The main pupil entrance doors are open at 8.40 a.m. for surnames A-J and 8.50 a.m. for surnames K-Z. Once opened, the children are allowed to go straight to their classrooms via the playground. The gates will close promptly at 9 a.m. and the register is taken at 9.00 a.m.
The staff of St. Patrick's believe that this 'soft start' to the day encourages a calm, orderly and managed start to their day. You as parents are expected to ensure your child arrives on time for daily registration. If they are late, they must enter the school via the office and sign in explaining why they are late.
