I am pleased to announce that all our teaching staff are safely in school and we are open!
West Sussex stipulate that schools cannot close unless “circumstances make it impossible or dangerous to open the school to pupils.” We need to be aware of how extreme weather conditions could affect pupil safety. Whilst snow falling in this part of the world is rare, it is not extreme.
Some schools have already taken the action to close or close for this afternoon. We have not made this decision. We will continually and carefully monitor the weather conditions and forecast. If we do decide to close early, we will post on our website and notify parents by text (please ensure our office has up-to-date contact details).
Please check this website for future updates.
A decision about school being open tomorrow will be made in due course.
Many thanks, Mr Weston
