School Transport – Tuesday 6th March

School and college transport services – Tuesday 6  March


Although the majority of the road network is returning to normal, following extensive clearance work, some of the more remote rural areas remain affected by significant snow drifts and melting snow, which is affecting some school transport routes.  We need to ensure the safety of children using school transport, both when travelling and walking to and from their designated bus stop.


Herefordshire Council expect to operate most contracted mainstream school, SEN and college transport services tomorrow (Tuesday 6 March).  


We will update our alert system with those affected routes, please check to see if your school or route is listed.  If there is any change to SEN transport, the service driver will contact parents directly.

School opening arrangements – Monday 5th March

School will be open on Monday 5th March, however, we will be operating a staggered arrival time, any time between 8.40 and 9.30 am to allow time for travel and to ease congestion.  We would encourage parents / carers to park on the main road as we are unsure of the state of Westland View.

Sorry, but there will be no Breakfast Club as staff will be busy clearing the site.

The school bus will not be running as Herefordshire Council have cancelled all school transport for Monday.

We hope everyone has enjoyed the snow over the weekend and anticipate that everything will be back to normal by Tuesday.

School Closure – Thursday and Friday

School is closing at 12.30 pm today (Thursday) due to the weather.  The school bus will be collecting children at 12.30, assuming that we have received confirmation that someone will be able to meet them off the bus.  Please feel free to collect your child(ren) earlier if you feel the need.

We have made the decision to remain closed on Friday due to the poor forecast – keep warm and safe.

Possible Weather Disruption


Having kept an eye on the weather forecast this week, we expect the school to be open as normal tomorrow (Thursday).

However, as there is the chance of snow during the day, we are asking parents / carers to keep an eye on the website and any messages from school in case of the need to close early.

Bee Aware Assembly

Thank you to Rob Williams who came in to school this morning to talk to us about bees.

We learnt about bee keeping, bee hives, how bees make honey, how we can use their honey, beeswax and lots more.

The children counted how many seconds it took Rob to put on his beekeeper’s suit.


We had lots of questions to ask Rob about bees and beekeeping.


Rob also told us about ‘Bee Aware’ an event he is running at Earl Mortimer College on Saturday 24th February where there will be lots of bee related activities to take part in – all proceeds will go to St Michael’s Hospice:
