**** Severe Weather Warning - School Closed Friday 18th February 2022 ****

Dear Parents and Carers

You will be aware that there are severe weather warnings in place for tomorrow, Friday 18th February 2022.  I have risk assessed our school site and looked at the advice from West Berkshire Council which includes:

  • The Met Office and Fire & Rescue agencies are discouraging travel unless necessary, which is why people that can are being encouraged to work from home.
  • Hazards expected include flying debris which could result in danger to life, damage to buildings with roofs blown off and power lines brought down, fallen branches and some uprooted trees, transport issues, the potential for prolonged power cuts.

As a result of our site risk assessment and this advice I have taken the decision to close the school tomorrow – Friday 18th February 2022.  

The safety of our staff and students is paramount, this is not a decision I have taken lightly,

School will reopen again for our new Spring Term 2 on Monday 28th February 2022.
