Dear Parents/ Carers,
Every year, at this time, we ask you to secure your severe weather or emergency closure arrangements. Please ensure that - if the school needs to close with short notice – you have alternative provision for your children.
We ask all parents to be on our Bromcom system so that we can text you in the event of closure. If you have changed numbers recently, you may not receive important alert texts. We will also advise parents on our school website https://www.ewp-tkat.org/ and facebook page if the school is closed due to the weather.
The school will stay open unless circumstances dictate that the safety of children or staff will be compromised.
In the case of snow and ice -The Head Teacher will make a daily risk assessment of the safety of the school site and road conditions. Several of our staff live some distance from the school and may not be able to get in if road conditions are treacherous.
If the school stays open, staff and parents are expected to make every effort to get to school. Such journeys are regarded as ‘necessary’ by emergency services. A pathway will be cleared and children and parents should stay on gritted areas.
Thank you for your support in this matter.
