As Education and Training Boards (ETBs) expand the growth of Community National Schools (CNSs) across the country, other primary schools have become more aware of the model and are interested in exploring it. These publications aims to support these schools by:
- Describing the core values characteristic spirit of a CNS
- Describing the supports available to CNSs from ETBs
- Guiding schools on how to approach the process of exploring becoming a CNS with their school community
- Providing an overview of the policies and practices that would be in place once the school becomes a CNS.
