School Warden

FaceBook  Twitter  

The BOM are delighted to announce the Pamela O'Connor will begin in her new post as Wexford County Council's School Warden at the Faythe School tomorrow Thursday 25th October 2018.

All connected with the school are thrilled that this vital service has resumed and the BOM would specifically like to thank Councillors George Lawlor and John Hegarty and County Council Staff Eamonn Hore, David Codd and Kate Stafford for overseeing the transition of 'warden staff' at the school.

All parents / guardians are asked to remind their child(ren) of the following points that will be regularly repeated in classes

No cars are allowed to stop on the 'zig-zags' immediately before the Crossing.

Children and adults are asked not to

talk to the Warden as she is working - as distractions can be dangerous

not to start to 'cross' until the Warden is in position on the middle of the Crossing with arms outstretched.

Children First 2018

FaceBook  Twitter  

On 11th December 2017 the Commencement of all sections of Children First Act 2015 was announced.

What now are the implications for the Faythe School and your child(ren)?

All teachers are now ‘mandated persons’. There are two areas of responsibility which will apply to mandated persons in a primary school:

  • Where a mandated person knows, believes or has reasonable grounds to suspect, on the basis of information that he or she has received, acquired or becomes aware of that a child:
    • has been harmed
    • is being harmed
    • is at risk of being harmed

He or she must report that knowledge, belief or suspicion, to the Child and Family Agency (Tusla) as soon as practicable.

  • Where a child believes that he or she:
    • has been harmed
    • is being harmed
    • is at risk of being harmed

and discloses that belief to a mandated person, the mandated person must report that disclosure to Tusla as soon as practicable.

School Uniform

FaceBook  Twitter  

The School Tracksuit can be purchased from Hore’s Stores, 31 Sth. Main Street, Wexford. It used to be available from 'Sports Savers' and who knows they may have another 'liquidation sale' where bargains can be picked up. A maroon / or white polo shirt is worn under the tracksuit and these can be purchased where you please.

 Children are required to wear either the school uniform or the school tracksuit...again the choice is yours but most children seem happier in the tracksuit

The old maroon tracksuit can be worn until it is no longer usable or fixable….only then do you need to purchase the new blue tracksuit.

Runners / comfortable shoes of choice are proven favourites and once safe to wear are fine.
