We stayed open!

REGARDING your news item on the front page of the Observer (January 25) about the number of schools being closed on the Monday, we would like to bring to your attention to the fact that Little Ridge Community Primary School was in fact open for the whole day.

Our Breakfast Club staff were on site from 7.15am ready to accept children from 8am.

The school was open but parents/carers were invited to bring their children to school for a 9.30am registration to allow them an extra 30 minutes to travel to school safely.

We received no phone call or enquiry from your newspaper to confirm what our arrangements were for that day.

Obviously school closures are quite a hot topic of conversation, and we would hope you would advise your readers that our school was not in fact one of those closed.
