In the event of extreme inclement weather, such as when heavy falls of snow develop overnight and continue into the following day or extreme icy conditions occur, parents should take the following advice about the possibility of school closure. Whenever possible school will remain open. However, we have to consider the safety of all our children and staff, some of whom travel a distance into school each day.
Should the need arise, in severe weather, a decision will be made by 7.30 am if the school is to be closed. A text message alert will be sent informing you of school closure and a notice put on the school website. The local radio station (Hereford and Worcester 94.7) will also be informed.
Should heavy snow occur during the day, school will remain open until the end of the normal school day, there are enough staff who live locally who can cover supervision. If you are concerned about getting your child home, you are welcome to collect your child earlier. In this situation, it has to be a personal decision depending on your own circumstances. Remember – common sense prevails.
