"Hi Chris, thanks for the messages on the blog - they make interesting reading. I just wanted to let you know what the situation is in school (guess you already know but just in case!). We have opened as usual, few staff unable to get in but we are managing and really enjoying the snow. Not often we have enough to make 4 giant snow men in our playgrounds. Take care, drive carefully and if stuck at home for any reason follow your own advice and read a good book! Best wishes, see you soon. Ali."
Three quarters of our schools managed to stay open yesterday and it is brilliant to hear about the way colleagues are keeping the show on the road against the odds. Congratulations to Ali and the team at Victoria Primary School!
