Dear parents and carers.
Met Office are warning of icy conditions on untreated surfaces, pavements and cycle paths tomorrow until 10am. Whilst snow is always a hazard, it is ice that is the more pressing concern on most occasions.
As a result, the school will not open until 10:15am (when the Met Office warning is scheduled to end) for those children of critical workers. This will allow Mr Hill and I the opportunity to clear and re grit any icy pathways on school site and will ensure that staff have ample time to travel.
As always, parents are advised to consider their own safety and whether or not they deem it safe to travel to school.
School opening remains subject to staff being able to safely travel to and from their homes. Should staff numbers not meet the safety requirements on site, a decision may still be required to close the school to all. If this is the case, or if conditions change significantly, parents will be informed as soon as possible. I do not anticipate this will be necessary, but it is not a guarantee.
