In line with our pastoral care policies, permission to leave school before the regular times can only be given at the written request of parents. At

such times children must be collected by an adult. Corridor and playground supervision starts at 8.45 a.m. Pupils, therefore, should not be in

school before this time.

 

At the end of school pupils walking home should use using the crossing patrol points outside school and on the Main Street. Pupils should cross

only at these points. Parents who bring their children to school by car must be careful not to park in a way that will obstruct school buses or the

fire station entrance. For safety reasons, parents are asked not to bring their cars into the school grounds unless special permission is obtained.

 

As part of our Eco school/ Health Education policy we encourage parents to use the carpark in Crumlin Glen and walk the short distance to

school.  The school has extensive hard and grass play areas which are fully used during break and lunch-times and during after school activities.

We have separate P1-3 and P4-7 playgrounds laid out with brightly coloured permanent games markings and a team of Primary 6 and 7 playground

leaders set up small games equipment daily for lunch-time play.

 

As an Eco-School our extensive grass areas are being developed for outdoor environmental work, with several bird areas, a habitat pile (mini-

beasts) a tree conservation area, outdoor classroom, log circle and a patio area with raised beds for growing fruit and vegetables.
