Kinsale Infant School


Pastoral Support

Life as a parent or carer is not always easy. We understand that sometimes you may need some help, guidance or even just a sympathetic ear to really listen.
My role in school is to not only be here for our children but also the families, supporting you with any concerns or worries both inside and outside of school.

I won’t always have all the answers, but we can work together to find them.

I am available by phone and email. I will be holding regular drop session Wednesday 2.50pm-3.10pm on Wednesdays. No appointment necessary, just come through the office.

There is also bookable appointments available by emailing the office

Always here if you need me.
