Severe Weather Information

Severe Snow/Ice Plan for Parents and Families 


As we enter winter and start to have the first flurry of snow it is important that your 

child is sent into school ready with appropriate warm coats, hats and gloves. Extreme bad weather can cause widespread and prolonged disruption. Schools are often 

affected and it can be difficult to maintain an education service. 


As a fundamental principle every effort must be made to keep schools open, even if 

only limited numbers of pupils can attend. However schools may close due to ‘unavoidable’ circumstances. Those circumstances being that it is no longer safe for staff or pupils to be onsite. 

We recognise that it is important our school remains open so parents are able to work and pupils can continue to learn. We will make every effort to prepare for severe snow/ice this winter by gritting pathways, clearing access points etc.
