We are aiming to arrive at school at 4.45pm. If there are any delays, we will let you know via the blog.
See you all soon!
Hedgehogs were treated to a Persian New Year celebration by Daniel and Delan and their parents. We learned about the customs, tried traditional sweets and learned to say some Farsi words. Thank you to the Koushkani family for organising this.
To avoid the worst of the potentially dangerous conditions later today we have taken the decision to close the school early. This is in line with other local schools. Please collect your child at 1.15 from their classroom. They will have eaten their lunch as usual. WASPs will also be closed today.
Considering all the information we have available this action is being taken for the safety of children, parents, carers and staff. I would like to add that although we aim to avoid the temperature drop later this afternoon the conditions on the roads and in the car park remain dangerous even now, so please be especially cautious when you collect.
The forecast seems to be very different depending on which forecasting service you use but one thing that is for certain is that temperatures and the wind will continue to be very, very cold. We will monitor the situation closely and let you know of any changes to school opening tomorrow as soon as possible. If we are open please ensure the children are wrapped up warm even if they are in World Book Day costumes.
