As teachers we accept the duty of care, which devolves to us. In Scoil Ide we make every effort to ensure that the children given into our care are adequately supervised. Mrs. Maureen Hobbins, Assistant Principal, is responsible for drawing up and updating the Supervision Rota, which are on display outside the Staff Room. During Break Time (11.00-11.15) seven teachers supervise six yards. The Rules for each yard are revised and reviewed regularly and are well known and repeated often to the children. All classes have copies of the relevant rules. The teacher on yard duty remains with the classes until their own teacher has picked them all up. In the event of a planned absence the teacher arranges for the next teacher on the rota to swap supervision duties.
The Board of Management accepts no responsibility for children before 9 a.m. Children are supervised during lunchtime (12.45-12.55) after which they are expected to leave their classroom tidy. Six teachers supervise five yards and the Senior School during lunch break (12.55-1.15)
At 2.45 p.m. the children disperse in an orderly manner and leave through their allocated exit. Teachers ensure an orderly dismissal and that all classrooms are vacated at this time.
