Incoming Junior Infants

Usually at this time of year we would be holding our Junior Infant reception day to introduce all our incoming junior infants to our school and allow them to meet their teachers. Unfortunately again this year, there is not a safe way to do this. We will be emailing Welcome Packs next week and will include a short video to introduce the children to the Junior Infant teachers. Similar to this year, next year’s Junior Infants will be invited to come to school briefly before the rest of the school returns. This will give them the opportunity to meet their teachers, see their classrooms and to become familiar with the layout of the school grounds. We will be in touch with all Junior Infant parents closer to the time.


Wellbeing Week 10-14 May

This week at Stepaside ETNS we are celebrating Wellbeing Week, jam packed with wonderful activities for both the pupils and the staff, like gratitude exercises, mindful walks, guided meditation, guest speakers and many more. Mindful Monday, Thankful Tuesday, Wellbeing Wednesday, Triumphant Thursday and Feelgood Friday 🙂 We hope the children enjoy every one of them.


School reopening plan

Please familiarise yourselves with the important documents below:

School reopening plan: SETNS COVID-19 Response Plan

General Getting Back to School Guidelines: SETNS Getting Back to School

Please see answers to FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Should you have any further questions around this, please refer to the communication piece in the "Getting back to school" document.

Reminder to anyone attending school who has travelled abroad:

Government policy, which is based on official public health advice, continues to advise against non-essential travel overseas for everyone.

It is a requirement for anyone coming into Ireland to restrict their movements for 14 days, and this includes school staff, parents and children or other students coming from abroad to attend school in Ireland.  Restricting your movements means staying indoors in one location and avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible.

Please also see a list of useful links and resources below should you have any further questions:
