Partnership with parents is central to the ethos of a 1,220 pupil Co Dublin second-level school, according to a recent Whole School Evaluation (WSE) report.

Inspectors commented on the strong sense of community at Malahide Community School, Co Dublin

The evaluation, conducted last May, include a surveyed of parents, who, according to the report, indicated very strongly that they felt welcome there.

The report describes the overall quality of school leadership as very good, with very effective support structures in place to provide for students' wellbeing, learning and individual educational needs.

The quality of teaching and learning in the majority of lessons was "good or very good", while there was scope for improvement in a minority, inspectors reported.
