Dear Parents,


We are delighted to welcome all children back to school during the week commencing 24th August 2020.

We will be following the Northern Ireland Re-Opening Schools Guidance “New School Day” which was issued to all schools late last week. I understand that this may have been a frustrating wait for you as many of you have child minding and work plans to implement. I thank you for your patience.


In accordance with the guidance we have separated entrance and exit points, designated assembly points for children and staggered arrival and pick up times. Please make note of your child/children’s start date, entrance and collection point.


Teachers will meet children as they arrive at their designated time and we would ask parents to remain outside of the school grounds with the exception of Primary 1 for the first week.


Schools have been asked to discourage children from bringing anything from home into school therefore to that end the children should only bring their break/lunch in a disposable bag and a suitable coat for outdoors.


In line with DENI directives there will be no school dinners provided until 1st September 2020.We will be operating a cashless system, details of which will be sent to you later in the week.


Further information:

  • Regular and thorough attention to hygiene will be practised throughout the school day
  • Children should wash their hands thoroughly before coming to school and again upon entering the building
  • Each class will be viewed as a protective bubble and there will be staggered times for meals and play
  • We will endeavour to practise social distancing as far as is practical where physical capacity and curriculum delivery permit


All of these measures will be kept under review and may be subject to change.


Please be assured that we will make every effort to make your child/children’s return to school as safe and supportive as we can.


Kind Regards,

Mrs Mc Cullagh
