Our School Prayer

Dear Lord,

Please bless us all,

Help us to care for one another and to forgive one another,

To play and work well together,

Help us to be thankful and always to remember the love of Christ and spread his love wherever we go.

Amen


Oh No, Snow!

Decision Making

Staying open or closing the school is a huge decision to make as it impacts on so many different things. As always the decision is based on;

  • Is it safe for the children to get to and stay at school?
  • Is it safe for all staff to travel to and from school?
  • Can we get enough staff to school safely to educate the children, not just child mind for the day?
  • In the event of snow it could be that Kingswood catering are unable to reach us and children would be required to bring in a packed lunch
Although it would not be ideal, it is possible that we could 'part open'. This means that school would be open for specific classes only, (depending on which staff could safely get in).

Information Sharing

In the event of any snow/adverse weather we will share information as widely as possible through:

We will endeavour to make a decision regarding whether to open as early as possible, ideally by 7:15am.
Please DO NOT ring the school office to see if we are open, (any calls to the office will hinder the staff at an incredibly busy time). If none of the methods above say that we are closed, then we will be open!

School Access Start of School Day

At all times, all attempts will be made clear the car park, playground and pathways of snow. Please do take care within these areas. Help always appreciated to remove snow/grit etc.

School Access End of School Day/Clubs

During the day we will endeavour to clear, and make safe, more of the site.
If we are closed then all clubs, including CSD/breakfast will also be cancelled. If we are open, then a decision regarding clubs will be made on the day and you will be notified accordingly.

If we are open it is likely that the children will be given an opportunity to play outside. They will only be allowed to do this if they have appropriate clothing for the weather. This includes wellington boots or sensible waterproof outdoor shoes as we would want their school shoes to be kept dry for indoor use. Children without suitable clothing will not be allowed to join the fun. Children will also be reminded of ‘sensible’ play.

This probably all seems a little over the top, but we feel it is better to be prepared and that everyone has a clear understanding of the plan.
