Our school is co-educational, under the patronage of the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin.
The school has a Catholic ethos but welcomes children of all faiths and none.
Vision of Clonegal NS
It is our vision that we will educate the children in our care in accordance with the Catholic ethos of our school, while acknowledging and respecting other cultures and religious groupings. We aim to provide a caring, secure, happy and well ordered environment where everyone in the school community will feel protected, valued and accepted. We will endeavour to enhance the confidence and self-esteem of each person in our school. We promote team spirit and co-operation between all parties in education. An atmosphere of respect and care for all is fostered and a high standard of behaviour and inter personal relationships is expected.
