“Schools should, wherever possible, stay open in severe weather. They play a key role in their communities and by staying open help both their pupils and parents.” – Department for Education
During the winter months there is always the possibility of snow and ice, which can cause widespread and prolonged disruption. Schools are often affected and while we will make every effort to keep the school open there may be times when the school may close due to ‘unavoidable’ circumstances.
We recognise that it is important that our school remains open so parents are able to work and pupils can continue to learn, and we will make every effort to prepare for snow/ice this winter by e.g. gritting pathways
How will we let you me know if the school is closed?
If we do experience severe snow/ice resulting in hazardous conditions, Mrs Walker may have to take the decision to close the school. Once this decision has been made we will notify parents in a variety of ways.
