General Information

General Information about the school

School Day
School begins at 8.50 a.m. every morning and ends at 2.30 p.m. each evening. The infant day
finishes however at 1.30p.m. In order to help the children settle in and become accustomed to a
longer day, the new junior infants finish earlier for the first two weeks or so in September.

Lunch
We have a short lunch break at 10.30a.m.and the main lunch-break at 12.15 p.m. We have a
healthy lunch policy in the school. We strongly recommend that children are given some fruit /
vegetables for the first break and sandwiches and /or yoghurt for the next break. We do not allow
crisps, carbonated drinks, chewing gum or sweets in school.
It is important that your child can manage his / her lunch without the teacher’s help (i.e. able to
peel an orange if this is being given for lunch). Don’t forget that s/he is one of a group of thirty
pupils and it would be impossible for the teacher to open bottles, fruit etc. for all.
On safety grounds, glass bottles should not be brought to school.

School Books
The booklists for this school-year can be downloaded from the website. These books can be
bought from various sources. You will see that our booklists are very short as we have a book
rental scheme in the school. It is very important however, that your child has all his / her books
at the beginning of the school-year in September. Also, as we endeavour to maintain the standard
of our books and purchase more books we would be grateful of you could pay this portion of the
booklist early in September.

School Uniform
The children in infants wear the school track suit and white polo shirt. The tracksuit can be
purchased in Pat O’Farrell Schoolwear Swords .Children from first class wear the full uniform of
bottle-green jumper/cardigan, grey trousers or skirt, cream shirt and tie. This uniform is also
available from Pat O’Farrell Schoolwear Swords.
It is important that younger children can manage the opening and closing of coats and shoes by
the time they come to school as it is impossible for the teacher to tie laces etc. for the class.
Shoes with velcro straps are ideal. Please label all coats jumpers hats scarves with your child’s
name.

Mornings
Parking spaces are extremely scarce! Please drop your child and drive on. There are special
needs assistants and a teacher in the yard each day from 8.35am.

Collection From School
The class teacher should always be made aware of any arrangements you have made for the
collection of your child from school, especially if this is a change of routine.
Communication
Good communication between school and home is critical to your child’s education. We will let
you know of any concerns we have so we can address these together. Likewise, it is very
important that you let us know if your child is having difficulties at home.
We regularly send notes home to you with important information or announcements. It is
important to check your child’s bag daily as children often forget to deliver these. It is a good
idea to clean out the bag from time to time also as half-eaten lunches and other such interesting
items can lurk at the bottom of the bag!

Gaeilge
This is a Gaelscoil and we expect parents to respect the ethos of the school. We expect parents to
try to use any few words they have. Also, if you need to have a conversation with the teacher in
English we ask you to make an appointment. This preserves the language of the school.

Absences/Punctuality
It is important to be punctual for school at all times as children who arrive late disrupt the
attentive atmosphere already established.
If your child is ever absent, please send a note explaining the reason for the absence to the
teacher when he/she returns to school. This is a legal requirement under the Educational Welfare
Act. Your child's school diary has notes that can be filled in and sent in for this purpose.

Illness or Accidents
It is our policy to send any child who is unwell home as soon as possible. Should your child have
any kind of serious accident in school, you will be informed immediately. If it is necessary to
take your child to the doctor/hospital, and if we are unable to contact you, the principal or
another teacher will do so. Parents will be responsible for any medical bills.
