Following advice from police and feedback from parents and staff; I am sorry to inform you that we will be unable to open the school tomorrow for safety reasons.
Although main roads are clear, many families and staff would not be able to access main roads safely, as many estate and back roads have not be cleared and are covered with drift snow. Some areas are also still experiencing heavy snowfall.
The safety of staff and families is paramount and while we ask families and staff to make their own decision before setting off, feel that some may attempt the journey when the conditions are not safe. Many people are not used to driving in the snow or have vehicles unsuited to the conditions.
I again apologise for the inconvenience that this will no doubt cause, closing the school is always a last resort. We look forward to seeing you all on Friday and hearing all about your snow adventures.
Thank you to all families for your support and to those of you who have contributed information about the conditions where they live.
