RE: WINTER WEATHER
As we enter the winter period when difficult travel conditions can apply, I would like to remind you of our arrangements should we suffer disruption from extremes of weather.
If the school is to be closed on any school day because of adverse weather conditions or a particular problem on the school site, we will update the school website (www.turton.uk.com), Twitter www.twitter.com/TurtonSchool and Facebook www.facebook.com/turtonschool with the relevant information and also contact local radio stations who have agreed to make regular announcements. These include BBC GMR, Tower FM, Heart and Smooth Radio.
During the Day
If the weather conditions deteriorate during a school day to the point where buses cannot be guaranteed at the end of the day, or where making the journey home could be dangerous, we will make arrangements to release the students early as long as they have been able to contact you by telephone to let you know. If they cannot get home or don’t have a key, they may be allowed to go to a friend’s house.
These are the procedures we have agreed with the Local Authority and we hope that they will allow us to keep our students safe while avoiding unnecessary inconvenience to yourselves as parents.
If you have any individual concerns about these severe weather arrangements, please do not hesitate to contact me at school.
