We are OPEN!

School has reopened following the recent snow closures. It has been excellent to see everyone again and hear all about the snow-filled adventures! Thank you to everyone who took the time to say thank you for the communication throughout last week. We always endeavour to ensure that we keep parents as up to date as possible and informed of what is happening in school. We are just glad that everyone is safe! Welcome back and we look forward to seeing you at the beginning and end of each day!

Friday 2nd March-School Remaining Closed

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you have been enjoying the snow and making memories with your little ones. We made the decision to close the school as the safety of everyone connected to the school is paramount. Today, we have taken all factors into consideration including the fact that the roads around Grantham and Sleaford and connecting roads have either been impassable or closed. The official guidance to schools this afternoon remains that the situation has not improved and is unlikely to change in the next 24 hours. Schools have been advised that travel is not recommended unless absolutely necessary. To ensure that we prioritise the safety of everyone, we have taken the difficult decision to remain closed on Friday 2nd March.

I am keen to let you know this as early as is physically possible so you can make any necessary arrangements whilst the school is closed. We are aiming for the school to re-open on Monday and will ensure that all channels of communication are updated to confirm this ahead of Monday.

I hope you all continue to be safe and warm. We look forward to seeing you next week when hopefully all will have returned to normal!

Best Wishes,

Mr Sam Eden (Headteacher)


School Closed 1st March-Snow Closure

Further to public safety advice issued by LCC this evening as well as our own updates from weather forecasts for this evening/tomorrow, we have taken the decision to close the school to ensure the safety of all school members (pupils, parents and staff). We wanted to let parents know as quickly as possible as we understand that arrangements will need to be put into place. Please be aware that we have not made this decision lightly and have done so to ensure the safety of everyone.

As tomorrow is World Book Day and children were due to dress up, we will celebrate this on Friday 9th March where children will be invited to dress up instead. We cannot wait to see their dress up creations.

For now, we hope that everyone stays safe in these difficult weather conditions and will update you further tomorrow on the status of the school for Friday.

School is Open-Update

Wednesday 28th February-Update-12pm

After looking at the weather conditions for the morning and forecast for this afternoon, we have decided that the school will remain open for the rest of the day unless the weather changes dramatically. Should we make a further decision mid-afternoon, we will communicate this as mentioned in the letter sent out on Monday. The children are having a wonderful day and will be undertaking a Snowman Building Competition at lunchtime with their friends and the hot school meals have just arrived, so the children are warm, safe and fed and having a great day! We look forward to seeing you later.

Class Thailand Trip to Woolsthorpe Manor-Cancelled

Dear Parents/Carers of Class Thailand,

We have just had notification from AC Williams that they have cancelled the coach trip to Woolsthorpe Manor tomorrow (1st March) meaning that the trip is now cancelled. This is beyond our control as a school and we will look to reschedule this as soon as we have been given alternative dates. All money paid will continue to support the trip taking place on an alternative date. Tomorrow is World Book Day and we appreciate that, as the children were attending the trip, they may not have a costume for the planned dressing up. Please note that there is absolutely no pressure to dress up and we will host a book related theme day in the coming weeks for Class Thailand. However, if children from the class have a dress up costume they wish to wear, they are more than welcome!

We are very sorry for the cancellation of the trip and will be in touch in due course to let you know of the rearranged date.

Best Wishes,

Mr Sam Eden Headteacher
