Winter Weather Plan
Wednesday, 27th November 2013
When there is severe snow/icy conditions parts of the school yards/grounds will be cleared and treated with grit/salt; signage will be provided when treatment has taken place and will give details of the last treatment times. It is impossible to treat every surface so please take extra care around the school.
The school has procedures in place in case it is necessary for the school to close. Closing the school is always a last resort but if it is unavoidable, a decision will be made by 8am
We will inform parents of any unexpected closures, as follows:
- A text will be sent to parents
- A note will be added to the front page of the school website.
- STAR radio station (102.8fm; 106.8fm) will be notified
- The Durham County Council website (www.durham.gov.uk.)
School closures that are known in advance, such as polling days, will be notified to parents with as much notice as possible. We will do this by letter, on the school website and via the text messaging service.
