Education in County Kildare



This section will focus on issues relating to Primary Education.

General Aims of Primary Education

The curriculum identifies three primary aims of primary education:

  • to enable the child to live a full life as a child and to realise his or her potential as a unique individual
  • to enable the child to develop as a social being through living and co-operating with others and so contribute to the good of society
  • to prepare the child for further education and lifelong learning.


The Primary School Curriculum aims to enable children to meet, with self-confidence and assurance, the demands of life, both now and in the future
