The 2013 ideas competition for primary school design was proposed as an opportunity for the Department of Education and Skills to explore with architects and educationalists the development of innovative architectural designs that respond to the emerging 21st century needs of primary school learners and teachers.

The brief outlined key principals to follow for promoting less formal spaces for allowing education beyond classrooms as well as being a place that is physically, psychologically and socially safe, promoting the child’s growth, health, learning and well-being as well as their positive interaction with teachers and fellow pupils.
