Great Binfields Primary School has made the difficult decision to close today (Thursday 1st March) due to the adverse weather and travel conditions. The drop off and collection of children from our site during severe weather conditions would create a high degree of risk to safety and the majority of our staff travel some distance to get to/from school. We are therefore very concerned about children and staff being able to get home safely if conditions further deteriorate as they have done in the past few hours.
Rest assured we will reschedule Book Day and Dress Down Day for next week. Further details to follow. We will of course inform our school community regarding Friday’s plans by 3pm today so please watch out for text messages, emails and web site information.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused, but hope that you realise we have not taken this decision lightly.
Perhaps the children can get into World Book day by reading a favourite book. Further activities can be found on our school website and there are lots of activities to choose from on Education City and Abacus once the children have come in from enjoying the snow.
Thank you for your understanding, Ms Rogers
