After assessing the site ( 2pm ) St Bede's will be open to Year Groups 10, 11 and 13. I appreciate the patience shown by parents and carers during the last few days, but as you can imagine, the ever changing weather conditions make it difficult to plan. My site team, key staff and Sustain Groundsworks have worked incredibly hard to move the snow on our large site to get us in this position. However, flooding could be our next problem!
The bus company will be using only the main roads in the Moorside, The Dene, Shotley and Delves areas all other buses will be operating normal routes.
I appreciate localised conditions can vary so the final decision to travel will be left with the parent / carer.
The Year 10 and Year 11 PPEs will go ahead as planned this week.
Can I also ask for your support when dropping off and picking up students. The piles of snow have reduced parking provision.
Thank you for your understanding.
Mr N. Harrison
