Section 1 Introduction and Overview of LMETB

Louth and Meath Education and Training Board (LMETB) is the largest comprehensive educational
provider in the Louth and Meath region with a range of educational services from primary to post
primary and further education and training.

1.1 LMETB Schools, Colleges and Centres of Further Education and Training

LMETB manages three Community National Schools, sixteen post primary schools, one with PLC
provision, a Centre for European Schooling and two Post Leaving Certificate colleges. LMETB is also
joint patron of six Community Schools located in counties Louth and Meath.

Each LMETB school and college has proven itself as a centre of excellence in teaching, learning and
assessment in its local community. LMETB schools provide a welcoming atmosphere for students, staff,
parents and the local communities in which they operate. The LMETB school/college experience is one
where a warm relationship exists between teachers and learners and the atmosphere in lessons is positive
and conducive to learning. A broad and balanced curriculum with a diverse range of co-curricular and
extra-curricular activities where the aptitudes of students are central to its design is available in LMETB
schools. Each of these schools has built a very positive reputation in the local communities in which
they operate and each school continues to enjoy strong parental support and a high level of satisfaction
with the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. LMETB looks forward to replicating this
excellence and innovation in education in Ashbourne CNS.

At Further Education and Training level, LMETB manages nine Youthreach Centres, a Regional Skills
and Training Centre and an extensive range of Adult Education Services throughout counties Louth and
Meath, including Adult Learning Services, Community Education, Back to Education Initiatives (BTEI),
VTOS and Adult Guidance. Details of all LMETB schools and centres are included on our website
www.lmetb.ie and in Appendix 1 of this submission.

LMETB was established under the Education and Training Boards Act 2013. The Act, which took
effect from 1st July 2013, provided for the dissolution of thirty three Vocational Education Committees
and the establishment of sixteen Education and Training Boards (ETBs) through a process of
aggregating existing VECs. LMETB was formed due to the aggregation of Louth VEC and Meath
VEC.

The Further Education and Training Act 2013 which was signed into law in July 2013 established
SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority with responsibility for planning, funding and
co-ordination of the Further Education and Training Services provided by ETBs. This Act also
provided for the transfer of the former FAS training functions and staff to the newly formed ETBs.
On 1st July 2014, the former FAS training centre in LMETB therefore came under the governance of
LMETB.

LMETB is a progressive, dynamic organisation which responds to the needs of a growing
population. Demographic changes and population growth in counties Louth and Meath has
contributed to this very exciting and challenging period for LMETB. Increased enrolments and the
commencement of four new post primary schools in Ashbourne, Drogheda, Dundalk and Navan over

                                                                                                              3
the last five years coupled with an extensive number of building extension projects to LMETB
schools and colleges in both counties reflect these changes. In September 2018, LMETB also opened
a new Community National School in Faughart, Co. Louth and in September 2019, LMETB will
open a new Community National School in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath.

students, visitors to the school and respect for property.
Students at Ashbourne CNS will have a school uniform which will give students a sense of belonging to a
particular school and create an identity for the new school in the community. Once appointed the
Principal of Ashbourne CNS will consult with Parents/Guardians on the school uniform.

cleaning staff will be on hand to support school management throughout each academic year.

LMETB is governed by a Board comprising twenty one members. The ETB board is collectively
responsible for promoting the success of the ETB by directing and controlling the ETB’s activities.

In order to deliver good governance in the ETB, the Board must act in the interest of the ETB at all
times, consistent with the requirements of legislation and government policies. The LMETB Board is
required to confirm to the Minister for Education and Skills that they comply with the up to date
requirements of the Code of Practice in their governance practices and procedures. Board members at
