Establish a good routine in the mornings and evenings so your child is prepared for the school day ahead.
Make sure your child goes to school regularly and follows the school rules.
Ensure your child arrives at school on time. In Scoil Aonghusa Junior we encourage all parents to have their children in the line by 9 a.m. Should you arrive late you must sign your child in and enter via the main door.
Arrange dental and medical appointments outside school hours when possible.
Always inform the school if your child is absent due to illness – this should be followed up with a written note when your child returns to school.
Take family holidays outside term time.
Talk to your child about school and take an interest in their school work (including homework).
Attend parent evenings and school events.
Praise and reward your child’s achievements at school.
Always support school staff in their efforts to control difﬁcult or challenging behaviour.
Discuss any problems or difﬁculties with the school – staff are there to help and will be supportive.
If you are having any problems in regards to your child's attendance or punctuality please contact us. We are here to help and support you.
