Welcome from the Principalide-tynan-head-shot


As Principal of St. Ultans National School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website.  We thank you for taking the time to visit.  We hope to provide you with some useful information.  This website showcases  the many learning  experiences which  children enjoy at our school  and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work.

If you have viewed the general welcome page, you will be aware that St.Ultan’s Primary School is part of a wider innovative, integrated Education and Care service for the community of Cherry Orchard called Saint Ultans.

Our partnership with our parents and families, along with all our colleagues in the Nursery, Early Ed., Care Unit and the wider community of Cherry Orchard is of primary importance to us as we endeavour to provide opportunities, learning experiences and supports that will enable every child reach his/her full potential.
In St. Ultan’s Primary School we afford the children enriched learning experiences through creative, progressive and innovative approaches in implementing the Primary Curriculum. We use evidence based programmes, many of which are internationally acclaimed and robustly evaluated – including The Incredible Years (Webster-Stratton), Restorative Practices, Peer Mediation, Mindfulness (.b and Paws.b), Reading Recovery, Maths Recovery, Wizards of Words, Doodle Den, Rainbows, Parents Plus and Strengthening Families.
Our school is a happy and safe place where every child matters.  We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and return regularly to check out our latest news.
Le gach dea-ghuí (with every good wish)
Íde Tynan
