Summary of Class Meeting for Rang a 4 2022-2023
Based on the school code of behaviour - respect, tolerance and consideration
The class came up with the rules. The rules are based on kindness, respect, tolerance and consideration. We are following a restorative practice approach in school. We have a class meeting once a week.
The primary focus is to create a positive class atmosphere - we are a team and we work together

Parents may be unaware of actions being taken as teachers can only talk to parents about their own child.
Bullying is NOT tolerated in any way in the school. Our approach is to work with the victim and person/people doing the bullying to resolve issues. We adults must lead by example.
School begins at 8.30am. Children are marked late after 8.40am. It is very important your child is in on time as it is a chance to settle in, talk to friends and teachers.
Phone or e-mail the office or tell the class teacher or use Aladdin connects.

SEN – Special Educational Needs
All children are accepted and celebrated in our school. See school policy. Special needs are a very broad category. Some children may need help throughout their time in school or your child may need help for a period of time. Being fair is not giving everybody the same thing but giving everybody what they need. This is what we strive to do, balancing the needs of the group with the needs of the individual.

Coping with feelings, hopes and ambitions, Family, Ireland's clan system, friendship, caring, need for rules, rights and responsibilities, gender stereotyping, muscular dystrophy and acquired brain damage, Judaism, poverty, war, refugees, endangered species, pilgrimage
