School Closed Friday February 1st

1 February 2019

Dear Parents & Carers

IMPORTANT MESSAGE – SERIOUS WEATHER CONDITIONS

Following further travel and weather forecast information I have, in the interests of student and staff safety, made the decision to close St Peter’s Church of England VA School on Friday 1stFebruary 2019.  Yesterday as a result of the weather conditions, some staff who live a distance away were sent home for reasons of safety.   I cannot guarantee that enough staff will be able to travel safely to and from school on Friday 1stFebruary and am therefore very concerned that we will not have safe staffing ratios and high quality learning experiences.  I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

The traffic situation means there is likely to be disruption of public transport, delays on roads, vehicles stranded and disruption to power supply.

Please keep an eye on our website, facebook and twitter feeds as well as our email communications for further updates.

In the meantime students are asked to enjoy the snow safely and ensure that all homeworks are done and all responses to feedback in books are up to date in all subjects.

The decision to close the school is never taken lightly and I’m sure that you will understand that safety of students and staff must take priority.  I now have enough information to suggest that this will be compromised if the school is open and so I am informing you of the decision to close the school at the earliest possible time.

Yours sincerely

Phil Randall

Headteacher
