Staff training Re: Child Protection

School close 12.30pm : Wednesday 14th Feb

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                                                              7/2/2018

I would like to inform you of the implementation of the 2017 Children first National guidelines/ 2017 DES Child Protection Guidelines. All schools have some new measures to put in place and are directed to close for two half days this school year. Schools are not currently permitted to combine half days.

Our school (along with Mercy Primary) will close for half day (12.30pm next Wednesday 14th February) to facilitate staff training. The other half day will be planned for term 3. We ask families to make arrangements for collection and childcare on that day.

Many Thanks for your cooperation,

Niall Crofton
