Friday 2nd March
School Closure Christchurch Junior School & Christchurch Infant School
Due to severe weather conditions, both the Infants and the Junior School will be closed tomorrow.
The Headteachers of both schools met this afternoon and we have taken into account:
- the amber warning of snow and ice predicted by the BBC and the Met Office from 14.00 on Thursday until 8.00 on Friday morning
- the forecast of more heavy snow settling on freezing ground increasing the risk of icy conditions
- likely problems with access to and from the school
- predicted poor travelling conditions to and from the schools by staff and families
- our ability to offer safe supervision with reduced staffing
We have not taken this decision lightly but have made it in the best interest of the children’s safety.
Keep warm and safe!
