadership. 
Teachers in an Educate Together second-level school use the best teaching and learning methods to make students’ learning active, relevant, challenging and enjoyable. 
Our ethos provides a strong moral, ethical and spiritual framework for the whole school community, and informs all policies and practices in the daily life of the school. Students follow an ethical curriculum, which includes learning about different religions and belief systems.
