Welcome to the website for St. Patrick's N.S. Stamullen, Co. Meath.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to our school website.

As you may be aware the Dept of Education has informed us that contact tracing will return to schools from Monday 29th November, albeit in a different format.

We will still depend on parents/guardians to inform us if their child has received a positive PCR test. The Irish Independent created a short video which explains clearly how the new system will work. Click here.

There is still some confusion on when antigen tests should be used and when you should book a PCR test.

  • Antigen tests should only be used for those who are asymptomatic 
  • PCR tests should be used for anyone displaying symptoms 
  • The Irish Times have Q&A document on 'when to take an antigen test and symptoms to watch for'. This is really informative. Click here to read
  • The HSE has released an updated isolation guide for children under 13 years of age which gives more information on what to do if your child receives a positive PCR or is considered a close contact. Click here for more information

As always if your child is displaying any symptoms of Covid 19 DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL.

 As per our Covid plan (click here for full document) we will continue with our staggered opening and closing times.

  • Parents/Guardians are reminded they are not permitted to drive into the school car park.
  • Each group should aim to arrive at the school a minute or two immediately preceding their start time. Congregation of adults and children should be avoided. Pupils should enter by the designated gate.
  • Children will arrive and exit at staggered times. The Department of Education allows us assembly time of 20 minutes per day, which we will use to preserve the core teaching and learning time for each pupil. Children will enter at their designated time and use designated entry points.
  • We will be using the first initial of surnames for arrival and dismissal times.
    • A -F -Arrival time 8.50am.           Dismissal time 2.15pm
    • G- L - Arrival time 8.55am.          Dismissal time 2.20pm
    • M-R -Arrival time 9.00am.           Dismissal time 2.25pm
    • S -Z -Arrival time 9.05am.           Dismissal time 2.30pm
  • Parents CANNOT enter the school with their children. Ms Slacke and Ms Doherty will be available for any urgent concerns
  • Junior and Senior Infants will go home as normal at 1.30pm and will enter and be released through designated doors/gates.
  • Gates will open just before 8.50 am. Pupils will not be allowed to play on the yard in the morning-they must go directly to their classroom, observing social distancing.
  • We ask for co-operation with these times as it will mean that the numbers congregating on school grounds at any one time will be minimised.
  • No adults, other than staff members, should enter the building.
  • Messages for teachers can be sent by classdojo, email, or by phoning the school office.

We do have some space available in a few classes. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for an application form.

 Many thanks in advance for all your support.

Mise le meas,
Aoife Slacke

In an effort to keep everyone safe and well we remind parents/guardians that they will need to fill in the Return to Education form every time their child is absent.

Children cannot enter the classroom until the teacher has received this form. 

The RETURN TO EDUCATION FORM can be found by clicking on our Aladdin Connect App and a hard copy can be found here

Remember DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IF:

  • They are feeling unwell
  • They, or any member of the household, has to attend or a Covid Test.
  • If they have been deemed a 'Household Close Contact' of a positive case

Kind regards

Aoife

See the image attached for a list of symptoms to check for before sending your child to school. If your child has any new onset symptoms and feels unwell or seems off form, do not send them to school and contact your GP for advice, if necessary.

The HSE has provided information for parents about the changes to contact tracing and testing for children aged between three months and 13 years in early learning and care, school-aged childcare, education, primary-school sports and social settings.
