Tramore Educate Together National School is a co-educational, multi-denominational, child-centred and democratically run primary school. The school operates under the Department of Education, follows the National Primary School Curriculum and is subject to the same level of inspection from the State Inspectorate as all other Primary Schools in the country. Our patron body is Educate Together. We teach the ‘Learn Together’ ethical education programme which studies and discusses different religions, beliefs and non-belief systems, values, and ethical and environmental issues.

Learn Together Curriculum
Educate Together schools teach the Learn Together Ethical Education Curriculum, rather than the religious instruction programmes taught in denominational schools. This curriculum has four strands:
- Moral and Spiritual: children learn about feelings and values, the development of conscience, choices and consequences, stillness and meditation.
- Equality and Justice: children learn about wants and needs, rights and responsibilities; the promotion of equality and the nature of democracy locally (Student Councils are encouraged), nationally and globally.
- Belief Systems: children learn about the rites and ceremonies, celebrations, key figure and beliefs and values of the six main world religions: Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism and Sikhism. Schools also address Atheism, Agnosticism and Humanism.
- Ethics and the Environment: children learn about appreciation and stewardship of the natural world. Educate Together schools have an ethos of respect, diversity & inclusion.
