Extreme Weather Provision

In the event of extreme weather (eg heavy snowfall), the Headteacher and Chair of Governors have to make a decision about whether the school should open. This decision is based on information from the immediate locality of the school. The school will open if this is feasible, giving due regard to health and safety of parents, children and staff.

Where a decision is made to close the school, this will be shown clearly on the homepage of the school website, and on the diary date for that day. The Headteacher also has to notify Somerset, who will release the information via radio stations:

BBC Somerset Sound
99.5 FM

107.8 FM

Heart FM  
102.6 FM
97.1 FM
96.5 FM

Breeze FM
108 FM
102.4 FM
107.4 FM

If school is open, it is important that children wear appropriate clothing:

Warm coat, trousers, suitable footwear, hat, scarf, gloves. Children will only be allowed out to break if they have appropriate footwear in school, so please make sure your child wears welly boots or walking boots (and brings indoor shoes), to keep their feet dry and warm. 

Many of our teaching staff live some distance from school. We may need to merge classes if staff are unable to reach school from where they live.
