School Books/Stationery

We hope all in our school community are safe and well. We are fast approaching the pupil return to school dates and preparations are continuing at the school for the safe return of pupils and staff.

We have been identifying ways of reducing what pupils have to bring to and from school. We request that on your child(ren)s first day back they bring all their school books and stationery (pen/pencil/rubber/ruler/colours etc) in their school bag. The Class Teacher will collect all these and they will all be left in school. After the first day pupils will no longer need to bring school bags.

 We will not be giving pupils homework straight away on their return. It will be very important to support pupils at return time as they re-establish school routine, connect again with staff and classmates and familiarise themselves with new practices and systems at school. Pupils and their families will have had very varied different experiences during their time out of school. We need to be mindful of this.

 We will be exploring ways of providing homework which does not entail books/copies going from school to home and vice versa. We will inform you of this when a final decision has been made.

We thank you again for your continued support and cooperation. We appreciate that the Return to School may be challenging for you also as you prepare to re-engage with a much changed Scoil Bhride N.S.

Thanking you,

Mr Fennell (Deputy Principal)
