As part of our Health and Safety requirements, we have included a snow plan. We have a duty to ensure that we have the correct ratio of teachers to children. Where we cannot guarantee this we may be placed in the unfortunate position of having to close the school for the day. Our decision will be based on the best evidence available at 06.30 and particularly that we are able to get enough staff to school to ensure safety. We shall post details on the school website – front page in big text if the school is closed and we shall do this by 07.30. We shall also inform by texts, also by 06.45. Once this decision is made, it shall remain in place, even if there is a thaw during the day. In terms of when the school is open but icy, please follow this link to our statutory snow map of safe paths in school.
