**Revised Arrangements*** from 7th September for drop-off and collection:

To comply with DE guidance and to ease congestion for drop-off and collection in the morning and afternoon we ask parents to adhere to the following arrangements.


Morning arrangements

  • Pupils should not be on the school grounds before 9.00am (There will be no supervision before 9am);
  • DE advise that, when possible, parents should not send children to school on school buses. If children are travelling by bus, it is recommended that they wear a face mask and sit with family members.
  • To ease congestion, we ask parents taking children by car to park in the chapel carpark and drop off between 9am and 9.30am. Please enter the carpark from Rockstown Rd and leave via Creggan Rd;
  • On arrival, children walk directly around the outside of the building to their classrooms via the Emergency doors, where available;
  • Children wash their hands upon arrival in the classroom;
  • Parents escorting children to classes are asked to observe Social Distancing guidelines.


Collection arrangements

Primary One – Three:  Children must be collected from school at the following times.

  • R1 children to be collected 1.15pm:- Mon 7th & Tue 8th, thereafter 2.15pm.
  • P1 children will be collected at 1.00pm all next week (w/b 7th), thereafter 2.15pm.
  • Primary Two/ Rang a Dó children will be collected at 2.15pm
  • Primary Three / Rang a Tri, to aid the transition for these children, we ask parents to continue to collect these children at 2.15pm during the month of September.

P4 to 7/ R 4-7: From Monday 7th September, we ask parents who are collecting children in cars to collect children from 3pm- 3.15pm. Bus children and children using Camowen Partnership will remain in classes until 3.15pm.


We appreciate your continued support and we will continue to monitor and keep these arrangements under review.


Camowen Partnership’s After-school Club

Years 1 – 3 children registered with Camowen Partnership can avail of their service but there will be no in-school supervision between 2.00pm and 3.15pm. Yr 4 – Yr 7 children can use the service from 3.15pm.



Under current guidance, visitors/parents will not be permitted in the school building without an appointment.  If you would like to speak to a teacher about your child’s progress, we can arrange a socially distanced meeting or a meeting over the phone.


School Meals

Please don’t send dinner money to the school as we are establishing a Cashless system. This will be up and running in the next week. In the meantime, a record has been kept of those taking a school dinner and you will be able to pay for these via the app next week. Guides on how to do this will be sent home today.
