All children should continue to learn from home and join their Teams meetings throughout the day.


Thank you.








We are watching the forecasts and weather warnings for heavy snow in our area from early tomorrow morning.

We will only know the extent of the situation nearer to the time. It does look as though this will be an unusual and significant weather situation. You know that we will open the schools wherever possible but we must also be mindful of the safety of children, parents and staff. If we are unable to open the schools we will inform you by text by 7.20am. If we are able to open the school, please take time to read the information below. Following the procedure/plan will help everyone to feel safe and comfortable with the arrangements. 




At the Saltergate Schools we try our very best to remain open in times of bad weather although snowy conditions are particularly challenging on such a large site.


We will always update our situation on this page and also send you a text.


We have a snow clearing plan and aim to have the site cleared so that school can continue to run as normal. If we are unable to make the site safe by the start of school due to heavy snowfall we will


  • At 9am will ask the parents of frontline services and working parents to bring in their children first
  • At 10am, will allow all other children to enter the site.


By doing this it gives us time (with staff help) to clear the snow and make the site fully safe for everyone.


Thank you for your patience during adverse weather conditions.
