A strong partnership exists between school and home, which is vital for good learning outcomes. We have an open-communication policy to parents in Scoil Naomh Colmcille and we value parental input. We have a Welcome Day for the parents of incoming Junior Infants in May/June.

Sick Children

Do not send your child to school if he/ she is sick as they will not be allowed to stay in during break periods due to supervision regulations.


Parking is available in the church carpark.

You may park on the opposite side of the road to the school.

Please do not park in the way of the bus or staff car park.

Health and Safety

As part of health and safety in the school, we encourage regular washing of hands, particularly around eating time and after toilet use. We will be reminding your child of the importance of hand washing on an ongoing basis. Unfortunately, germs and viruses spread very quickly in a classroom environment so it is vital that the children are encouraged to use a tissue when blowing their nose and to cover their mouth and turn away when coughing.

If your child develops any contagious illness such as chickenpox, please keep him away from school until the period of contagion is over and inform his teacher immediately. We recommend that you check your child regularly for head lice which is highly contagious, treat immediately if they occur and inform the teacher so that notification of possible risk may be sent out to other parents.

All information regarding your child’s health is treated in the strictest confidence.

Occasionally your permission will be required for dental, eye or other health examinations.
