Our school promotes the holistic development of each child. We encourage children to reach their true potential through a broad and balanced curriculum. We aspire our pupils to develop opinions, views and beliefs in a safe, inclusive learning environment.
Bracken Educate Together is a primary school in Balbriggan, Co. Dublin. We operate under the Educate Together ethos. The whole school community – Board of Management, Parents, Children, Teachers and other staff are together working towards an Ireland in which all children have access to an excellent education that is inclusive of all, irrespective of belief system, race, ethnicity, class, culture, gender, language, lifestyle and ability.

- Co-educational and committed to encouraging all children to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities
