A link to our Child Safeguarding Statement for 2019 is attached below.
The CAPP programme (Stay Safe) is a primary school based approach to the prevention of child abuse. The aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying through the provision of a personal safety education programme for children at primary school level, continuing professional development for teachers, training for Boards of Management and information sessions for parents.
The Stay Safe programme itself is a personal safety skills programme designed for use with primary school children from Junior Infants through to 6th class. The programme seeks to enhance children’s self-protective skills by participation in lessons on safe and unsafe situations, bullying, inappropriate touch, secrets, telling and stranger danger.
The programme aims to give children the skills necessary to enable them to recognise and resist abuse/victimisation and teaches them that they should always tell (an adult that can help) about any situation which they find unsafe, upsetting, threatening, dangerous or abusive.

We have completed our programme of Cooking All Stars. The children and staff really enjoyed the programme. We incorporated a lot of different areas of the curriculum including SPHE, Science and procedural writing in English.The children are continuing to practice all the recipes they learned in school and are using the skills they learned to try new recipes.
We are very lucky to be chosen as one of the fifty pilot schools for SuperValu Cooking All Stars.
The SuperValu Cooking All-Stars will give children the confidence to safely handle tricky and precarious tasks like preparing vegetables and safely cooking healthy recipes like scrambled eggs, banana pancakes and even a delicious quesadilla.
Cooking All-Stars is designed to teach primary school children the crucial life skill of cooking to ensure that the next generation is going to be healthier and more confident in the kitchen.
The programme was carefully designed by a panel of nutritionists, chefs and teachers to make sure that both the teachers and the children will enjoy the programme as well as learn about practical life skills and a healthy eating ethos along the way.
We are learning about procedural writing, the food pyramid and healthy eating as part of the Cooking All Stars programme.
Watch out Neven Maguire!
