Rationale

In Waringstown Primary School we recognise that it is essential to promote the health and safety of all in our school community. We will work towards providing an environment where each pupil's physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development is promoted with his or her best interests in view.

 

In the event of disruption caused by heavy snow the prime concern of the school will always be the health and safety of the pupils, parents and staff.

Even when opened, the decision as to whether or not to send a pupil to school during severe weather must be at the discretion of the parents, taking into account factors such as local road conditions and the availability of child-care.
