St. Francis' Catholic Primary School

"For it is in giving that we receive." St. Francis of Assisi

Weather: 08:21 School is closed for today. Please click and read the full message.

Dear Parents

My apologies for the late message, but as you are probably aware - the website crashed - it was a national crash with the company that hosts the site - not just us. Thank you to the PTA for putting messages on the Facebook Pages.

Closing the school is always a very difficult decision to make, nad it is not taken lightly. We have a number of factors to consider, with safety of children and staff being paramount. When we had to make a decision this morning, the cul-de-sac was not safe and the main Whyteleafe Road and Hills were not gritted, making them dangerous to drive on. In addition, some staff had already alerted me that they could not get in. 

Please watch for messages later in the day. We hope to be open tomorrow, but will have to watch to see what happens - more snow is expected later today and overnight. Friday is supposed to be very bad too. 

Mrs Wheeler
