School Closure 5th December Dear All After much consideration, we have taken the decision to close the school tomorrow. The weather forecast for tomorrow looks better than todays, however we are concerned about families and staff travelling to school in the morning. In many areas, the roads remain unsafe and it looks likely there will still be considerable disruption to travel because of the amount of water on the roads and further potential flooding. We wanted to make a decision as soon as possible so everyone can plan in advance, rather than waiting until tomorrow to do so. Thank you for your support and understanding in making this decision. We will update you again tomorrow but are looking to reopen on Wednesday.
