Notices for week beginning 7th Jan 2019

5th Jan 2019

Happy New Year to everyone I hope 2019 is a happy and healthy year for you and all your families. 

The new year brings new starts and please remember all new P1 and Nursery children must apply online for enrolment next year. A short video which shows you how to complete the form is available on

The applicationfrom is available on

To help with this new online application process we will be operating a drop in centre every Friday in the school from 9.00-12.00 and 3.00 -5.00 please spread the word everyone welcome.

I will be sending for all P7 parents in the next few weeks to discuss and choose post primary schools for your child.

As we begin a new year could I ask all parents to ensure every child is at school by 8.55 at the latest as teachers collect their classes then to begin work at 9.00 - please remember supervision and breakfast clubs start at 8.15. All children must be in full uniform every day. Could I also ask that if you pay for canteen dinners these must be paid for in advance either on the day or on the Monday as a few days not paid for can mean money owned can mount up very quickly.

If you are having any difficulties please contact myself or Mrs Concannon at any time.
