Dublin 13 Educate Together primary school campaign


The Department of Education may open a new primary school in Dublin 13 in the coming years. We will update you with further developments when available.

What you can do

  • Please share the link with friends and family that may be eligible to vote.
  • If you have any time to spare, you could volunteer to help the campaign – just get in touch.

Why choose Educate Together?

There are a lot of reasons to choose Educate Together: at primary level Educate Together has forty years experience of providing an education based on human rights and that welcomes all children regardless of religious, social or cultural background. Educate Together has established a tradition of democracy, inclusion and equality that benefits pupils, parents and teachers alike. It’s no wonder that Educate Together schools are in huge demand nationwide.

What happens next?

The Department of Education will invite applications for the patronage of a brand new primary school. Educate Together will apply for patronage of this school. Following this, the Department will open its dedicated Online Patronage Process System website for parents and carers residing in the designated catchment area of Dublin 13. If you’re a parent or carer of a pre-school child and living in this area, you can vote for your patron of choice. The DE will collate the results and award patronage according to parental preference. It’s that simple!
