Health and Safety
The health and safety of all the children is a primary concern to us.
(a) Safety Statement
The school has a full safety statement drawn up by the safety officer
in co-operation with the Board of Management, Staff and Parents. This is available for inspection in the Principal's office. Fire drills are
carried out on a regular basis.
(b) Safety at the School date
- At home time the children are brought to the gate by the teacher.
- A Traffic Warden is on duty and we ask that you co-operate with him/her.
There is NO PARKING in the school grounds nor can the entrance be used to turn cars.
Please observe the spaces allocated for the parking of minibuses and the various road markings outside the gate.
- If your child is to benefit from the educational programme please ensure that she gets proper sleep and eats proper meals.
- If your child is ill or has been ill through the night do not send her to school. Please consult the separate Medical Information Sheet for further details.
In the event of absence from school due to illness please send a note to the class teacher.
All absences must be accounted for in writing. Should you need your child to leave school early please send a note to the class teacher. Children must be collected from the classroom when leaving early, they are not allowed to go alone to the school gate. If your child is likely to be absent for a prolonged period please notify the school as soon as possible.
In accordance with the Education Welfare Act schools are legally obliged to report all absences of 20 days (even where there are written notes from parents). It is school policy to notify parents in writing when a child's absence has reached 15 days.
