Snow Plan

If the School is closed we will notify you on the front page of this website, on social media and by telephone.

It is always our intention to keep the school open; we have only closed for a handful of days since the school opened. On these occasions the roads around Beckington were dangerous, especially at the pick-up and drop-off points.   Making the decision to stay open or closed during bad weather is incredibly difficult for us; what works for one family will not necessarily work for another!  Please always make your own decisions about your individual and local circumstances, snow falls in very different patterns over short distances.

If the school is going to close, a member of staff will endeavour to ring you between 7:00am and 7.45am. We will post the closure on our website and also post on social media. We will not Parentmail as this facility can crash during high volume use.

Please note that it may also be necessary to close the school early if there is heavy snowfall during the day. In such situations, it is imperative that our children and our staff are able to get home safely, so we would encourage you to make provision for someone to collect your child if you are working away and may get delayed.

Working from home in inclement weather

As well as enjoying the snow, if children cannot get into school please continue with homework, mental maths activities, reading and creative writing as well as using the BBC Bitesize KS1 and KS2 resources.
