Weather Conditions

Cold Weather

When the weather turns colder and the nights are getting darker, please ensure that all children are dressed appropriately. Coats, hats and scarves should be worn to keep out the cold. Turning on the heating, often means the air is drier and children feel the need to drink more. 

Warm Weather

Could you please ensure that your children are dressed appropriately for the weather and that sunscreen is applied before they come into school. Hats and water are essentials. Water is available from the drinking water fountains, from classrooms but it is nice for the children to have their own water bottles with them as well.. 

Severe Weather

During severe weather we will always update this website with the most recent information, alternativley you can use the LGfL Open Check service to see if the school is open.

Seven Mills Primary School will stay open if at all possible when there is a severe weather such as deep /drifting snow, very high winds, widespread flooding. Parents and carers have responsibility of getting children/pupils to and from school safely and need to decide if the journey is safe when severe weather affects transport and/or walking conditions. Parents and carers should inform the school if their child is absent due to severe conditions making the journey unsafe. If your child has a disability and/or learning difficulty your decision to take the journey must take this into consideration. Please consider this carefully and only keep children at home if conditions are unsafe.

If on the rare occasion school closes at a time within the school day, parents/carers will be informed by text message and email. If conditions worsen in the school day and parents feel it is absolutely necessary to collect children, the school should, if possible, be contacted prior to collection. Please avoid collecting children before the end of the day unless you feel their safety is at risk.

Please ensure your child is appropriately clothed for cold/wet/windy weather and that shoes/boots have a good grip for icy conditions.
