Important Safety Notice

In the Interest of Safety for each and every child, we the Staff of Scoil Chéile Chríost Rathmore N.S. wish to draw your attention to the following:

Pupils travelling by car will enter the school playground via the garden entrance and line up in their relevant lines in the yard no earlier than 8.45am and no later than 9.00am in the mornings.  Bus pupils will use the same entrance procedure to the yard.  Supervision will be provided by the Principal/staff from 8.45am to 9.00am.  Garden gate will be closed at 9.00am and children are to enter through the front door if late.

All children collected by car are asked to remain at the front plaza of the school until they are collected by parent/guardian. Parents/guardians are asked to walk up and collect their child. 

Children are not allowed to walk down to the Car Park / Rathmore Community Hall on their own for collection.

If this is unsuccessful, children will be held in the PE hall until the parent/guardian collect them from the front PE hall door.  We will monitor improvements and revert to the hall if necessary.

We would also ask that children are supervised in the car park at collection times until they are safely in your car, as cars/buses are driving /reversing etc and visibility can sometimes be poor due to weather conditions. We would also ask that children do not walk through the flower beds but use the footpaths provided, that they do not run across the roundabout, and that they do not swing/climb on the flag poles, gates or bollards.

If any parent/guardian is late for collection in the evenings, children should wait inside the front porch and inform their teacher or Principal when they are leaving.  Where possible, parent/guardian should inform the school if they are delayed.

Our aim is to provide for the Health & Safety of your child/children in the evenings and we are asking for you co-operation in this matter.

Thank you
Robbie Jameson
