Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 29th November 2019

29 November 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

There has been a distinct wintry feeling in the air today. Therefore, this week’s bulletin also serves as a timely reminder to check that school has all the correct contact details for you and other family members; this is particularly important should we need to contact you urgently.

As winter approaches, I thought it best to remind you of what to expect if we experience any extreme weather conditions. Schools do everything they can to remain open in adverse weather conditions. During severe weather conditions, such as flooding or snow, schools are required to stay open for as many children as possible. Occasionally, headteachers have to make the decision to close their school for health and safety reasons, including inaccessibility or risk of injury.

Should this situation arise, you will be contacted initially via text message so it is very important you update your contact details regularly. We will also post a message on the school website, our Facebook and Twitter pages and on the Gateshead school closure website


Have a great weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
