Information

Kilrane National School caters for 270 pupils; both girls and boys from junior infants to sixth class.

The staff of the school strives towards the all-round total development of our pupils and this includes the social, academic, moral, spiritual, psychological and emotional elements of the primary school curriculum.

The school caters for the children living in the greater Kilrane area and generally has an intake of between 20 to 40 junior infants every year.  The classes at the junior end of our school are kept as small as possible as we believe in the importance of an educationally rich early start where active and enthusiastic learners can be taught as much as possible in their first few formative years at school.

We have a proud tradition of providing excellent care and education for children with special needs.  The school employs two full time learning support teachers and two full time resource teachers who are all committed to the children in their care.

As a central part of our education for all ethoses, the school has an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) class which caters for children with specific education needs.  This class has had exceptional results in helping children access the primary school curriculum and preparing them for secondary school.
