Snow and Bad Weather

Dear Parents/Carers,

With winter and cold weather approaching I thought I should inform you of what will happen and how you can find out whether the school is open or not.

Let me assure you that wherever possible we will do our utmost to keep the school open. However, as most of our teachers and I live outside of March there is the possibility that we may not be able to get to school due to heavy snowfall overnight. In this instance please listen to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire (95.7 FM), Heart Radio (102.7FM) which will inform you if the school is closed. There will also be a message on the school website and on our twitter feed ( @Cavalry_Primary on

If snow falls during the day we will remain open until 3:15 p.m. unless advised to close by other agencies. In this very rare instance all parents would be contacted to collect their children.

Please note that children must be collected by an adult (persons over 16) and the office must be informed if another adult is collecting your child/children.

In case we need to close during the day it is important that you make sure the school office is informed of any change of telephone numbers.

I hope this explains the procedures for extreme weather conditions.
