Winter Weather (posted on 11.01.2016)

It now looks as though wintery conditions are starting to arrive and as such EHPA would like to remind you of our Snow and Ice Policy which can also be found under the ‘School Policies’ section.

Every effort will be made by the school to ensure safe pathways are cleared or treated around the site as necessary (following the priority gritting routes set out in the policy), however we are unable to completely clear the school grounds of snow and ice. Be aware that when areas have had salt, grit or other materials applied it is not a guarantee that the paths are completely safe or slip-proof; please travel with caution when moving around site.

With this in mind we ask that all adults take responsibility for their own safety and that of children whilst on the school site, including parents and visitors.  We encourage children to come to school in wellies / boots in wintery conditions and bring their school shoes to change in to at school.  This is particularly important as where possible we aim to allow the children to go outside at break and lunchtime.  Appropriate footwear and a warm coat will ensure your child is able to stay warm.

Please be aware that East Herrington may have different weather conditions to those at your home address.  Please take note of forecasted conditions and ensure that children are dressed accordingly.
