School Closure

1 March 2018 (by Tracy)

School Closed - Friday 2 March

After much deliberation, school will remain closed Friday 2 March. Staff have been in contact with one another throughout today, continually assessing the condition of the roads, which we predict will be even more treacherous in the morning following the freezing temperatures forecast overnight. We are unable to guarantee that enough staff will be able to get to school to ensure adequate supervision of our children, due to road conditions and their journeys, of which some are lengthy. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused but we hope that by notifying parents this evening, rather than making a decision in the morning, this will allow parents and carers more time to make childcare arrangements if necessary. Thank you for your continued support. The decision to close due to adverse weather conditions is always a difficult one, but the safety of our children and staff is always paramount. We hope that you have been making the most of the snow and are very hopeful that normal service will resume on Monday 5 March.
