Update on 11th December 2020.

Dear Parent

We have just received an email today from the Department of Education regarding free school meal payments and the availability of school meals in December/January.


As it currently stands:

  • school meals will now be available on MONDAY 21st DECEMBER.  We are still waiting to hear from transport whether or not they can accommodate an early closure on 21st December and will let you know as soon as possible.
  • school meals are not available on MONDAY 4th JANUARY.  We are therefore planning to take Monday 4th January as a School Development Day and school will reopen to pupils on TUESDAY 5th JANUARY.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but you will appreciate that we are acting on information as we receive it from the Department of Education.

We will be in touch shortly to advise parents re closing time on 21st December.  If the Department of Education issue any revised dates, we will let you know immediately.


Please Note: Due to the additional closure in October 2020, we have had to make some changes to school closures for 2020/21.


After Christmas, school will recommence on MONDAY 4th JANUARY 2021 - updated to Tuesday 5th January 2021.


After Easter, school will recommence on Monday 12th April 2021.
