    Many schools close too easily in an attempt to avoid any legal action for someone who slips and hurts themselves. Change the compensation culture.

    Looks like my boy is one of the "lucky ones" whose school is still open. Top effort to John Rankin!!

    What a surprise that the staff don't even make the effort to open when any snow appears; no doubt it won't stop them from going shopping etc.

      You are an arse. My daughters a teacher and no she cant get in as we live on an ungritted hill and she has no intention of risking her life and others and wont walk the 10 miles to school. So, I do question your mentality at times.

      Typical ignorant, uninformed comment! It's not the staff who make the decision to close or not, it's the headmaster / headmistress.
