Severe Winter Weather Procedures

It is widely expected that towards the end of this week, we will continue to have very cold weather and possibly disruptive snow.  As ever our principle is to remain open as usual and all is in place to grit and make the site as safe as possible.  Should there be a need to consider any changes to this, we will communicate using the procedure linked below.  In preparation for the cold weather please would you ensure your son or daughter wears footwear that is appropriate for the conditions.


The decision for closure before school opens will be made as early as possible. If the decision is made to close the site during the school day, this will be communicated using the same process. If you are unable to collect your child during the school day or they are unable to travel home independently, please prepare an alternative plan with an agreed place that they can stay until you are able to meet them.  This will ensure that your child is able to leave the site promptly for their own safety.


In conclusion, please assume that the school is open unless communication is received regarding a planned closure.


Thank you for your continuing support.
