Weather Warning – Possible Snow

Dear Parents/Carers,

The local weather forecast for this evening suggests that we should expect snow in the north of the county.  At this stage we intend to run Year 8 Parents’ Evening as normal.  I have, however, asked staff to keep to time with the intention that the evening be completed by 7.30pm prompt.

I will review the weather conditions throughout the day and evening and update parents if the need arises.  If conditions deteriorate in the north of the county, I will send staff home who live in those areas.

Please keep an eye on the school website for any updates.  We will also send out a schoolcomms to those parents who have access.

Krista Dawkins, Headteacher
