Sadly, due to the weather conditions, we had to make the decision at 7.30am, in conjunction with the Chair of Governors, that we had to close today. A number of staff made it in despite the terrible conditions, but we could not operate with the skeleton staff we had available. It wasn’t fair to ask staff to put their safety at risk in order to get to school. The health and safety of pupils and staff are always our first priority.
It’s the first time in 5 years we’ve had a complete closure, and hopefully, there won’t be another for 5 more!
