Pupils are supervised and covered by school insurance only during official school hours and for after-school activities that have been sanctioned by the Board of Management. The Board of Management cannot accept responsibility for children who arrive before the official opening time or who remain on the school premises after the official closing time.
Parents are asked to ensure that their children arrive in the school yard in time for the bell at 9.00 a.m. Children are not permitted to enter the school building before 9 a.m. except on wet mornings (see the information on Wet Day Assembly below). Children are not permitted to go to their classroom unless accompanied by their teacher.
An explanation should be provide for a child’s late arrival. Any child who comes to school after 9.10 a.m. is considered late.
Please collect your child on time.
On wet mornings, children are allowed into the school from 8.50 a.m. However, parents are asked not to come into the school as this causes congestion and overcrowding.
Parents/Guardians who wish to leave a message with a child during the school day are asked to leave it at the secretary’s office so as not to interrupt a class. The secretary and the principal spend a lot of time conveying messages and making phone calls for parents and children because children forgot to give notes from the school to parents. While we are happy to oblige in an emergency, we do not want to spend undue amounts of time answering the phone or making phone calls as this takes us away from the work we do that ensures the smooth running of the school.
Children can forget what they need for the day. Please help your child to pack his/her school bag and prepare lunch the previous night in order to avoid this.
Parents are asked to give their mobile and work phone numbers and the phone number of another person who can be contacted in an emergency. Please keep school secretary informed of any changes to your address or contact numbers.
A written note or message on Aladdin Connect is required from a parent/guardian to explain the following:
– A child’s absence from school.
– A child’s late arrival to school for any reason, e.g. dental appointment.
– If a child has to leave school early for any reason.
A note should be left for the class teacher or secretary at least one day before your child will be arriving late for school, be leaving early or be out of school for any reason.
If a child is to leave school early parents/guardians must collect their child at the secretary’s office where their child must be signed out.
Children must remain on the school premises until dismissal time. Children may not leave the school except with the written request of their parents/guardians and permission of the principal.
Please collect your child on time.
Please wait in the yard for your child to be brought out by their teacher.
Please keep doorways clear.
When you have collected your child, please keep them with you. Children are not allowed to climb on gates/railings, run up and down steps or play in garden/pebbled areas while parents chat
For safety reasons, every child must leave the classroom at dismissal time. Children must not return to their classroom for any reason after their class has been dismissed.
Children should wait for their siblings and friends in the yard. They should not go to different lobbies to meet siblings. We make these requests all for reasons of safety.

The pursuit of excellence is at the heart of St. Brigid’s but in saying that, our school is about so much more than academic achievement. It’s about companionship, inclusion, friendship, minding each other, balance in life, music and singing, sport, art, debate, leadership, a sound work ethic, commitment and endeavour.
