Caidrimh sa scoil/ communications in school:

Faoi láthair, déanann an scoil chuile iarracht caidreamh maith a spreagadh i measc phobal na scoile. 

Má bhíonn buairt faoi leith ag tuismitheoir, ba chóir na céimeanna seo a leanas a bheith tógtha:In situations where parents have a particular issue the following steps should be taken:

  1. Arrange a meeting with your child’s teacher to discuss the issue further.
  2. Ask for another meet to follow up.
  3. Discuss the issue with the school principal – it’s better to let the teacher know you’d like to do this.
  4. If the issue is still unresolved parents are able to discuss the issue with the school Chairperson and/or put the issue in writing to the Board of Management.
