Rules of the School

The Staff and Management of St. Cronan's B.N.S. would appreciate your co-operation
in encouraging your child to respect our School Rules,
the more important of which are as follows:

• Pupils are required to be in school each morning by 8:40 a.m. at which time they will be brought to class by their teacher. While the gates may be open earlier the Board of Management and Staff do not accept responsibility for children arriving before 8:25 a.m.

• Pupils must attend school regularly. A written explanation is required when they are absent. Permission for a pupil to leave the school before the time of dismissal is required, in writing, from the parents / guardians.

• Pupils are not allowed to leave the school premises during the day.

• While at school pupils should wear their school uniform, including a tie. They are also expected to be tidy in appearance. They may wear the school tracksuit on P.E. days.

• Pupils are not allowed to bring fizzy drinks, nuts or nut products, chewing gum or crisps to school.

• In the interest of Health & Safety, the boys are not permitted to wear earrings.

• Pupils are expected at all times to show respect towards each other, towards the staff and parents who may be assisting with supervision. Pupil misbehaviour is unacceptable and will be regarded as serious.

• Pupils are expected to treat school property with respect and may be liable for repairs.
