Mission Statement and Ethos

Mission Statement and Ethos

St Finian’s Community College is a modern, co-educational, multi-denominational school founded by Co Dublin Vocational Educational Committee (VEC) in 1956. A Board of Management, under the patronage of DDLETB -Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board, manages the school. Parents/Guardians and teaching staff also have representation on The Board of Management.

St Finian’s Community College is a wholly inclusive school. We, with the partners in education, are committed to being a caring, learning community where each person is valued and accorded respect and dignity. The staff aims to deliver a broad diverse curriculum in a calm, disciplined and safe environment in an atmosphere where all will be encouraged to become confident responsible persons striving to reach their full potential

We are committed to providing the highest standard of education, which is suited to all the needs of our students. We acknowledge the value of ongoing whole-school development in collaboration with the ETB, the Board of Management, Staff, Parents and the community.

Key Principles

  • Inclusiveness – we promote social inclusion
  • Equality – we promote equality with respect to maximum access to education
  • Parental Choice– we respect parental choice in relation to enrolment in the context of the criteria laid down by the Board of Management
  • Respect for diversity – we welcome diversity and seek to embrace the values, cultures and traditions of all our students to the benefit of all. We seek to promote the uniqueness of the individual.

These principles inform our core values which are: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Inclusion.
