Dear Parents / Guardians,
Our school will partially reopen next Monday 1st March for Junior Infants to 2nd Class. This email is to inform you of any procedures that you need to be aware of in advance of Monday.
While there is undoubtedly a long road ahead with Covid19, we hope that the worst of this pandemic is behind us and that there will be no further school closures this year or in the years to come. In particular we hope that as vaccines are rolled out it will be safe for us all to meet again. In the meantime, should you have any questions, suggestions or queries in relation to the reopening of the school, please feel free to contact the school and we will try to assist you.
Looking forward to seeing our Juniors to 2nd on Monday and hopefully our 3rd to 6th in a few weeks time.
David O'Brien (Principal)
New Supplementary Programme for children with complex special needs
The In-person Supplementary Programme to Support the Education and/or Care Needs of Pupils with Complex Needs scheme is a temporary measure during this period of school closure, in February 2021. The four-week programme (20 hours) can commence from 11 February and can be used by families at any time up until the end of April.
These hours supplement existing school provision provided remotely, therefore they cannot be delivered during the school day. They can however be delivered outside of the normal school day and/or at weekends if necessary.
As this will be a supplementary programme, it is voluntary for teachers and SNAs to participate.
Similar to the department’s home based summer programme, parents will engage tutors/SNAs directly in a private arrangement.
Eligibility for the programme will comprise:
The school will contact parents of eligible pupils in the next week to discuss the programme and ascertain levels of interest. Alternatively, parents can contact the school directly having read the details of the programme.
