Entering the school:
As our school grounds are now clear of snow, school returns to normal this week. However, please note that in the interest of Health & Safety pupils from Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First class will continue to enter the school through the front door. All other classes should enter via the gate at the tower. Both the front door and the gate will be open from 8:50am to 9am. After 9am pupils should enter school by reception.
As per Child Protection Guidelines for all school the Robertstown N.S. Board of Management and staff have completed a Risk Assessment and the Child Safeguarding Statement has been approved by the Board of Management. School staff have considered all activities in the school and the potential risk of harm to children. A number of relevant policies to Child Protection were reviewed by staff. Please see attached our revised policy for Arrivals and Dismissal of Pupils. Please note any changes to procedures.
