Child Safety Online - A practical guide to parents and carers whose children are using social media
In the event of adverse weather conditions please listen to the local radio stations for regular updates. Please assume we are OPEN unless you hear otherwise via one of the official methods of communications – school website, Parentmail or BBC Radio Suffolk. In the event of snow, please ensure your child/children come to school in wellington boots (with shoes to change into) and coat. They will not be allowed out to play unless they have the appropriate footwear and warm clothing.
If anybody who lives nearby feels able to volunteer to help clear snow from the school playground and car park entrance early in the day (7.30am) on “severe weather days”, we are compiling a list of volunteers in the office and would be very grateful to hear from you!
