Half-day closure on February 14th
Publication of Child Safeguarding Statement and Risk Assessment
The school will close at the earlier time of 12pm on Wednesday, February 14th. This is also the day that the mid-term break begins. We will reopen again on Monday, February 19th.
This half day closure, in accordance with Circular 0081/17, is to facilitate staff training in the new Child Protection procedures which came into law on December 11th, 2017.
The Board of Management has recently ratified a new Child Safeguarding Statement (policy) for the school. This is available to view and download on our blog. The staff and Board of Management have also conducted a “Child Safeguarding Risk Assessment”. This too is available to view at the same link. Both of these important documents will be reviewed annually by the Board in the first term of each year.
The full Child Protection Procedures for Primary & Post Primary document may be viewed on the Department’s website at this link.
