If school transport is not running please do not take your child(ren) to school yourself unless it is safe for you to do so. If you do take your child(ren) to school, you must also be able to collect them at the end of the day or in the event that the school has to close early due to deteriorating weather conditions”

Appropriate Clothing

As we move into colder weather and winter months can we reinforce that the children come to school with coats, outdoor shoes and gloves, hats and scarves.   If the weather is heavy and sustained the children will be taken in before 9.00am and kept in over break and lunch.  However where possible and when the weather is lighter and intermittent the children will go outside for fresh air and exercise.  We have a lot of areas where the children can and will get wet and messy on occasion so warm outdoor clothing is essential as well as boots or heavy duty shoes that can be changed. Consideration of a set of spare clothes may be appropriate, we appreciate your support with this.
