All teachers in our school accept a duty of care towards the children in our school. Therefore, our Board of Management places a great emphasis on providing the appropriate levels of supervision throughout the school day.

This policy sets out our Board’s approach to the provision of this supervision on a day-to-day basis and how we ensure that all children are cared for in this context.

This policy was drafted based on a typical day in our school and it is based on our Health and Safety Statement, our Code of Behaviour and our Child Protection Policy. Details relating to educational outings, swimming lessons and other such occasions can be found in these above named policies.

Please note that throughout this policy, the term ‘parent’ or ‘parents’ also includes legal guardians and authorised adults.
