Communion / Confirmation update;
18th Sep 2020 12:57 pm
Dear Parents and Guardians, Please see below notice that was issued today to all the Parishes from Mgr. Dan O’ Connor It now seems most likely that the entire County Dublin will be placed on Level 3 of the GovernmentsCOVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan,beginning at midnight tonight for a three-week period. It is likely therefore that places of worship will remain closed from midnight tonight, except for private prayer, weddings and funerals. Unfortunately, Confirmation and First Communion services will therefore not be possible during this period and will have to be postponed. Regards, Mgr. Dan O’Connor.

Dear parents & guardians, As we approach our school reopening, we are putting together procedures for our safe return. Included is our COVID 19 school response plan for your attention. Many of you have questions so we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions below. Kind regards, Mr Hayes https://285362fb26da63f7326f-7ddcee2d8e46ffbdcbffc2b71f07fb3a.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/9162_20200818161419.pdf https://285362fb26da63f7326f-7ddcee2d8e46ffbdcbffc2b71f07fb3a.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/4981_20200818161420.pdf

St Aidan’s SNS update.
12th Aug 2020 1:21 pm
Dear Parent / Guardian, RE: Physical Distancing and Safe School Attendance We are currently working on upgrading our procedures and routines within the school to ensure that there is as much Physical Distancing as is possible in our building. We will apply physical distancing in a practical and sensible way, recognising that the learning environment cannot be dominated by a potentially counterproductive focus on this issue. Physical Distancing will be achieved in two ways: - Increasing Separation. This will be achieved by re-configuring the classrooms to maximise physical distancing. Each class will be referred to as a bubble and we will ensure that there is as little contact as possible between children in different bubbles. Within the bubbles, children will be organised into pods. A pod is a group of children (normally 6) who will sit together and who will stay in their pod while in the bubble, or classroom. Decreasing Interaction. This will be achieved by decreasing the potential for children from different bubbles to interact. There will be marked routes for various bubbles to enter and exit the school and to access their classrooms. Bubbles will have different mid-morning and lunch-time access to the playground. We will make these routines enjoyable activities for the children, emphasising safety at all times. While all children will be welcome back to school, we would remind parents that, where children are displaying colds, coughs or flu like symptoms, they should not be sent to school. Children who display such symptoms in school will be isolated and parents asked to collect them from the school. Children who have travelled from countries not on the Green List should not attend school during the 14-day self-isolation period Further information on COVID-19 symptoms in children is available at: - https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/if-your-child-has-symptoms.html Teachers will make children aware of the proper hygiene procedures regarding hand washing and etiquette related to sneezing, coughing or spitting. We would be grateful if you could also emphasise safe behaviour in this regard to your children at home as part of the preparation for returning to school. Our aim remains to re-open the school in an orderly safe manner, while reassuring the children and making them feel comfortable, safe and relaxed with their friends in the new school environment. This will be achieved by all of us working towards this common goal. Le meas, Iggy Keane, Cathaoirleach, An Bhóird Bainistíochta. Tomás Hayes, Príomhoide

Dear Parent / Guardian, I hope you and your families are keeping well. As you are aware, our school has now been closed since 12th March due to the COVID-19 situation. We are now hoping to re-open our school safely, in line with current guidance and recommendations. Re-opening the school safely will require the co-operation of all members of our School Community – BoM, School Leadership, Staff, Parents and Pupils. We will all be called on to play our part in ensuring that re-opening of the school is done in a safe manner which prevents the spread of the virus and allows the vital work of Teaching and Learning to proceed with as little disruption as possible. We have been working on our plan for the safe reopening of the school for some weeks now and have published the DES COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable reopening of Primary and Special Schools on our school website. The Response Plan gives details of : •Physical preparation, signage, hand sanitiser stations, •Advice, procedures and training for the safe return to working in the school for all school staff and pupils. •General and specific advice on how all pupils, staff, parents and visitors will prevent the spread of the virus. We have also published our COVID-19 Policy Statement on the school website. Our BoM will keep you informed as to the progress of our reopening plans and provide you with the information required by you to play your part in safely re-opening the school. We are really looking forward to welcoming our children back to school and will be doing all that we can to ensure that the return to school is a safe and enjoyable experience for the children. We will be in touch with you again before school reopens. Le meas, IggyKeane Cathaoirleach, An Bhóird Bainistíochta.

About Us

St Aidan’s SNS was built in 1983 at the same time as St Brigid’s NS. Before it officially opened as a school the building was used to host bingo nights and run classes such as tae kwondo. A school for traveller children was also set up on the site. In 1984 St Aidan’s moved in with eight teachers and worked alongside the Traveller School. Eventually the two schools were merged and the now St. Aidan’s became one of the first multicultural school of its kind in Ireland. The huge mural in our school hall which was painted in 1990 by an artist and our pupils is a celebration of our school roots and what we like to do.

Fáilte romhaibh go dtí St Aidan’s SNS.

As Principal of St Aidan’s, along with my dedicated staff, it  gives us great pleasure to welcome you to our new school website.

At St Aidan’s we welcome change.

Since our inception we have been educating and guiding the young boys and girls of our local community and beyond.We have a mural in our school hall depicting the multicultural make up of our school, of which we are very proud.We believe that we are an integral part of the local community and actively encourage our pupils to act and speak of their school with great pride.Each day we strive to make our school a friendly, welcoming space, ensuring that all who engage with our school get a true understanding of what our ethos is.At St Aidan’s we believe that all children are different and brilliant in their own unique way. We endeavour to provide as broad a schedule of activities for our pupils to give each child every opportunity to develop their own unique talents.  We expect each child to engage fully with the curriculum along with our dedicated teachers and staff who continue each day to work together with parents/guardians and build a relationship that is mutually beneficial for all members of the broad team that is your child’s education. Our goal is to ensure that each child is afforded the best opportunity to learn and grow.Our is aim is that the four years spent in St Aidan’s will be some of the best and most beneficial years of your child’s life. Each child will get to experience a broad range of sport, music, dance, drama and art both within school hours and also at an extracurricular level.  Thanks to our extremely dedicated staff, our Board of Management and our wonderful Parents’ Association, this is all possible.We constantly strive to keep the partnership between staff, parents and management open, welcoming and accepting to all. I am at all times willing to meet with parents who wish to find out more about our school.  In addition to our website, our school app further improves these collaborations. Everything about St Aidan`s SNS can now be found in on central location.The app will be updated daily/weekly and will provide up to date school information, contact details, information on school policies etc. It will also allow for regular a communication stream between parents and the school.

We hope with the introduction of this website, we can further build upon our fantastic school community.

Le meas,

Mr. Tomás Hayes
