School Updates

We are looking forward to welcoming all classes from Junior Infants to 5th back on Monday the 15th of March.

Please see the letter below for more details.

Dear Families,

Welcome to Scoil Aoife and thank you for visiting our website. We are a Community National School located in Citywest, Dublin 24.

As with Community National Schools our ethos is based on the core values of equality, inclusion, diversity, and respect. All cultures, beliefs, languages, and traditions are celebrated as central to our core values.

Our vision is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in Scoil Aoife, where children and staff can explore and develop their full potential. We are a learning community and although we strive for the highest quality of teaching and learning, we acknowledge the importance of fostering the holistic development of the individual child. As a DEIS Band 1 school, whose rationale is predicated on equality of opportunity, we strive to make the learning process accessible to all.

Scoil Aoife Community National School is a state, co-educational, multi-denominational school under the patronage of Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB). It opened its doors in its present location in 2016 and has grown ever since to become an innovative and vibrant learning community.  Our school caters for all children from infants to 6th class and welcomes children with Autism to our Special classes in the Magic Garden.

“As principal, it gives me great pleasure to welcome every child, parent, and the wider community to Scoil Aoife. We are very lucky to have a highly dedicated, hardworking, and enthusiastic staff in our school as well as an active and encouraging wider school community”

In living our school’s vision and values, the staff employs active, innovative, and inclusive practices to ensure all children have equal opportunities to succeed. It is the policy and practice of Community National Schools to recognise and to celebrate the uniqueness of the child but also to instil a deep sense of belonging, of empathy, and of respect and tolerance of others.

My wish for every child in our school is that they grow into active citizens in society and that they see themselves as active participants in their learning journey which will enable them to experience productive and fulfilled lives. I also hope that they will have developed lasting friendships and happy of memories of their time here.
