St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Hello Parents/Carers! Please remember, if you are a Key Worker and need emergency child care because you have been called to the frontline and there is no one else who can look after your child, then ring Mrs Naylor or Mrs Thompson to discuss the possibility of a place. We should only be your last resort. School is closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Thank you for the many uplifting emails I have received which I will be passing onto the staff! Please read my message in the left column below and keep checking this over the holidays as I will be tweaking it!

ADVERSE WEATHER POLICY

 

The safety of our school community is paramount. This policy will guide you in what to do should the weather deteriorate to an extent that safety is compromised.

If this turns out to be the case, please follow the following instructions.

If the weather deteriorates quickly during the day:

  • Please come and collect your child early if you can – this would help us
  • If possible, bring any additional clothing/footwear your child may need
  • We will send a text to all parents/carers to inform you if school will be closing
  • We will post updates on the website
  • Please assume that any after school activity is cancelled and collect your child promptly at home time

 

If snow falls overnight or severe snow conditions prevail:

  • Check the school website homepage for updates – they will scroll across the page
  • Listen to Pulse Radio or Radio Leeds for further information
  • Do not drop your child off at school without first establishing that school will be opening

 

It is important to remember that many staff will have to travel considerable distances, and may be advised not to make the journey to school in these circumstances. We will endeavour to have someone here, but it is essential that you check before you leave your child on site.

Please remember that in times of severe weather conditions the internet may be affected and we may not be able to contact you by text or access the website. If you are concerned about the deteriorating weather please come and collect your child as soon as you safely can.

A member of staff will stay in school until all children are collected.

 

THIS POLICY HAS BEEN AGREED BY STAFF AND GOVERNORS
