Joint statement from Raunds Schools:
“The Raunds schools have made the decision that the schools with not be open to children tomorrow (Monday 11th December)
Discussions have been ongoing all afternoon between the four headteachers
The roads around our schools and around the county are treacherous, meaning that teaching staff may not be able to get to work. In addition, the school sites have been checked and we cannot guarantee the safety of children on the site.
We hope that you appreciate that this is not an easy decision. We can’t please everybody, but have to make a decision that is in the best interests of children and staff. We also thought that giving you additional notice would give you more time to make alternative arrangements for your children.
Where possible, we will be in our schools tomorrow to ensure that they are prepared for Tuesday.
Thanks for your understanding
Matt Coleman, Jay Davenport, Sarah Folkard and Lisa Jeffrey
