Overnight, the weather forecast for Teignbridge has deteriorated with significant snowfall combined with high winds and ice now predicted for the local area, increasing throughout the day. As a result, we have regretfully had to take the decision this morning not to open the school today (Thursday 1st March) on safety grounds.
Whilst the school is a safe environment, we have to consider the risks of travel to and from school for both children and staff (some of whom live many miles away.) Devon and Cornwall Police are have advised against all but essential journeys and we do not feel we can put people at risk in getting to and returning from school given the high likelihood of disruption
We will post update on our website later today about arrangements for Friday. We will also text and email this information to parents.
The school's celebration of World Book day will now take place next week (day to be confirmed.)
