Snow Procedures


Please note the following:


I would like to remind parents of our procedures for closure in the event of snow.  Naturally, we make every effort to keep the school open, although sometimes the condition of the site and the availability of staff make it impossible to operate safely.


Communication takes place via the school website, an all school email,  the TheSchoolApp and Classlist.  Please do not telephone the school; this would block telephone lines and we are likely to be working with a skeleton staff first thing in the morning.


There are three status categories:


RED  -  the school is closed


GREEN  -  school is open and operating entirely normally


AMBER  (AMBER) -  there will be some amendments to normal arrangements;  i.e. a later start to allow staff and parents time to travel.  Start time will be posted on the school website and communicated to class parents.


Snow Clearance


If there is heavy snow on the ground and forecasts show that no more snow is expected we will clear our school sites as soon as possible. We will need support to do this so a representative from the school will contact the Parent Class Reps who will initiate a contact chain for each class asking for help. We will need adult help at this time and we ask that no children are on site so that we are able to work quickly and effectively.
