School closure

In the event of snow/bad weather the decision to close the school will be made purely on safety grounds: the school site is safe for the children and that there are sufficient staff in school to ensure the safety of the children.

All reasonable steps will be taken to notify parents in advance.  Where there is some doubt about the situation for the next working day, parents are advised to listen to local radio stations.  The following radio stations will broadcast the list of schools that are closed.

The following radio stations are likely to have the best local information:

BBC BERKSHIRE  /  HEART FM  /  READING 107

We will also post regularly updated information here on the website.
