Every school in Ireland needs to have policies and procedures. These help each school to guide the actions of all individuals involved with the school. They ensure and endorse the well-being of all families, children, staff, volunteers, guests and everyone who is connected to the school. When policies and procedures are well thought out and, most importantly, implemented they provide common understanding and agreement on how things should be done at the school. Procedures provide clear instructions and guidelines on what should/must be done in a particular set of circumstances or with regard to a particular issue.
Policies and procedures help new staff and families to familiarise themselves with the practices of the school and gives them information about what to expect from the school.
The policies written to date conform with the guidelines of the Department of Education and Science and TUSLA. These policies have all been approved by the Board of Management; except where the word Draft is used.
