Wicklow Educate Together NS – Plan for the Week Ahead

Dear school community

Please see below our plan for the week ahead to help keep you informed of what is happening in our school.

Important Early Closure Date: Reminder that the school will close early on Friday 29th September to facilitate a staff meeting. Phased closure from 12-12.20. Further details closer to the date.

Start of Year Assessment and Planning

As usual and as part of planning for teaching and learning for the year ahead, our teachers are completing informal checks and assessments with the children this month. These are a standard part of our school year, and help to inform teaching and learning appropriately for the term and year ahead. On occasions, this may involve the children completing an assessment with one of our support teachers outside of the classroom – this may be done individually or in small groups. On other occasions, this may be a whole class assessment. The children are quite used to this, and there is no need for any concern. If you have any questions, however, as always please link in with your child’s class teacher via email to [email protected]. Thank you.
