Thank you for helping us to stay open. As a school, we have made a pledge to parents that we will remain open wherever possible. I am sorry if your personal circumstances were such that this has not helped you today and you, as I, had a difficult journey. The decision lies with you and your assessment of the risk. We do also want to say that we appreciate those staff and parents who have battled in and congratulate you all on your tenacity!! The general feedback has been that most parents have been pleased that we stayed open, and that their child has had a morning in school.
We genuinely believe that we are providing a service to parents and their children and are therefore under obligation to open. We then review the situation periodically and make a decision based on what we know about the weather forecast, road conditions and public transport.
Best wishes from all the staff,
Martine Sinker Head teacher
