Out of School Hours Supervision

Supervision is provided by the staff of Ballyclough NS from 9.00am to 9.10am in the school playground. During wet weather, children will enter the class room from 9.00 onwards in order to stay dry. We ask that no children enter the school grounds prior to 9.00am on any day.

Entry & Exit to the School

Parents/guardians calling during the day to take pupils home early for any reason are required to enter the school via the door at the Secretary’s office and record the reason for taking pupils out early.

Anyone arriving late or needing to enter the school during the school day will have to go to the front door and use the buzzer. Then will then be required to sign via the sign book located at the secretary’s office.
