School Closures

Severe Weather Closure

In the event of heavy snow or severe weather it may be necessary to close the school. If this should occur, local radio stations BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and Heart 103 will be informed by 8.00a.m. It is possible that staff will be unable to get into school to answer the phone so tuning into the radio may be your only way of finding out of the closure. You can also log onto the Cambridgeshire County Council Website for up to date information: http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/education/schools/schoolclosure

Please only call the school if you do not have access to radio or Internet and do not phone the school before 8.00a.m. Also pupils may need to return home earlier than normal if the school has to close early in the interests of pupil safety. It would be helpful if parents could ensure that their children know what they may have to do in such a situation, or if it is likely that parents may be delayed in traffic due to weather conditions.

We shall endeavour to open throughout. This being so, please ensure your child is dressed suitably to cope with the weather conditions. It is advisable that all children bring a change of footwear. Being outside in the snow, either walking to school or at playtimes will mean wet shoes so Wellingtons may be preferable. Children will need indoor shoes that are not their PE shoes. If the temperature is extremely low or heavy snow falling then naturally an indoor play will be called for. At all other times playtimes will continue as usual so children will need to wrap up warmly.
