    Snow Procedures

    In the event of snow parents are asked to follow the procedures below: • If school is to remain open, this will posted on the website as soon as the decision is taken, usually before 7.30am. • Will I be advised if school is closed? A text message will be sent to the first contact of every child in school. In addition, the website will be updated. This will happen as soon as the decision is taken to close, usually before 7.30am Please make sure school have your up to date mobile number at all times. • Do I need to contact school? If you decide not to bring your child to school please let us know as soon as you can, otherwise there is no need to contact us. The decision as to whether it is safe to come in to school is entirely up to you. • Will after school clubs be cancelled? Yes. Parents will be notified but as a rule, after school clubs will not go ahead in the event of snow. • When should I collect my child? Please collect your child at normal time unless we ask you to collect them earlier – usually by a notice on the website or a text. If you are delayed in collecting your child please advise the office as soon as possible. A member of staff will remain in school with any children who have not been collected until a parent arrives. • Impact on the school day When school remains open on a snowy day, we may not have a full complement of staff and so children may be moved from their usual class. Please be assured that children will still be taught appropriate lessons for their level.
