Birchensale Middle School will be closed on Monday 25th January due to severe weather conditions.
The school carpark and approach roads are already icy and the temperatures are forecasted to be as low as -5 degrees C until 9.00 a.m. on Monday morning.
After 3 separate accidents on the Bromsgrove Highway on Friday morning, I have made the decision that it would be too unsafe to ask staff to drive into school early Monday morning.
We will work on clearing and gritting our carpark on Monday and expect to open as normal to vulnerable children and the children of key workers on Tuesday 26th.
On Monday 25th, teachers will be teaching the full remote curriculum online, so your children can access all lessons as normal. I’ll apologise in advance if there are internet access/IT issues.
I have made this decision early to provide as much warning as possible to all families, but I do apologise to everyone inconvenienced by this decision.
