Snowy Weather, 3rd February 2015
Wasn't it beautiful this morning with a light dusting of snow on everything? We are not expecting to have any heavy snowfalls this week, but it will be bitterly cold, so please make sure your child wears a nice warm coat (hat and gloves may also be a good idea!).
We thought it may be an opportune time to remind you of our policy regarding extreme weather conditions:
If there has been a large snowfall overnight, a decision will be made by 8.00am if we need to remain closed - we need to ensure the roads and pathways in and around the school site are safe to use, and enough staff members are able to get in to enable us to open (many staff do not live within walking distance).
We will post a message here if we are closed, and this information will also be on the B&NES website - http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/school-closures.
It is unusual for the school to be closed due to snowfall; the main roads to school are usually well-gritted and enable staff and pupils to get here. We will only close the school in exceptional circumstances, if it is not safe for children to be on site due to very snowy/icy conditions, or if a large number of staff are unable to come in.
If school is open we expect all children to attend as normal.
