We make every effort to maintain a full educational service, but on some occasions circumstances arise which lead to disruption. Schools may be affected by, for example, severe weather conditions, dislocation of transport, power failures or difficulties of fuel supply. In such cases we shall do all we can to let you know about the details of closure or re-opening. We shall keep you in touch by using letters, notices in local shops and community centres, announcements in local churches and announcements in the press and on local radio.
Wet Weather Arrangements
All children can enter the building from 8:50am each day and will be supervised by the Senior Leadership Team and Support Staff until 9:00am. No child should be in the playground before 8:45am.
In the event of inclement weather during playtimes: children will remain indoors and be supervised by the Senior Leadership Team, SFO and Classroom Assistants.
Snow and Ice
Soft Facilities Operatives (SFO) are contracted to create a safe route, (one metre wide), from the main point of access to the school. In our school this is the pedestrian gate on Erskinefauld Road to the main entrances of the school and nursery. Where possible, our SFO will also clear a safe route from the Clippens Road gate to the infant entrance and nursery.
Where there is reduced access due to adverse weather, you will be informed by text message. If the playground remains slippery during the day, the children will remain indoors during intervals.
