Supporting your child in Lanesborough Primary School
As a parent you play a key role in your child's education. This is a role that the Board of Management and staff of Lanesborough Primary school truly value and aim to encourage from your very first visit to our school when you seek to enroll your son or daughter. The partnership we develop between home and school and involvement of our parent body in school life is second to none. The NCCA has developed a number of resources to help you to support your child's learning in primary school. Many of these are available in various languages. Take a look at the resources for your child's class on their website
