Opening Hours

School Hours

School starts at 9.25am and finishes at 3.05pm.

For safety reasons, the children travelling by bus are dismissed first followed by all other children once the bus has departed. Parents collecting children by car use the numerous spaces provided and must not obstruct the bus or double-park.

Children in the infant classroom are dismissed at 2.05 each day. In the interests of safety, parents are asked to collect these younger children in person at the school gate.

Teachers should be notified in writing if a child is going home with someone other than their normal guardian.

Absences / Punctuality

All children should be in school before the bell sounds at 9.25am. Children coming into class after this time must have a note to explain their late arrival. Children leaving the school grounds during the day must have a written explanation and be collected from the classroom.

Similarly, all absences must be explained by an absence slip from the Homework Diary which will be kept on file in the office. The school is required to notify the National Education Welfare Board where a child misses 20 days or more in a school year.
