Everyone associated with Castlelyons National School is proud of its record when it comes to being inclusive and welcoming. 

Following sanction by the Department of Education & Science, Castlelyons NS will soon have 3 modern spacious rooms – one mainstream room and 2 rooms to accommodate pupils with special needs.

The special needs children currently in the school benefit from a caring and stimulating environment.

As part of the development, there will be a designated sensory area which is proven to be very benefical as well as wheelchair accessible toilets.
