Contact Details

The school is updating all their contact information. Please complete your child's contact details form and send it back in to your child's class teacher as soon as possible.  Every family MUST complete one of the newly issued forms.

 

Read, Read, Read!

It is so important that children develop the love of reading, no app can replace the lap! We would ask you to encourage your children to read as much as possible at home as this is proven to make a huge difference in their academic ability. 

Homework is an important part of your child's learning journey and it's vital that you as parents connect with their learning, do you get involved in your child's homework activities? 

 

Social Distancing

As recommended by the Public Health Agency we would like to remind all parents to respect social distancing when dropping of and collecting their children from the school grounds.

Many thanks

Seesaw Family App

The school is launching a new app called Seesaw. Seesaw is an app which gives you real-time glimpses into your child's school day. It gives you an opportunity to support your child's learning at home, see your child's work, and celebrate progress. An instruction sheet along with a QR code has been sent home with your child and a video has been uploaded to our Facebook page on how to create an account. We would encourage ALL parents to make use of this app.  If anyone has any problems getting connected please contact the school.
