Late opening for students tomorrow – Tuesday 12th December 2017

Notice to all parents

Following an assessment of the playground and outside spaces at The Wren School this afternoon we have taken the difficult but essential decision to delay opening the school tomorrow, Tuesday 12th December until 11am.

Due to the rain and melted snow on site, we have a large amount of surface water on our external walkways and playground spaces and with the likelihood of temperatures plummeting to -6 degrees in Reading overnight and early tomorrow morning, the risk of black ice is very high.  To ensure the safety and wellbeing of both students and staff we have decided to delay opening to allow time for the ice to melt.

There will be no PE lessons at Prospect Park on Tuesday 12th December and students can wear appropriate alternative footwear.  Also, netball club has been cancelled tomorrow night.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes,

Mrs J Broadhead
