Dear Parents and Carers
SCHOOL CLOSURE NOTIFICATION – STORM EUNICE
Following discussions with a number of different agencies and the forecasted poor weather conditions, I have taken the decision that all Secondary Schools in the Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership Trust will be closed to staff and students on Friday 18th February 2022.
Some of the schools are located in the ‘red’ warning area, specified by the MET Office. A number of other schools are located on the fringe of the ‘red’ warning zone and as such, we cannot guarantee the safety of children, parents or staff on school sites. In addition, members of staff may not be able to travel to and from work safely.
Where possible, schools will be operating virtual learning systems and children should continue to work from home. Details of the arrangements for this will come directly from your child’s school.
I appreciate this decision may be unpopular with some parents and carers. However, I have taken the decision as early as possible to enable parents and carers to make plans and avoid last minute disruption first thing in the morning.
Remote Learning Procedures for today
For Friday 18th February 2022 all lessons will be taught remotely
In order to access remote learning, students should check both their School email accounts for links to live lessons as well as their SIMS Homework app for any additional set work.
Please contact your relevant Director of Achievement if there are any issues.
