The Board of Management
“It is the responsibility of a school's Board of Management to draft their school's Admissions Policy and to ensure it is implemented correctly. The Board of Management should also ensure that it is regularly updated taking into account any legislative changes or Department of Education and Skills guidelines. The Edmund Rice Schools Trust, as Patron, has a role in agreeing to the publication of its schools' Admissions Policies pursuant to Section 15(2)(d) of the Education Act 1998.” ERST
The Role of the Board
The Board of Management manages the school on behalf of the patron (ERST) and is accountable to the patron and the Minister. The Board must uphold the characteristic spirit (ethos) of the school and is accountable to the patron for so doing. The principal is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school, including providing guidance and direction to the teachers and other staff of the school and is accountable to the Board for that management.
