Bad Weather/Snow Routine

In the event of cold/bad/wet weather, please ensure your child has a suitable coat, hat, scarf, gloves so that they will keep warm and dry at playtime, (wellies are great with a change of footwear/trousers for inside). Children will only be allowed to play out in the snow if they have appropriate clothing and footwear.

Please make sure everything is named

In the event of a possible school closure, please check the front page of our website.

Every effort will be made to both update the website and send a text message and email out to all parents at the earliest opportunity. A decision will be made by 8.20am about any closures, allowing time for staff to attempt to get to school and parents time to make alternative arrangements.

If we have to make a decision to send children home due to adverse weather conditions then a text message and email will be sent out, please make sure your contact details that are held in school are up to date.

Closing school and sending children home, will only happen in extreme circumstances and we will endeavour to keep the school open at all times.
