Adverse Weather Policy

Adverse Weather Policy

Keeping You Informed

November 2017
 
Dear Parent/Guardian   
 
We are beginning to experience the poor weather conditions that present themselves in the winter months and therefore we would like to take this opportunity to  reissue our school policy in relation to adverse weather conditions.  
 
Our policy is that the school will open on all normal school days even when some poor road conditions exist. In the event of extreme adverse weather where a decision to close the school may have to be taken parents will be notified by our text service and information will also be placed on our Facebook page and our school website. I would ask you to please read the attached policy which contains more detailed advice.
 
May I take this opportunity, in the interest of the health and safety of our students, to draw your attention to our parking advice in particular at this time of year when ice /slippy conditions are more prevalent.
 
·        Use the lower car at all times to drop off and pick up students
·        Parking and/or stopping briefly on the roundabout poses a health and safety risk and therefore should be avoided at all times
·        Use the roundabout safely driving in a clockwise direction
·        Consider picking up students at 3.25pm/3.30pm to allow the bulk of the buses /traffic to move safely away
 
Thank you for your continued support
