Adverse Weather Conditions Update

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Adverse Weather Conditions

 

The school’s Senior Leadership Team have met today to review the current forecast, including the amber warning issued by the MET Office for the South West region.

 

Overnight temperatures are expected to fall to -5 degrees, rising to -3 degrees at 9.00am tomorrow morning.  In addition, an amber weather warning is in place forecasting heavy snow between 12.00pm and 3.00pm tomorrow.  Whilst we will monitor this throughout the day and overnight, we anticipate that the school may have to close tomorrow.  We are informing you now to give you ample warning, as it is possible that staff and students who travel in to school from all over the South of England, may not be able to get into school.  It is paramount that we think about the safety of staff, parents and students travelling to and from school.

 

We will be placing work for students on Show My Homework for them to complete in the event of a school closure.

 

In the event of the school closing, we will notify everyone via Schoolcomms, our Facebook page, Twitter, the school website and there will be a notice on https://www.hants.gov.uk/education/schoolclosures/

 

We appreciate your understanding in this matter and want to be open and transparent with parents at this moment in time.  We will keep you informed of developments throughout the day.

 

The site team will be gritting as much as possible early in the morning, but the exposure of both sites does cause a significant ice risk.

 

Yours sincerely

Krista Dawkins
