Dear Parents/ carers

 Given the deteriorating weather conditions and the red alert that has been issued by the Met Office, we will be closing the school at 10.50 this morning and will be shut all day tomorrow.

 Buses will be leaving at 11.10.

 The Food and Cookery exam scheduled for this afternoon will now be taken next week.


Kind regards

Gary Schlick

 We have had an indication from the Met Office and Bristol City Council that the weather may deteriorate significantly tomorrow afternoon.  This may necessitate the early closure of the school. 

 We will make a decision during the morning and if it is necessary to close the school we will inform parents through text, email, twitter and our website.  We will communicate any decision as early as possible and whilst I expect the school to be open as normal, I hope this warning will enable you to consider any arrangements you may have to put in place.

 In the event that the school needs to close early the buses will be rearranged and we will communicate their new departure time.

 We will not take the decision to close lightly and will only do so in order to ensure that all students can get home safely in the weather conditions.  Please ensure that you have made suitable arrangements with your child should the decision be taken to close early.
