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.
Mr Tom Hartney, Deputy Principal, is responsible for drawing up and updating the Supervision Rota, which are on display outside the Staff Room.
Scoil Ide opens from 08:40 for children from 1st to 6th classes. No children are allowed on site ahead of this time.
Infant children are allowed on site from 08:45
Children enter the school grounds via five Gates. All these gates are supervised by at least one staff member daily
During Break Times (10:45-11:00 & 11:05-11:20 and 12:45-13.05 & 13:10- 13:30 ) each yard is supervised by at least one teacher. All SNAs are on yards associated with children on their caseload
10:45 -11:00 = Senior Infants Yard, 2nd Class Yard, 4th Class Yard, 6th Class Yard
11:05 - 11:20 = Junior Infants Yard, 1st Class Yard, 3rd Class Yard, 5th Class Yard
12:45-13.05 = Senior Infants Yard, 2nd Class Yard, 4th Class Yard, 6th class Yard
13:10 -13:30 = Junior Infants Yard, 1st Class Yard, 3rd Class Yard, 5th Class Yard
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 (see times above) after which they are expected to leave their classroom tidy. Each yard is supervised by at least one teacher. All SNAs are on yards associated with children on their caseload
Junior and Senior Infants finish their day at 13:45. Junior Infants Exit the school through Gate A on the Corbally Road while Junior Infants exit the school through Gate E on the Mill Road
At 2:40, children from 1st classes, 2nd clases and 4th classes exit through assigned gates
At 2:45, children from 3rd, 5th and 6th classes exit through assigned gates
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. There are teachers on Gate Duty at the five Gate exits.
