Welcome to Belclare NS.
SN an Croí Ró Naofa (Belclare National School) is a co-educational Catholic primary school under the patronage of the Archbishop of Tuam. It strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure environment where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.
Good behaviour in a school is based on good relations between parents/guardians, child and school. In SN an Croí Ró Naofa (Belclare), we hope to foster this ideal in co-operation with our parents/guardians and Pupils. We have adopted a positive code of behaviour with emphasis on encouragement and reward so that good behaviour and a positive atmosphere can prevail in our school.
