School Closure Notification System
In the event of bad weather we have put together a plan of expectations for the school community. In the first instance the school grounds & surrounding area will be inspected for safety of the whole school community use.
Whilst we will do everything within our power to keep the school open, should we have to close the school or implement the snow plan, you will be notified in the following ways:
If the school is to remain open:
Children should come to school in sensible outdoor footwear with a change for indoor use (normal school uniform).
Children will be allowed out to play, in rotation, on the Key Stage 2 field. Should there be a valid reason for your child not to go out please inform the school via a note given to the class teacher.
Children will be asked to follow Snow Safety Rules whist on school premises. This includes:
Please note that snow routes on school grounds will be cleared, salted & gritted but may ice over in extreme weather conditions. Everyone should, take care whist on the school grounds and be aware that the school will not be liable for any injuries that occur.
Paths outside the school grounds are not the responsibility of the school and will not be included in our path clearing operations. Please contact Dacorum Borough Council if you have concerns.
Should we have to close the school for more than one day, class teachers will provide work for the children on the website.
We will aim to work together to ensure a safe environment is maintained for your child, you and the Galley Hill Team.
