St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Hello Parents, Carers and Children! We are in the last half term of the school year. It has been a very challenging time for us all recently and I know I do not need to tell you how myself and the staff long for the day we can all be together and school life returns to normal. Remember to just do what you can when you can. You are doing a brilliant job! As always you can email your child's teacher or myself with any concerns you have. We want to do all we can to support you. We are here for you. The message from the Government is still to keep social distancing measures in place, regular hand washing and vigilance. Stay safe and stay strong! Mrs Hodges

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
