Severe Weather Advice

INFORMATION TO PARENTS AND STAFF

Any decision will be made on the basis of the risk to pupil safety, either because of physical conditions (for example, if the heating fails) or because we do not have enough staff to carry out our duty of care (for example, because of transport disruption or due regard for staff health and safety).

 In these circumstances we may take the following actions:

  • open school later than normal
  • end the school day earlier than normal
  • open the school only for some pupils
  • close the school (as a last resort).

If we have to take any of these actions, we will notify families in the following ways:

 

 

             Please avoid phoning the school to check if we are open.

  

 

TRAVEL TO SCHOOL

If school is open but severe weather or transport disruption prevents your children getting to school, please let us know by phone or email. In such cases always consider safety first; we would rather pupils arrived late than were absent for the whole day.

 

CLEARING/GRITTING/SALTING

(All gritting/clearing is confined to the school’s boundaries)

Routes to be cleared for safe access to school:

  • Direct pathway from two front gates to KS1 corridor and main entrance
  • Area outside hall door
  • Pathway to kitchen and boiler room
