Attendance
Good attendance is paramount to success in school and we would urge parents to make every effort to ensure that children have high attendance rates. The old fashioned hand-written Roll Book is now long gone; school attendance systems are now computerised, enabling us to keep very detailed records regarding whole-school, class and individual attendance patterns.
In addition to stating if a child is 'present' or'absent', teachers are now required to also state if the child arrives late, leaves early or is absent for a part of the day. As good attendance is so important, any concerns will be raised with parents at an early stage.
Please note: the school cannot give permission for children to be taken out of school for family holidays.

Home-School Communication.

It is important that we keep our parents/guardians up to date and informed of their child's learning experiences and progress.  We communicate with our parents, guardians and extended school community in a variety of ways.  

 

We use social media (with permission) such as Facebook and Twitter to showcase our children's achievements and experiences in school.  We also use a text messaging service to contact parents and guardians of any upcoming events.  School newsletters are sent home termly and are accessible on our website. Teachers also send a curriculum learning overview to parents for each new topic covered. We also use the home-school diary to write home.  Our school secretary works in the school part time, and we make every effort possible to reach the telephone when she is not in the school building. 

 

We conduct parents meetings twice a year, and at any other time by request.  Each child receives an end of year school report in June.

 

Mr O'Kane teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday. He is available before 8:50am and after 3pm on those days. He is available at all times on Wednesday and Thursday.   

 

We are a busy school so please check your child's school bag and home-school diary each night for any letters or notes.

 

Please ensure your contact numbers and address is correct with our secretary Tina.

Health Promoting School.

 

An important part of our practice is the promotion of healthy eating and to this end, we ask children to have a piece of fruit for their mid-morning snack. We would appreciate your support in this, so that together we can encourage children to eat healthily throughout the day.  Our Primary 7 children run a very popular 'tutti-fruiti' fruit shop each morning where a variety of fresh fruit can be bought in school. (Grapes are cut in half to avoid a choking hazard).

 

We encourage the children to drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated and to be best prepared for learning. 

 

Our canteen follows all healthy eating policies and the menus available are both wide and varied, offering the healthiest of choices.  Our canteen menu is sent home and is available on the school website.  School dinners cost £2.55 each.  If you think your child is entitled to free school meals please contact the Education Authority on tel: 028 82 411411 or click on the following link:

Pastoral Care and Child Protection.

We are very proud of our Pastoral Care provision here at St. Peter's & St. Paul's PS, and this was recognised as a major strength in our most recent inspection report. We want each child to feel safe and secure; we want to influence their opinions, values and attitudes in a positive manner and we want to create an environment that is characterised by healthy relationships and mutual respect. 

 

However, we also need to have systems in place should there be any cause for concern, and each year we send out our Parents' Information Leaflet detailing our approaches to such concerns. This information is also available on our website.
