Snow and Bad Weather Procedures
In the event of severe snow or bad weather, we may occasionally have to close school. This will be an absolutely last resort and should we feel this is necessary, we shall endeavour to make any decisions on the closure of the school by 7.30am.
In the event of closure we will send a group text to the first contact for all children. We will also put a note on the rolling banner of our school website.
In the event of heavy snow fall during the school day that causes us to be concerned about children’s welfare in relation to returning home, we will again text for immediate collection, update our schoool website and inform the local radio stations mentioned above.
If school remains open which is always our aim, it is likely that when there is snow or ice, Reception children will need to use their usual classroom door at the beginning of the day and Year One and Two enter through the main school office at the beginning of the day. All children are likely to be collected from the school hall using the Game On gate at the end of the day. This is so we can make sure both our children and parents are as safe as possible at all times.
It is always difficult to make the right decision due to the unpredictability of the weather, we will aim to do this as swiftly as we can. Please rest assured that any decisions taken will be based around ensuring that your children are kept as safe as possible.
Please note that if the school is closed, Game On will also not offer before and after school care.
