    At Malahide/Portmarnock Educate Together N.S., we follow the national Primary School Curriculum as laid down by the Department of Education and Skills. We provide a stimulating and challenging educational environment, where the emphasis in every area of the curriculum is on discovery, analysis, expression, and in ensuring that each of our pupils reaches his or her full potential.  Subjects which, at Primary level are frequently integrated, are: Literacy (English and Irish); Numeracy; Arts Education (Art, Music, Drama); Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (S.E.S.E.); Physical Education (P.E.); and Social, Personal and Health Education (S.P.H.E.) including the Stay Safe Programme.

    As we are a school under Educate Together patronage, we follow the Learn Together Programme which you can read more about on our Ethos page.
