Due to the deteriorating weather conditions this evening and the forecast for more snow through the night, the difficult decision has been taken to close school on Thursday.
I wanted you to have as much notice as possible in order to give you time to put any arrangements you may need to make in place.
This wasn't a decision that was taken lightly, but I have to prioritise the safety of the children, parents and staff. There has been significant snowfall already in the past few hours and the forecasts have been accurate so far. On that basis, conditions are likely to be much worse than they were this morning and the surrounding roads very dangerous.
Thank you once again for your understanding and we will continue to keep you updated.
