Update on school opening

Update: 7pm Monday 11th December

We are going to do our best to get the school open tomorrow (Tuesday 12th December). However, please check the school website in the morning. We need to be sure that the site is safe and staff can get in to teach the students.

Please be aware that there will be a limited bus service available if we do open. Some bus routes have already been cancelled and others are unlikely to to go in to rural areas and villages where roads have been untreated. Where buses are running, students should go to a bus stop on a main road for the specified time, where this is possible.

Currently, the restrictions we know about are as follows:

Route 1 - not picking up at Filkins.  Will start at Symrell Farm then in to Lechlade where pickups will be on the main road through the town only.
Route 2 - Lechlade and Kempsford pick ups on main roads only, not going into Whelford.
Route 3 - not running.
Route 7 - not running.
Route 10 (minibus) - not running.

All other routes are currently running but may have some disruption due to changes in conditions overnight and therefore may only come along main routes that have been cleared and gritted.

If students cannot get in to school, I will be asking teachers to set work on Show My Homework where appropriate.

We strongly advise students have a warm coat, hat, gloves and suitable footwear.
