SCHOOL CLOSURE - 2nd November
As you are aware there is currently an amber weather warning in place as storm Ciaran moves towards Devon. An amber warning presents a risk to life, but there is also a large amount of uncertainty about this weather front which means it could increase to a red warning overnight. The combination of wind, rain, and the storm moving over warm sea waters increases risk of very high wind speeds, flooding and trees falling.
An emergency strategy meeting has taken place today and it was agreed that we need to ensure school leaders fully appreciate that the current weather warning presents a risk to life and could worsen.
Based on the information we have; Devon County Council have taken the decision today to ask all staff where possible to work from home.
Pupils will be able to access their work remotely via Class Charts and staff will be available via their school email addresses should further advice be required. All information on how to access the work in this way is available on the school website.
