For the child's first admission to a school it is necessary to provide the following:

  • Birth Certificate – proof of age.
  • Immunisation Programme Certificate.
  • Address and phone number.
  • Alternative phone number of friend or relatives for emergencies only.
  • Doctor's name.


Five year olds enrolling for the first time are given free stationery as a gesture of goodwill from the school. Other students are given a stationery list at the end of the year, so that items can be purchased before the beginning of the new year. All items should be clearly named, and are required on the first day of term.


  • Does your child:
  • Know their own name, address and telephone number well enough to repeat when necessary?
  • Know the safest way to school and be aware of road safety?
  • Put away play things after using them?
  • Take off and put on outer clothing without assistance?
  • Tie their own shoes?
  • Know how to use a tissue?
  • Know how to wash hands after using the toilet?

MOTHER – FATHER: As parents what can you do to help?

  • Talk to them about starting school.
  • Buy clothes that are easy to manage.

LABEL CLEARLY all possessions that your child will bring to school. It is not wise to send good toys to school.

All lost property – and we do acquire quite a lot – is kept in the Resource Room, and is always available for parent's inspection. Unclaimed lost property is donated to a charity.
