School Closure - Friday 18th February 2022

Dear Parents and Carers 

School Closure – Friday 18th February 

The school will be closed today because of the amber weather warning that is in place for our region.  

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but the Met Office’s warning for our region states that ‘there is a good chance that flying debris could result in a danger to life’. As there has been no change in this status, we have no choice but to close the school to protect children, parents and staff as it is unsafe to travel to the school site.  

Yesterday evening, teachers started to make preparations to switch today’s lessons to online learning via Google Classrooms. Work for children should be online by 10.00 a.m. but may well be posted before that.  

We are well aware that parents and carers have had little warning or time to prepare for the closure. In light of this short notice and the pressure that home learning can place on parents, teachers will predominantly set lessons that are easier to manage e.g. interactive resources, worksheets and video lessons.  

Furthermore, please do not worry if your child is not able to complete all of the lessons set. No doubt for many this will be a difficult day trying to balance work and looking after children, and we do not want to add to those pressures.  

The school office will not be open today for obvious reasons. I would like to apologise in advance for any difficulties this causes particularly if you experience login issues with Google Classroom which, history would teach us, is inevitable.  

I hope you all have a safe day and enjoy a good half-term holiday. 

Kind regards 

Gareth Simons
