In the event of incidents such as adverse weather, every attempt will be made to keep the school open in order to minimise disruption to teaching & learning. However, the prime objective will be the health and safety of pupils, staff, parents/carers. Under such circumstances we will carry out a risk assessment, taking account of the conditions on site to ascertain if it is safe to keep the school open.
In the unlikely event of the school having to close due to adverse weather, a decision will be made by 7:00am. If we are aware in advance of this time, we will inform you as soon as a decision has been made. We will inform parents in the following ways:
If we are not closed, please ensure your children are wearing warm clothing – gloves, hats, scarves, wellies and even extra socks! School shoes are also needed.
Many thanks for your support in helping the school remain open during periods of severe snow/ice.
