Information for Parents

Road Safety Around the School

We encourage parents to please exercise caution when dropping off or collecting children at the school gateway, which is a high risk area for children.

Remember you should NOT reverse out onto the main road as it is dangerous particularity around the school gate where children cannot be seen.

During drop-off and collection, please keep the area around the entrance to the school clear.

No Parking is allowed:

  • In front of the Thatch cottage

  • Directly across from the school (Where the yellow marking are)

  • The entrance to the field next to the school

In the interest of the safety of all children attending Scoil Réalt na Mara N.S. we are reliant on your continued vigilance when dropping your child to school and also on collection. Your child's safety and a continuous flow of traffic to and from the village will be ensured by adhering to the above guidelines. We greatly appreciate your continued support and cooperation.
