Citywest & Saggart

Community National School


Citywest & Saggart Community National School is a co-educational school that started off with Junior Infants in September 2012. It is a vertical school and it will eventually grow up to 6th class.

It provides a child-centred education through which the holistic development of the child is paramount. In parallel with the educationally sound principles of our national curriculum, Citywest & Saggart CNS delivers the ‘Goodness Me! Goodness You!’ Religious Education programme.

This programme is unique to Community National Schools. It is a multi-belief programme that caters for children of all beliefs and none. It is story-based and encourages each child to reflect on their own experiences of the world.

Citywest & Saggart Community National School aims to place itself at the heart of the local community. Inclusivity and celebration of diversity will be at the core of the school’s ethos. Recognising and acknowledging our similarities and celebrating our uniqueness meaningfully, paves the way for a thriving learning community. It is our hope that children and parents of all ethnic and religious backgrounds will feel equally valued and respected.Citywest & Saggart CNS prides itself on using the latest teaching methodologies, innovative pedagogical practices and a child centred approach to teaching. Please see our gallery here for examples of the active, hands on and meaningful learning that the children engage in.
