Inch National School is recognised by the Department of Education and Science and therefore implements the revised 1999 Primary School Curriculum. The staff of Inch National School has developed a school policy for each subject. Each policy is based on the aims and objectives of the primary school curriculum and addresses the importance of continuity of subject material from one class to the next. Each policy incorporates a wide range of teaching methodologies and allows for differentiation within the classroom.

The primary school curriculum is comprised of the following subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • English
  • Gaeilge
  • Drama
  • Visual Arts
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Social, Physical and Health Education
  • Geography
  • History
  • Science

Religious instruction is an integral part of the school’s catholic ethos and is taught in all classrooms.
