Wel­come to Mus­lim Pri­mary Edu­ca­tion Board website


The Board has been set up by the Patron body of the Mus­lim schools in Ire­land to act on its behalf
as the man­age­ment body for the exist­ing Mus­lim national schools estab­lished under the Depart­ment
of Edu­ca­tion and Sci­ence. Our aim is to define and advise on the Islamic Per­spec­tive on edu­ca­tional
issues relat­ing to the teach­ing of reli­gion and other sub­jects in Mus­lim and other schools attended
by Mus­lim chil­dren. We rep­re­sent, as required, the man­age­ment inter­ests of the exist­ing Mus­lim
schools in any rel­e­vant discussions/correspondence with the Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion and Science.

The role of the Mus­lim Pri­mary Edu­ca­tion Board is to man­age and develop Mus­lim pupils’ edu­ca­tion
through ded­i­ca­tion and excel­lence through uphold­ing Islamic val­ues.  Its prin­ci­pal aims are to advise
and empower the edu­ca­tors and par­ents within the com­mu­nity thus pro­vid­ing a stim­u­lat­ing learn­ing
envi­ron­ment cul­ti­vated within an Islamic ethos where stu­dents will flour­ish and develop, ulti­mately
allow­ing them to achieve their fullest poten­tial and become suc­cess­ful role mod­els worth emu­lat­ing
enabling them to con­tribute and par­tic­i­pate effec­tively within Irish society.
