Bad Weather Arrangements

When there is snow falling across the country it is time to make preparations in school. As always, we will keep school open if at all possible. In the unlikely event that we need to close we will make a decision as early possible and put closure notices on the school website, send emails to those parents signed up to Parentmail and will contact local media too.

Should there be very bad weather conditions we will use new drop off and collection arrangements.

Drop off in the morning:
   ALL children will be dropped off and enter school through the main entrance (by the office).
   Staff will be on duty on this entrance from 8.45am and will ensure that children reach their classroom safely.
   Normal start times apply.
   The gate opposite the main entrance will be the only gate opened. ALL other gates will be kept locked.

Collection in the afternoon:
   The gate opposite the main entrance will be the only gate opened. ALL other gates will be kept locked.
   ALL parents and carers will be asked to come into school through the main entrance to collect their child from the classroom.
   Parents and carers will be able to collect children between 3pm and 3.45pm.

We hope that this system will prove successful and ensure that everyone can safely come onto the school site to drop off and collect their child. We will send out email communications and keep our website updated to keep you informed of any changes to routines and systems.
