SOUTHERN ACADEMY TRUST STATEMENT ON SNOW CLOSURE
16:00 on 28 February 2018

We have taken the decision to notify parents and staff that St Andrew's will be closed on Friday 2nd March.

This is in the light of information received from the met office, Dorset and Wiltshire transport regarding the weather situation that will prevail tomorrow. We are advised that even if it were possible to get to school in the morning there would be very severe difficulties getting home for students and staff. School buses are cancelled already. We are advised that other schools in the North Dorset area are also closed for these days. If schools are able to open on Friday we will change this notification but this is not expected to be the case.

We appreciate this will be difficult for parents to manage but we must take the health and well-being of over 2000 people seriously and we feel to open would put staff and students at significant risk. It is not possible to run schools without staff and many staff and students travel significant distances to reach their places of work.
