Friday 2nd March
School is open as normal to all students and we will monitor the situation throughout the day. Please take care on the roads and pavements surrounding the school as there is lots of ice. For the safety of our staff and students please drop students outside the school gates wherever possible.
If at any stage a decision is made to close the school the information will be put onto the WCBC School information pages by the Headteacher as soon as the school site has been inspected and information is available – http://wrexham.gov.uk/english/education/school_status.cfm
If anything changes parents will be kept up to date throughout the day via text updates and information will be made available on the schools Twitter account and the school website.
We politely ask that you please check for online updates before calling the school directly for information.
Thank you for your support.
