Welcome to St. Joseph's C.B.S. Primary School (SN Naomh Seosamh) or just Joey's as it has been fondly known by generations of Dubliners. We are a small (125 pupil) boys school located in Marino, Dublin. We have classes from 2nd through to 6th (ages approx. 7 to 12) and three Outreach classes which cater for children with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder). We are committed to providing a happy, secure environment in which all our children can develop to their full potential.
Inspired by the Five Key Elements of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust Charter our schools are responding to a changing world and supporting the leaders of the future to work in partnership, to care for the environment, to equally look after themselves and others and to be inspirational and responsible citizens.
The Five Key Elements of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust Charter are:
- Nurturing faith, Christian spirituality and Gospel-based values;
- Promoting partnership;
- Excelling in teaching and learning;
- Creating a caring school community;
- Inspiring transformational leadership.
Our schools promote equality of access and participation - in other words, children of any faith, or none, at every level of ability, of any nationality or ethnic grouping are all welcome in our schools. All of our schools are encouraged to recognise the uniqueness of each individual in caring communities where holistic development is nurtured.

The school provides a wide range of subjects, activities, sports and supports to help our students learn and thrive. We have a strong tradition in providing After school or extra curricular activities. The dedicated and experienced staff in our school provide these activities on a voluntary basis. We operate a subsidised school book rental scheme and all our students are provided with a free, delicious and healthy school meal. We recognise the value of, and actively work towards, excellent home-school communication and have a dedicated Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) teacher to help achieve this. We also participate in the School Completion Programme to ensure that our pupils get the best possible start in their education.
