School Closure – Red Weather Warning
Dear Parents / Carers,
Following MET Office guidance we have taken the decision to close school tomorrow, Friday 18th February 2022. This is due to the impending storm which now has a RED warning, meaning there is risk to life.
A Red Weather Warning poses the dangers of:
-Flying debris resulting in danger to life.
-Damage to buildings and homes, with roofs blown of and power lines brought down.
-Uprooted trees are likely.
-Roads, bridges and railway lines closed, with delays and cancellations to bus, train, ferry services and flights.
-Power cuts affecting other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
Due to the unpredictability of all of these dangers, we have taken the decision to close the school tomorrow.
This will be a closure day and no online learning will be offered, again due to the unknown situation regarding for staff and yourselves regarding power cuts, thus affecting internet accessibility.
I know this decision places challenges on you to arrange childcare for tomorrow and apologize for the inconvenience, but I know you will understand and agree safety of all our school community has to be the priority.
Please take care everyone, stay safe, and have a lovely half-term holiday and we will see all of you back on Monday 28th February.
Thank you all for your understanding,
Mrs L Jones
