School Closures (bad weather)
16th Jan 2015
Just in case...
In the event of extreme weather we will endeavour to keep the school open. However there may be occasions where this is not possible, e.g. if access to the site is not safe or if there are major problems with heating or sanitation. Many staff live outside of the village and it may not be possible for them to get to school safely. If we are not able to guarantee enough staff – including first aiders, etc. to ensure a safe environment, we also may have to close the school.
If this happens we will make the decision as early as possible and inform parents by text and by putting a message on the website homepage. Please do not try and phone the school for information as there may not be anyone on site to answer. We will inform the local radio stations but they are often inundated by calls and cannot always update their message boards quickly.
If the school is closed due to snow we would obviously like to get the school open as soon as possible. If anyone was able to come and help clear paths on the playground and clear the car park this would be much appreciated. Look out on the website for details.
School meals will be cancelled for the day and payments will be transferred.
If we are open during snowy periods we advise children to come with wellies, warm clothes and a change of shoes so we can get out and enjoy the snow at break times.
