Headteacher Update for Bad Weather

In the event of bad weather it is my intention to keep the school open so the children do not miss any learning. However, depending on the outcome of my Risk Assessment, the sites may close earlier in the event of heavy snow to ensure all can get home safely.

East Street collection may be between 2.30 – 2.45pm and Boston Avenue between 2.45 – 3pm.

Children will not receive late marks on a snow day so please make every endeavour to get them to school.

You will be kept updated with ParentMail or by our text service by 7.30am if there has been snow. 

Please ensure the office have your current mobile number and email address. 

 

Yours sincerely,

Mr N Booth, Headteacher
