Greystones Community National School opened in September 2015 and as a Community National School, is part of a relatively new model of primary school established to answer the changing needs of Irish society. Greystones CNS is a multi-belief school which welcomes pupils of all faiths and none. The school is committed to a spirit of inclusion, equality and partnership in education. Greystones Community National Schools is under the patronage of Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board.

Greystones CNS endeavours at all times to provide a happy, pleasant school atmosphere for the pupils where there is co-operation between parents, teachers and children. It is our mission that all three parties will work together to establish this positive school atmosphere. In a spirit of partnership in education, all parties seek to work cooperatively to develop a school which we are all proud of.

Greystones CNS is committed to the highest standards in teaching and learning and to achieve this senior leadership work in a collaborative and supportive manner to ensure teachers perform to the best of their abilities through teacher support and in class visits.

At all times the child is central to the educational process. Every effort is made, with the co-operation of parents, to help each child to reach his/her full potential. We believe that co-operation, courtesy and good manners are essential for an effective school and for the educational development of our pupils.

We firmly believe that parental involvement is key to ensuring the best outcomes for children and maintain an open door policy for parents. We aim to make parents feel completely welcome and valued at Greystones CNS.
