Opinions wanted on educate together carrickpherish

    I’m considering sending the young fella to the educate together school. I can’t find reviews or info online, and I don’t know anyone who sends their kids there. I’d love to get some honest, recent opinions on the place from parents.

    My son is in 1st class there, and has been there since Jnr Infants.
    We are delighted with the school there, the teachers are brilliant as is the ethos of the school. My son started there with a speech delay and they provided him with extra resource classes and he has since caught up to his peers. I found them very helpful and open with us.

    There's also a very active Parents Association if that's something that you'd be interested in.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions, and I can try get you any information if I don't know it already :)

    My son is in Educate Together and I honestly couldn't be happier with the school, the are fantastic to work with and very proactive. Also in 1st class like the previous poster, genuinely couldn't be happier with them, my daughter is in a different school and couldn't say the same - the difference is stark!

    My fella is now in fifth class in Educate Together and it's a lovely school. My three older girls went to local catholic schools and like another poster said, the difference is something else.

    I just prefer their overall ethos and my son actually enjoys going to school, unlike my older girls experience. I just find the atmosphere more..inclusive..if that's the right word. Less 'cliques' in the classroom and the like. He struggles with his maths somewhat and the help they've given has been tremendous.

    I couldn't recommend it enough. Beautiful new building too! Shame there's no ET secondary school, but sure hopefully that'll come in time.
