SEVERE WEATHER PROCEDURES
In severe weather the school will either open as normal, close for the day or close early.
Open as Normal
The school will open as normal provided that either the Headteacher, or Deputy Head Teacher and a minimum complement of staff can be on the premises by 8.30 a.m. and that there are no other problems.
If weather conditions are severe the school will be closed for the day.
If the weather deteriorates during the school day, parents will be informed that they may collect their children early. Please ensure emergency contact information is up to date at school.
HOW WILL PARENTS BE ABLE TO FIND OUT WHAT DECISION THE SCHOOL HAS MADE IN THE CASE OF SEVERE WEATHER?
I assure you every effort will be made to keep the school open in bad weather but, as I am sure you will appreciate, pupil and staff safety must be our priority in severe conditions.
In icy conditions the path inside the school gates will be gritted and access to school for all will be via the side blue door to the right of the gate leading into the main playground. The playground will be out of bounds during icy conditions. Please ensure you take care at all times and bear in mind the council do not grit the pathways outside the school gates.
