I hope you have all woken up to some fabulous snow this morning! Further to our recent letter we will endeavour to keep the school open. However, please be prepared for a potential closure if we are unable to staff the school. I will update you with information this evening when hopefully it will rain and melt the snow. Enjoy and have fun!
