Head Clare Flecther said: “We understand the importance, for working families, of being able to keep the schools open, when it is safe to do so.

“Many of our staff live locally and so we have adequate staffing for the numbers of pupils we have had in the schools. “Snowy days give us specially opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, have fun and learn about the seasons through first hand experience.”
