Attendance and Punctuality


The children are expected to be punctual and to attend school everyday. We ask that you are on time picking up your child daily. Infant teachers have other duties to perform and small children’s trust is shattered if they are continually left to wait when every other child has been collected.

Good school attendance is crucial to your child’s progress. If your child is absent for any reason, please send an explanatory note to the teacher on her return. If at all possible, appointments for your child (dentist, doctor etc.) should be arranged outside of school time. The school has a statutory obligation to report all absences of 20 days or over to Tusla. Roll call is normally taken at 9.50a.m. and any children not in school by then will be marked absent.

Parents are required to sign their child out for appointments and to sign them in if they are late.
