Kingsmead School is closed on Tuesday 12th December 2017. Although site staff cleared many of the paths and walkways on the school grounds yesterday we have had to make the decision to close today. It was clear from early this morning, as the Head of School tried to reach the school, that link roads and routes to school had worsened overnight due to extremely cold temperatures. This has made travelling conditions hazardous and the safety of students and staff to and from school has to be key when making any decision regarding the school being open. We had really hoped that this wasn't going to be the case today and that we could have opened.
We would like to direct students and parents to the relevant work that has been selected by staff and shared on an earlier news item on the website.
We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day and local site staff will maintain clearing the site ready for Wednesday.
The Christmas concert originally planned for tonight has been rearranged for Thursday 14th December.
