***URGENT UPDATE Adverse Weather ****

Adverse Weather 
As the winter progresses, we can expect a heavy snow fall at any time. While we make every effort to keep the school open, there may be times when we have to close, either for a full day or during the day.
We understand that the majority of our pupils live within walking distance of Ormiston Meadows Academy and can get to school in most circumstances. However, many of our staff team live further afield and have difficulty getting in during heavy snow, making it impossible to maintain our pupil to staff ratios.
There are a number of other health and safety issues we need to consider to ensure the safety of everyone while they are in school.
In the event of snow, please note the following:
Assume Ormiston Meadows Academy will open in the first instance.
Check your text messages – we will let you know if school is going to be closed for the day as early as we can. We will also let you know if school closes during the day by text. If you do not receive school text messages, please let the office have your mobile number. Listen to local radio stations- Heart FM – 102.7FM and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire – 95.7 . They will read out lists of schools that are closed.
Please do not telephone the school – we try to keep these lines open so that staff can contact us to let us know their situation. If the school closes during the day, staff that live near to school will stay with children who cannot be picked up quickly; please travel safely on these occasions and remember the children will be in good hands.

 Here at Ormiston Meadows we are fortunate to have created a fantastic new library space – a bright, inviting room that we are confident will provide an environment which will engage all our children. For our children to develop ‘a love of reading’ it would be amazing for them to have access to a wide range of the latest print books and digital/e-books to enhance their reading culture. We are therefore raising funds to make our dream come true! We thank you for your support
