Drop off and pickups
Drop off is from 9am sharp. Before this time our playground is unsupervised and children are not to enter the area.
Classes commence each day at 9.10a.m. and end at 1.50p.m. for Junior and Senior Infants and at 2.50p.m for classes 1 to 6.
Please do not allow your child to climb the school wall or the fence.
The school must be notified on the Aladdin app if there are any changes to the collection arrangements for your child e.g. a different person collecting your child for an appointment during school hours or after school, other than a parent/guardian. We will not allow children to be collected by a person unknown to us without prior notification from parent/guardian. (Child Protection Policy)
We encourage our pupils to cycle and walk to school where possible. Please take care when driving in the vicinity of our school.
The drop off area is along the footpath or at the community centre. Please drop and leave the area as quickly as possible as when cars linger it causes congestion.
Do not park, even for a short period, in the teacher's parking area or the bus drop off area.
Our uniform consists of the school tracksuit and polo shirt & appropriate sports shoes. These can be purchased in Fennessy’s in William Street, Limerick.
Please make sure all belongings are marked with your child's name.
In the summer months, plain navy shorts may be worn with the blue polo shirt each day.
We do not allow branded sports wear.
At the start of the new academic year, it is necessary that parents provide us with up-to-date information regarding any potentially serious allergy or your child may have, which necessitates the use of regular medication. Please contact the school or the class teacher to discuss this so that appropriate procedures may be put in place. Parents must sign an “Administration of Medication” form at the start of the school year, with details of any changes in their child’s medication, inhalers etc. This form is available from the school office. Make sure your child’s inhaler/medication is in date before sending it to the school.
Attendance at School
It is very important that your child attends school regularly. All absences above 20 days must be reported to TESS (Tusla Educational Support Services). It is not necessary to phone the office, please use the Aladdin app to inform us if your child is going to be absent, arrive late or have to leave early.
In so far as it is possible, dental and medical appointments should be arranged for out of school hours. It is school policy that children arriving late or leaving early should be signed in/out by a parent or guardian. Notice for these events should be given on the Aladdin app.
We understand the stresses and strains of modern life and do our best to keep costs to a minimum.
Our school does not charge a ‘Voluntary Contribution‘ and any money paid goes directly back to your child for activities and resources used by your child.
We have a very good Book Rental System running in our school for the last number of years. This greatly reduces the costs to parents.
Our Parents Association are a fantastic support to us and contribute to outings, classes and by subsidising the cost of the busses, keeping costs down for parents.
That withstanding, some families may still find the costs associated with school too much to bear. Please make a call to the office to arrange to speak with our Principal, Mrs McGuinness, if you find yourself in this situation.
Please be assured that all information will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
