RASC was established in 2007 by the Coordinator who was a registered Primary school teacher.

The RASC staff team are committed to giving friendly, individual attention to the children in a safe, positive environment.

A core group of regular children and the team of stable, committed staff provide consistency and stability in the programme.

Do your work demands and commitments create the need for quality child care?

Simply register and enrol with RASC for the term and your child will be well cared for under careful supervision.

Health and Safety


A number of students in our school suffer from food allergies and procedures have been put in place to assist these children. We require children to eat their food in certain areas and to wash their hands before and after eating. Epipens are kept in classrooms and in the First Aid cupboard. Information is displayed on wall charts in the classroom and office.


All breakages of furniture, fittings or buildings are to be investigated. School policy is for students to take responsibility for their actions and to make appropriate restitution for preventable damage.


Cars are not to be driven into school grounds during the school day especially when children are arriving and leaving school. This is in the interest of safety and space for children.


It is extremely important that parents/caregivers and staff provide the school with up to date contact phone numbers for themselves and at least one other person.


Lost property is stored in the alcove at the end of the corridor. Items are displayed at the end of each term.


Every two years it is usual for our school to carry out a full evacuation to help ensure that we are prepared for a major emergency.


  • Fire Drill: The signal for emergency evacuation is continuous ringing of the bell.
  • The assembly area is on the sealed area in front of the hall. To evacuate rooms, use the nearest exit door and thereafter the safest route to the assembly area.
  • Office staff check medical room/ toilets/ library.
  • Teachers accompany students
  • Attendance registers are to be taken.
  • Since the first requirement is to know if anyone (rather than who) is missing a quick accurate check on number should be made. Report to the Principal or DP ‘All present’ or number missing as quickly as possible.
  • DOUBLE check by calling the roll.
  • Earthquake: In a ‘shake’ teachers are to instruct students to crouch under desks/ cover heads with hands. When situation considered safe, staff and students move to assembly area. The Office Manager will remove Admission Registers and contact any service required.


During summer months (usually the 1st and 4th terms) all pupils are to wear sun hats when they take part in outside activities.
