snowAdverse weather conditions and unplanned events

Conisborough is a community comprehensive school and our intention is to always remain open in adverse weather conditions and during unplanned events such as Transport Strikes.  We have never been in a position in which we have had to close the school to our families.

Each academic year we prepare a Risk Assessment in the event of snow. Our maintenance team are fully equipped to ensure the school is safe and all access areas are cleared of snow / ice and gritted.

Before the site is fully opened our Health and Safety team will check the premises and the temperature of the building.  Should there be snow fall, parents and carers should check the school website for updates.  If there is disruption to transport services it can mean some staff cannot make it to school.  In such cases we have a prepared timetable of activities for students.

The winter time is crucial for our GCSE students as they prepare for exams and we will prioritise these classes in the first instance.

We understand that some children will find it difficult to get to school if there are severe disruptions to the transport system and parents and carers should make that judgement especially if there is a health and safety concern.

In this case students should make use of the resources on the school website and the E Library plus other assignments and tasks set to study at home.

On returning to school a note from the parent/carer should be written in the student's Contact Book and presented to the Form Tutor / Attendanace Team.
