Please read St. Anne’s Information Statement for returning to school 2021 which is supported by the government’s COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable operation of Primary and Special Schools. The purpose of this information is to provide clear and helpful guidance for the safe operation through the prevention, early detection and control of COVID-19 in schools. It provides key messages to minimise the risk of COVID-19 for staff, pupils, families and the wider community while recognising the importance of education for the health and wellbeing of pupils and society as a whole. The assistance and co-operation of all staff, pupils, parents, and visitors is critical to the success of our Response Plan.

“As we acknowledge the need to provide an appropriate education for all, our Primary aged pupils access the Primary School Curriculum and Guidelines for Teachers of Students with General Learning Disabilities, while the Junior Cycle Level 1 Learning Programme guides our teaching for Senior pupils aged12 to 18. In addition, school leavers engage in a School Leavers Programme and graduate to appropriate adult training services,at 18 years of age.

The staff of St. Anne’s School aims to provide a positive educational environment for the pupils in their care, and strive to ensure the individual needs of each pupil are catered for, to help them reach their full potential. We care about all aspects of our pupils’ wellbeing and development – intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical.”
