In accordance with Circular 81/2017, “Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post Primary Schools 2017” PETNS is required to organise two separate half-day school closures during the 2017/18 school year.
The Department of Education has allocated this time to allow us, as a school community, to engage with the revised Child Protection procedures and to access the support and training available.
PETNS will close at 12 noon on Friday 9th February 2018.
All PETNS staff will complete Universal e-Learning programme developed by Túsla on 9th February 2018. This programme was written to support all personnel, regardless of profession, in recognising concerns about children and reporting such concerns, as required.
