Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the centre of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help them be the best they can be.

Dear Parents/Guardians, I hope this email finds you and your family keeping well and that you are enjoying the summer break and the lovely weather we are having this weekend. I understand you may have questions and concerns regarding your children's return to school at the end of August. Following receipt of the Department of Education's Road Map for the safe return to school of our pupils and staff, the Board of Management recently met to discuss the document. The Board and Staff are now busy working hard on drafting a COVID 19 Response Plan to ensure we can all return to school safely. The plan, among other things, necessitates making some changes this year to include specific entrance/exit gates for specific classes, restrictions on parents and visitors entering the school, the mandatory wearing of face coverings for staff and split yard times. I will be in contact with you again next week when the plan is finalised to make you aware of new procedures and protocols that will be put in place for the coming school year. As I am sure you will appreciate all decisions made by the Board will be based on best practice to ensure the health and safety of all in the school community. Kind regards, Máire Costello
