Board of Management News
• The Board of Management would like to remind parents again not to park in the yellow box outside the school when dropping off and collecting children and not to reverse or turn your car outside the front of the school. Parents are encouraged to park in the church car park to ensure the safety of all our school community.

• The Board of Management have carried out its Annual Review of our schools Anti-Bullying Policy and have ratified a new child Safeguarding Statement and Risk Assessment. These documents will be available on our school website in the coming days.

1. If they are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19.
2. If another family member has tested positive for Covid-19 or is awaiting the results of a PCR test.
3. Please find a link below to the HPSC latest isolation quick guide for parents:
