  • Title: School History - Ladyswell National School
    Descriptive info: Scoil an Cheathrair Álainn, also known as Ladyswell National School, is a Catholic Primary School.. It first opened its doors on the 3rd of September 1984, in rented classrooms made available by Huntstown National School.. On that day we had 66 pupils and two classrooms for children from Junior Infants to 6th Class.. As numbers continued to increase in the school, children in the school were sent by bus to larger accomodation in Hartstown NS and after that to St.. Mochta's Old School, in Clonsilla, before we moved to our present school building in April 1987.. It's amazing to think that children living in Dromheath, across the road from our school today, used to have to get a bus to go to Scoil an Cheathrair Álainn.. Scoil an Cheathrair Álainn is named after the 'Four Saints of the Aran Islands' The four Saints are St Fursey, St Brendan of Birr, St Conal and St Bearchan and are known as 'An Ceathrar Álainn' -.. The Beautiful Four.. They are all buried in 'Teampeall an Cheathrair Álainn (Church of the four beautiful saints) on the Aran Islands as shown in the photographs above.. Just like our school, this Church is also beside a Holy Well which is called 'Tobar an Cheathrair Álainn'.. 'An Ceathrar Álainn' also represents the four most important aspects of Scoil an Cheathrair Álainn -.. the children, parents, school staff/management  ...   2009 we celebrated our 25th anniversary with a visit from the President Mary McAleese.. The school has earned 2 Green Flags -.. most recetly in 2011.. The school is now working on its 3rd Green Flag and for a Yellow Flag for the promotion of interculturalism and diversity in the school.. The school has recently been awarded the Digital School's award for the promotion and integration of Information Technology (IT) into all aspects of teaching and learning.. All classes now have a computer and Interactive Whiteboard in their rooms.. Approximately 150 children attend the school's Breakfast Club everyday and children from 3rd to 6th class have opportunity to attend the Homework Club after school.. The children also receive a healthy lunch in school everyday.. The children participate in many sports including Football, Athletics, Rugby, Swimming, Cricket and Basketball.. For the past five years 6th class children are given the opportunity to go on a Day Trip to Scotland or England.. These trips have included visits to Glasgow Celtic, Liverpool and Birmingham.. The school also has a Parents' Association who meet up once a month and play a very important role in the running of our school.. The school's Board of Management play a central role in the management of our school.. If you have any more information/photographs about our school's history please let us know so we can update the school's archive..

  • Title: Code of Discipline - Ladyswell National School
    Descriptive info: School Zone About Us School Policies.. Scoil an Cheathrair Alainn.. Code of Behaviour.. Scoil an Cheathrair Alainn Code of Behaviour is the result of the ongoing consultation and collaboration between the Principal, staff, pupils, parents and Board of Management.. It was reviewed and reformulated in April/June 2010 in the light of Developing a Code of Behaviour -.. Guidelines for Schools issued by the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB) and the Education Act 1998.. In drawing up the code, consideration has been given to the particular needs and the circumstances of the school and our pupils.. It has been approved by the Board of Management on and will be reviewed in.. School Ethos.. Our Code of Behaviour reflects our mission statement.. Aims.. To ensure that the learning environment and opportunities of each pupil are respected as each child has a right to education in a disruption free environment where they feel safe and secure.. To enhance the learning environment where children can make progress in all aspects of their development.. To help create an atmosphere of respect, tolerance and consideration for others and self, among pupils, staff, parents and other members of the wider school community.. To ensure the safety and well being of all members of the school community.. To promote good behaviour in our school.. To promote positive behaviour and self-.. discipline.. To ensure that the system of rules, rewards, and sanctions are implemented in a fair, appropriate and consistent manner and are understood and supported by pupils, parents, staff and the whole school community.. Promoting Positive Behaviour.. Our school uses Discipline for Learning which promotes positive behaviour.. Teachers develop clear and simple classroom rules and yard rules, through discussion with the children.. Teachers use a classroom management plan to promote positive behaviour.. This includes the class rules as mentioned above, an agreed reward system and the consequences that apply when a child fails to adhere to the rules.. Our school places greater emphasis on rewards than on sanctions in the belief that this will, in the long run, give best results.. Our approach to rewards and praise include the following:.. A word of praise privately or in front of class.. A visit to another member of staff for commendation.. Stickers, stamps, trophies.. Informing parent by good note in child's journal.. Certificates for good behaviour awarded after four and eight weeks.. Name recorded in Honours Book by Year Head after eight weeks.. Certificates for good behaviour, awarded at end of term award ceremonies, to children who have a specified number of clear weeks in their journal.. Special class treats e.. g.. Golden Time, extra play in the yard or class trips.. Regular visits to classrooms by Year Heads to encourage and praise good behaviour.. Individual Behaviour Plans and Targets as needed.. Behaviour Standards.. Pupils.. In order to create a happy school environment in which pupils can feel secure and make progress, every pupil is expected to.. Attend school regularly and punctually.. Be respectful of self and others.. Be kind and willing to help others.. Be courteous and well mannered e.. Sorry if I'm wrong, excuse me, please and thank you.. Be fair and forgiving.. Each pupil is expected to do their best in class both with work and behaviour.. Keep the school rules.. Help create a safe, positive environment.. Make a fresh start and learn from your mistake.. Our school rules reflect these expectations.. School Rules.. The rules are broadly similar in each class although at the beginning of each academic year each class teacher will draw up a list of classroom and yard rules through discussion, collaboration and agreement with the children.. Rules are kept to a minimum and.. are devised with regard for the health, safety and welfare of all members of the school community.. They should, where possible, emphasise positive behaviour.. Rules will be applied in a fair and consistent manner, with due regard to the age and specific needs of the pupils.. Where difficulties arise parents will be contacted at an early stage.. Classroom rules.. 1.. Be on time and have all your own books, copies, journal, pencils etc.. each day.. 2.. Do your work well and let others work without interruption.. 3.. Do what you are told immediately.. 4.. If you wish to speak, raise your hand and wait your turn.. 5.. Listen while others are speaking.. 6.. Stay in your workplace, unless told to do otherwise.. 7.. Keep to your own space at your table.. 8.. Do not make hurtful, nasty remarks to, or about, another pupil or member of staff.. 9.. Look after property.. Do not waste, damage or steal things.. 10.. Tell the truth.. 11.. Say sorry, thank you, please or excuse me as needed.. Yard Rules.. Stay in own yard at all times including time before school unless otherwise instructed by a teacher.. Do not leave own yard or school without permission.. Play in a way that is safe for yourself and for others.. Speak to one another and all school staff in a respectful manner.. When the bell rings freeze, then line up promptly, in an orderly manner until teacher brings you to your class.. Around the School Rules (for my own safety and that of others).. Walk in the school in a safe, quiet and orderly manner.. Be courteous and mannerly.. Do not walk through the car park or the garden.. Do not go through the P.. E.. hall if in use.. Ask for the teacher's permission to leave the classroom or the school, to go to another classroom or to the office.. Treat all property with care.. Enter and leave the school through the school gates.. After school hours only return to the school in an emergency and accompanied by an adult.. Unacceptable Behaviour.. Two levels of misbehaviour are recognised: minor and serious.. In cases of serious misbehaviour parents will be involved immediately and invited to meet the teacher/year head or principal to discuss their child's behaviour and agree a way forward.. Parents/Guardians who have concerns about their child's behaviour or/and welfare are advised to contact the school as soon as possible as early intervention can help all involved.. Examples of Serious misbehaviour.. Behaviour that is hurtful (including bullying).. Behaviour that interferes with teaching and learning.. Threats or physical hurt to another person.. Damage to property.. Theft.. Assault on a teacher or pupil.. Other behaviours as may arise with serious consequences for self and others.. Consequences of bad behaviour.. All bad behaviour disrupts learning for oneself and others.. It often makes others feel unsafe and insecure.. Bad behaviour can easily become a habit.. Sanctions.. Sanctions are normally imposed in the hope that the pupil will learn to choose positive behaviour, self -.. discipline and raise self-.. esteem.. Minor sanctions are exercised in the context of reinforcing the positive behaviour of other pupils e.. Well done….. I like the way you are sitting up straight with your arms folded.. It must be clear why the sanction is being applied.. The consequence must be proportionate to the misbehaviour.. The pupil must understand why s/he is receiving a sanction and a change to positive behaviour is required in the future.. There is a clear distinction between minor and serious offences.. The misbehaviour rather than the person is the focus of any sanction.. Group punishments are normally avoided.. When and if appropriate an investigation may well be carried out to establish the facts.. The following steps are normally taken when the children behave inappropriately.. They are listed in order of severity with one being for a minor misbehaviour and ten being for serious misbehaviour.. The list is by no means exhaustive nor necessarily sequential.. The aim of any sanction is to prevent the behaviour occurring again and if necessary to help the pupils devise strategies for this.. Reasoning with pupil and possible development of a contract.. Verbal warning including advice on how to improve and record in journal.. Temporary separation from peers within class and/or temporary removal to another class.. Referral to year head / Principal and communication with parents re classroom behaviour.. Temporary separation from peers in the yard.. Yellow and Red cards.. For Red card offences children will have time out in a supervised location during break times, for up to three days.. Loss of privileges.. Principal communicating with parents re yard behaviour.. Exclusion ( Suspension or Expulsion ) from school ( in accordance with the Education Welfare Act 2000 ) and the Education Act 1998.. C/F Appendix on request from school.. *In exceptional circumstances, each behavioural situation will be judged on a case-.. by-.. case basis.. *In applying any sanction, the duty of care to the student is maintained.. *The standards and rules contained in the Code of Behaviour will apply in any situation where the student, although outside the school, is still the responsibility of the school.. Examples include school tours, games and extracurricular activities and attendance at events organised by the school.. *While classroom and yard discipline are kept separate to promote positive relationships between teacher and child, in instances of serious misbehaviour, privileges will be withdrawn e.. trips outside school, irrespective of where the incident happened i.. e.. yard or  ...   to commit to the school's code of behaviour by the pupils and parents/guardiams.. The school will help the pupil catch up on work missed and the pupil will be given the opportunity and support for a fresh start.. Where a satisfactory resolution of a problem is achieved, a pupil may be re-.. admitted to school within a suspension period at the discretion of the Principal and/or the chairperson of the Board of Management.. If a pupil continues to misbehave s/he may be suspended for a major fixed period (up to ten days) by the B.. to allow for consultation with both the pupil and the pupil's parents/guardians to address the issues.. As outlined above, parents/guardians and pupil will be given the opportunity to discuss the issues with the Principal/Board of Management.. The Education Welfare Officer will be informed when a student has been suspended for three days or more cumulatively.. Section 29 Appeal -.. when the total number of days for which the student has been suspended in the current school year reaches 20 days the parents may appeal the suspension under section 29 of the Education Act and will be given information about how to appeal.. Procedures for expulsion.. Subsequent to the above suspension procedures and meetings with parents/guardians, if serious/gross incidents of misbehaviour continue, the pupil will be recommended for permanent expulsion by the Board of Management.. The grounds for expulsion include the following:.. The pupil's behaviour is an on-.. going danger to himself.. The pupil's behaviour is a persistent cause of significant disruption to the learning of others or to the teaching process.. The pupil's continued presence in the school constitutes a real and significant threat to safety.. The student is responsible for serious damage to property.. Authority to expel is reserved to the Board of Management.. In Determining the appropriateness of expelling a pupil the BOM will refer to the factors to consider before proposing to expel a student.. These factors are similar to those mentioned above in relation to suspension.. In exceptional circumstances, pupils may be expelled for a first offence.. This may apply in the event of.. A serious threat of violence against another student or member of staff.. Actual violence or physical assault.. Procedures in respect of expulsion -.. six steps.. o Step 1 -.. A detailed investigation carried out under the direction of the Principal.. o Step 2 -.. A recommendation to the Board of Management.. o Step 3 -.. Consideration by the Board of Management of the Principal's recommendation; and the holding of a hearing with parents and other relevant personnel.. o Step 4 -.. Board of Management deliberations and actions following the hearing.. o Step 5 -.. Consultations arranged by the Educational Welfare Officer.. o Step 6 -.. Confirmation of the decision to expel.. Section 29 Appeals (p86).. A parent may appeal a decision to expel to the secretary general of the Department of Education and Science (DES).. A form for such an appeal is available from the DES.. Keeping Records.. Class Level.. The school has a record sheet in pupil's journal for documenting problem behaviour.. Class teachers also keep a record of problem behaviour.. This includes the nature and seriousness of the behaviour, the context of the behaviour, the impact of the behaviour and the interventions tried to date.. Playground.. Serious incidents of misbehaviour on the playground are recorded on the school record sheets in Yard Folders.. School Records.. A record will be kept of letters or phonecalls to parents in relation to pupil's behaviour.. A record will also be kept of communication with outside agencies and with the Board of Management..

The principal will report all suspensions to the Board with reasons for and the duration of each suspension.. A report will be made to the NEWB in accordance with the NEWB reporting guidelines.. Records in respect of expulsion -.. all data, letters, etc.. will be kept as above.. Pupils with special needs.. Pupils with special needs will be required to follow the school's 'Code of Behaviour' but teachers will use their professional judgment in relation to regularity and level of sanctions.. While teachers must be seen to be fair in the eyes of other children who may have exhibited the same type of misdemeanors, they will also show leniency and understanding in relation to children with specific learning/ behavioural / emotional difficulties.. Parents of these children will be kept informed of their child's behaviour on a regular basis and may be requested to work with the school in devising effective strategies to help the child to improve his/her behaviour.. This may involve agreeing a behaviour plan or contract or working and co-.. operating with the Resource Teacher and a Special Needs Assistant(SNA), if an SNA is deployed to assist a pupil/class.. The devising of such strategies may also entail contacting and meeting with relevant out of school agencies.. Understanding behaviour.. Staff at Scoil an Cheathrair Alainn are also aware of the factors that affect behaviour.. These factors include external and interpersonal factors (such as parent and family patterns and relationships, peer groups/friends and neighbourhood and community factors) and within-.. person factors (including age and stage of development, social skills deficit, personality and temperament, physical and medical characteristics and ability to learn).. The staff also believe that students' behaviour can change and will endeavour to assist pupils to modify their behaviour.. Examples of support and intervention for pupils are outlined below.. Interventions and support.. Classroom management plan as agreed with all students at the start of the school year i.. Rewards, rules and sanctions.. Social skills programme, promotion of friendship and self esteem as part of S.. P.. H.. Yard games/activities may be organised if the behaviour is taking place on the yard.. Use of a behavioural check-.. list to evaluate whether any modifications could be made to the learning environment.. A Behaviour Plan may be considered when a child consistently exhibits challenging and disruptive behaviour.. A Behaviour Plan will focus on a limited number of behavioural targets.. It is envisaged that the child will be involved in the setting of targets.. If a child is entitled to a support teacher on the basis of his behavioural needs, the support teacher may set targets in consultation with the child, the class teacher and the parents.. For pupils who exhibit particularly challenging behaviour, support services may be requested to assist in responding to the needs of the pupils.. Sources of support may include, the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS), Special Education Support Service (SESS), HSE Community Psychology Services, the National Council for Special Education, Community Support Services i.. , Barnardos and Springboard.. Communicating and implementing the code.. o All parents will be issued with a copy of the Code of Behaviour.. o The staff will endeavour to ensure that all parents can access and understand the code.. o Special effort will be made to ensure that pupils with special educational needs understand the school rules, the reward systems and the consequences of misbehaviour..
