COVID-19

Hi everyone,

This section of the website is for your reference during the school closure due to COVID-19. The current school closure is up until March 29th. There is a contingency plan in place should the closure be extended – this will be communicated to you. All families have been emailed work that is sufficient for your child to complete during this current closure. If you need to seek clarification regarding any of the work assigned, if you have any queries about it or if you wish to send completed work to your child’s class teacher, you can do so through the specially-assigned email addresses. (Please note that these emails addresses will only be monitored during school hours).

The work provided for your child via email is specific to their class level. Should you require any additional suggestions or further activities, the list below provides some guidelines for this.

The work assigned, as well as the below suggestions are intended to be in no way overwhelming, but to assist you with providing structure and some sort of normality for your child and family during these difficult times. Health and wellbeing of our pupils and families is our main concern, and have no doubt that your child will catch up academically and will receive all the necessary support when schools re-open. For now, enjoy spending time with each other and valuing the basic and really important things in life – that’s what will really matter when all of this passes.

The following link provides useful support for you and your mental health during this time:

Please continue to looks after yourselves and your families. While the school building is closed, the staff continue to be available to support you and your child should you need... Please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Best wishes,

Caitríona
