St. Louis Senior Primary school is co-educational in which we strive to provide a well ordered, caring, happy and secure environment where learning opportunities abound. Our school fosters a welcoming, positive and inclusive climate where values of self worth, equality and understanding are cherished and promoted. We endeavour to enhance the self esteem of all within our school, imbuing in our pupils respect for themselves and others and developing in them the concept of civic responsibility.
Our school provides Religious Education in accordance with the practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, but we are respectful of and cherish other Religious beliefs within our school. We welcome pupils of all faith, including those of none.
We promote an appreciation and love of Irish culture and language while also forging a knowledge of and respect for other cultures within our school. Our school motto is “Growing and Learning Together” and this is our mission as we prepare our pupils for lifelong learning and further education.
It’s that time of year again…..
Standardised Testing in English and Maths is taking place at present in all classes in St. Louis SPS. End-of-year assessments will also be taking place in other Curricular areas across the school. We very much value the data we collect from these tests as they help us as a school to prepare lessons for the students that meet their specific needs. Do remember, however, that these tests are just a sample of the evidence collected regarding your child’s learning, ability and progress. Teachers use different methods of gathering evidence about how and what our students learn on an ongoing basis. Standardised and end-of-year testing are just a small sample of this evidence. This information, along with other teacher observations and assessments, is used to celebrate students’ current learning, and to help make decisions about next steps for future learning.

Here in St. Louis we place a strong emphasis on the holistic development of each child as a valued individual. We celebrate the academic, artistic, musical, technological, sporting, social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth of our students. We are immensely proud of all of our students and their achievements through their time with us.
