Privacy Notification – COVID-19

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

In line with guidelines from the Department of Education certain procedures will apply should a pupil in our school test positive for Covid-19. If a positive case was to be confirmed, the Public Health Department of the HSE will carry out a Public Health Risk Assessment and will decide on the appropriate actions to be taken. The school does not have a direct role in this decision-making process.  

The Public Health Risk Assessment may indicate that contact tracing is necessary. To facilitate this, the school may be asked to furnish the names and contact details of pupils (and their parents/guardians) who are close contacts of a confirmed case. If this information is requested by the Public Health Department of the HSE, the school will process the information in compliance with data protection laws*. The information will be given in a secure manner, only to named individuals and only the information necessary for the contact tracing will be given. It is the HSE and not the school, who will carry out any necessary contact tracing.

Should you have any concerns please contact the school.

Le meas,

William Greene

Secretary to the Board of Management

Back to School Plan C.B.S Primary Nenagh

August 20th, 2020.

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

I hope you are all well and are enjoying the last of the summer holidays. The staff here at C.B.S Primary cannot wait to welcome back all our boys on September 1st. A huge amount of preparation has taken place to ensure your sons return to school will be safe and enjoyable. Please see below our plan for re-opening the school which I would encourage you all to become familiar with.

Please pay particular attention to Drop-Off and Collection plans for each day.

It is understandable that many boys may be worried about coming back, but I would like to reassure you that your son will be coming back to a safe and caring environment, where he will continue to learn, develop and have fun each day. Some of our procedures and routines have changed in line with government guidelines, and as these routines become part of your child’s daily school day, I would ask for your continued support and co-operation.

The Board of Management and staff of C.B.S Primary have always been committed to ensuring that our school is a fantastic place for your child to attend, and as we embark on an unprecedented school year, we would like to re-affirm that commitment.

We look forward to seeing you all again on September 1st and should you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact the school.

Le meas,

William Greene

Principal
