In the event of snow
In the event of extreme weather, such as when heavy falls of snow develop overnight and continue into the following day, or extreme icy conditions occur, parents should take the following advice about the possibility of school closure.
Whenever possible, Nettleworth School will remain open. However, we have to consider the safety of all our children and staff, some of whom travel a great distance into school each day.
- Should the need arise, in severe weather we will aim to make a decision by 7.30am if the school is to be closed.
- A text message alert will be sent out to parents/carers informing you of school closure.
- We will then report the closure on www.ngalerts.co.uk and inform the LA.
- We will also contact Radio Nottingham (local radio) weather line, in order for them to announce the school closure, at the earliest possible opportunity.
We would ask all parents to check for a text message, teachers2parents app notification or listen to Radio Nottingham for any announcements of school closure.
Once the school is open for the day we will endeavour to remain open until the end of the normal school day.
Phone lines do become extremely blocked as you can imagine in these circumstances. We will text parents if we make the decision to close the school at an earlier time.
Our aim is to open every day but hopefully, this information will give some clarity.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
