The vision for primary education as outlined in the Primary School Curriculum (1999) is to nurture the child in all dimensions of his/her life: spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.

The curriculum incorporates the child centred principles of Curaclam na  Bunscoile (1971) but also includes new content and embraces new approaches and methodologies. It is learner-centred.

It emphasises the importance of literacy, numeracy, and language, while at the same time responding to changing needs in science and technology, social personal and health education, and citizenship.
