Twins & Siblings Practice in Powerstown ETNS

Please note that it is our practice to place twins (& siblings) in separate classes, for the following reasons:

  • This practice is based on our experience as school staff and the experience of parents and twin (sibling) children who have passed through the school.
  • Placing twins (sbilings) in separate classes best supports children as unique individuals and it benefits the children in terms of their emotional, personal and social development and is consistent with our ethos of child-centredness.
  • Engaging with different teachers and classmates and developing individual circles of friends is an enriching experience for both the children and the parents.
  • We have always found that as children grow older, it becomes even more important to recognise and nurture a sense of self and also to enable children to have separate experiences throughout the school day.
  • Our teachers work closely together at each class level so that plans, homework, activities, trips are very similar in both classes.


Please refer to Admission Policy and our Admission Notice
