Aims and Ethos
St. Brigid’s is a Catholic primary school and its ethos and philosophies are based on a belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The policies, practises and attitudes of the school are inspired by Gospel values. Religious education is provided for the children and prayer is a feature of the school day. The pupils are prepared for the reception of the sacraments of Penance, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
