Bad weather procedures

We try our utmost to keep our school open when it snows but sometimes, for health and safety or staffing reasons, we have to close.

The Headteacher will make the decision about closing the school and the following system will operate around 7.30am:

  • An announcement will be placed on the school website.
  • A message will be posted on our school Facebook page.
  • A text message will be sent to parents to say that school is closed.
  • Announcements will be made on BBC Wiltshire radio and Heart FM.

We will only make announcements if we are going to close

Areas to be gritted 

  • A pathway from main school gate to the playground 
  • Staff car park

Children will enter through the main reception area if it is deemed too icy for them to enter the playground.
