Cold Weather Information

Cold Weather Information

Please ensure that your child is wearing suitable clothing.  In colder weather this should include gloves, a hat, scarf and a warm waterproof coat.  A spare pair of socks is also helpful to keep in PE kit bags.  Please ensure all items are clearly labelled.

 

If we do get a snowy day, children who have appropriate clothing and also have a change of suitable waterproof footwear such as wellies, walking boots, etc will be able to go out and play in the snow and have lots of fun.

If the temperature drops below zero or if there is a wind chill factor below zero, staff may take the decision to keep children inside, but wherever possible it is referred that they enjoy fresh air and exercise.

 

Willaston Primary Academy will only close due to bad weather in extreme circumstances - these circumstances include:

  • no heating, water or electricity
  • staff are unable to get to work leaving adult/pupil ratios unsafe
  • the school site is unsafe for members of the school community

 

In the event of a school closure you will be able to check in a number of ways:

  • advertised on Radio Stoke, also you can check for school closures on the Signal Radio Website on https://www.signal1.co.uk/local/school-closures/
  • information would be posted on this page
  • you would receive a School Comms communication
  • you can check our facebook and twitter feeds for instant updates

 

Please do not telephone school to check.  If the school is closed we will contact you.  if you have not heard on any of the above avenues, then school will be open.
