Google Classroom – All children P1-P6 have been issued with Google Classroom Login details.  Please login using these details.  Please do not use personal email accounts as these will be removed.


Attendance and arrival at School – Parents will be contacted at the end of October if their child’s attendance falls below 85%.  We are aware that there are many factors contributing to being absent from school at present, therefore it is very important that the school is informed if a child is absent and the reasoning behind it so that it may be coded correctly.  Children arriving after the 9:00 a.m. bell in the morning must access the school through the main office as school has already started, this is to ensure minimal disruption to the other children, they must also be recorded as late on the system.


Developmental Language Disorder – Developmental Language Disorder Day is on Friday 14th October.  On average 2 students in every class of 30 pupils will have development Language Disorder.  Please check out the information provided on Google Classroom relating to Development Language Disorder.
