My Department’s Inspectorate carried out a Whole-School Evaluation in Scoil Eoin Báiste National School, Castletown, Dundalk, Co. Louth in October 2017 and this report was published on my Department’s website www.education.ie in January 2018.

The report identified a number of recommendations for the school where improvement is required.

Responsibility for implementing recommendations in an inspection report rest, in the first instance, with the management and patron of a school. As Section 15 of the Education makes clear, it is the duty of the board of a school to manage the school on behalf of the school’s patron and for the benefit of the students and their parents.
