At Woodcroft we aim to stay open as much as possible. Every day counts in a child’s education. We expect parents and carers to ensure their child attends school every day, unless they can demonstrate exceptional circumstances, and we follow the same principles regarding school opening. However, we must consider the safety of the school community. Due the forecast of more snow all day Friday (MET Office checked at 6.00am), in addition to the continued freezing temperatures, we feel that it is unsafe to open the school today. We also want to provide parents and carers with sufficient notice in order to make any child care arrangements. Thank you for your patience during this difficult week of extreme weather. Keep warm – we will see you on Monday.

The school looks lovely in the snow?

We aim to make decisions that give parents and carers 24 hours notice. Unfortunately, the current weather system is very unpredictable. This page will be updated regularly.
