New Primary Mathematics Curriculum - Information for Parents

The aim of the new Primary Mathematics Curriculum is that children see maths as important and useful to their everyday lives.
It is essential that parents/guardians are made aware of the changes to the curriculum that have taken place to date and what will be happening over the years to come. In this regard the Department of Education, in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) and the Professional Development for Teachers (PDST), has developed a leaflet which is designed to introduce these changes and encourage parent/guardians to engage in the future consultations seeking feedback on the draft curriculum areas and subjects of the new curriculum.

The leaflet is presented in many languages. Please select one to read information about the new Primary Mathematics Curriculum.

The NCCA, NCSE and PDST have developed a leaflet which introduces parents to the changes in the new curriculum and encourages parents/guardians to engage in the future consultations seeking feedback on the draft curriculum areas and subjects of the new curriculum.

Amber Flag Award

We are delighted to announce that St. Comán's Wood have been awarded their very first Amber Flag from Pieta House. This award is presented to schools who make a conscious effort to promote and improve the well-being and mental health of their school community. St. Comán's Wood began the process at the beginning of the academic year and began by setting up an Amber Flag committee made up of a selection of students from each class. Together with leading teachers, Ms McNeill and Mr Morelli, the committee worked hard throughout the year to make positive changes and to co-ordinate events to promote positive mental health and well-being in our students, teachers and parents. Congratulations to the committee and the whole school community on this fantastic achievement. Our Amber Flag was raised by special guest, Mrs Morris, on both sites on Wednesday, June 22nd. Have a look at some of the photos from the day on St. Comán's Wood Twitter page here.
