To all Parents/Carers Dear Parent/Carer

School Closure Due to Severe Weather

In the event of severe weather, especially heavy snow, I will conduct a risk assessment of the safety of the site and then consult with the chair of governors before making any decision to close the school for the day.

We always hope to avoid that scenario but the health and safety of our students and staff must be weighed against any inconvenience caused by closure. If a decision is taken to close the school due to severe weather an announcement will be posted on the website before 7.00 am on the morning of closure.

You can also monitor the situation across all schools in B&NES at: http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/school-closures

The webpage on the Council website is updated by the school directly which guarantees that you are viewing the most recent information available.

We would ask that you please consult the website in the first instance to avoid high volumes of telephone enquiries.

Yours faithfully

A Cusack

Headmistress
