Parents’ Page

Welcome to our parents page! In our school, we value the input of parents as we feel they are the primary educators of their children. Click on the link below for tips that may be helpful. 


There are many events arranged throughout the year where parents and extended family members are invited into the school. We love to see new faces at all our events.

Home School Community Liaison Teacher (HSCL)

We are also extremely fortunate to have access to a HSCL teacher, Mr David Fagan. Mr Fagan regularly organises courses for parents and fun events as well as opportunities for parents to come into the classroom. Some of these activities include:

  • Literacy for Fun
  • First Aid
  • Coffee Morning
  • Maths for Fun

Mr Fagan is available to provide support for parents in relation to the education system, the school and the education of your child. Please call/text him on 0863311996 if you have any questions about the school. Mr Fagan is in Tallaght CNS every Tuesday. 

Communication with Parents

There are regular updates sent to parents and guardians from the school, through a combination of emails, notes/newsletters and text messages. Please check your child’s schoolbag regularly as it might contain important notes or consent forms.

The school also uses a text message service to inform parents/guardians of upcoming events and emergency closures etc. Please ensure that the school has one current mobile phone number at all times to ensure that you receive these important messages. If you change that number, please inform the school secretary immediately.

Please do not hesitate to approach the teacher if you are anxious about an issue relating to your child. However, if you wish to have a more detailed discussion please make an appointment through the school secretary.
