Information

School Uniform

Children are expected to wear the full school uniform daily.

In 2022 we modernised our school uniform. Children now wear grey trousers / skirt / pinafore, a grey polo t-shirt, grey sock / tights with a red coloured jumper with the school crest.

On P.E. days, grey tracksuit bottoms with runners should be worn.

Sweetnams in Carrickmacross supply our school uniform.

School Hours

School starts at 9.30 a.m. It finishes at 2.00 p.m. for infants, and 3.00 p.m. for all other classes. Teachers are obliged to be on the premises by 9.15 a.m. Any unsupervised children on the premises before 9.15 a.m. or after 3.00 p.m. are not the responsibility of the school.

Break time is from 11.00 a.m. to 11.15 a.m. and lunch time is from 12.30 p.m. to 1.00 p.m. Healthy lunches are encouraged; please refer to our Healthy Eating Policy.

Regular attendance at school is very important. The school is obliged to notify the Welfare Board if a child misses more than twenty days of school.

School Books

A Book Rental Scheme is available in the school. Rental books are supplied at an allocated fee each year. Our Book Rental Policy is available to view on our website.

Homework

Homework is given to consolidate work done in school, and to encourage parental involvement in your child’s education. No homework is provided at the weekends or on school holidays.
