Parents’ Association

PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION

The staff of Scoil Íosagáin aim to work closely with parents in a way that will foster close co-operation, mutual support and regular communication.

The school operates an ‘open door’ policy to facilitate easy access for parents. Parents are welcome to the school to discuss any issue of mutual concern or interest.
Parent – Teacher meetings take place both on a formal and informal basis. This process begins with the parents of children who are starting school who are invited to meet the Principal and teachers before their children actually start.

Parents are invited to support teachers in the classroom especially in areas requiring special skills and talents.
We welcome any parents who wish to get involved in Lunchtime Clubs or After- school Clubs.

We also welcome parents who wish to volunteer as part of our Literacy Lift-Off Team. This is an intervention in Senior Infants to enhance reading, writing and oral language skills.

If you wouild like to join our Panel of Vetted Volunteers please contact School Reception.

The school organises Parenting Courses on an annual basis, giving parents an opportunity to come together in a supportive and relaxed environment, to discuss issues of interest and concern relating to their children.
