The Highcrest Academy is one of three schools in the area to be closed this afternoon

First published in News Bucks Free Press: Photograph of the Author by , Reporter

SEVERAL south Bucks schools have closed early this afternoon due to 'adverse weather conditions'.

Pupils at the Highcrest Academy in High Wycombe, Widmer End Combined School and Little Kingshill Combined School were the first to be allowed to go home early after closing shortly after 1pm today.

West Wycombe Combined School and the Wycombe Grange Pupil Referral Unit have now followed and sent pupils home.

The Meadow School in Wooburn Green has been shut all day due to urgent maintenance.

Parents of pupils at Highcrest were informed of the closure, while those with children at Widmer End are being urged to come and collect their sons and daughters if possible. After school clubs have also been cancelled.

Staff at Little Kingshill say the roads around the school are starting to become dangerous due to the amount of snow falling there.

Keep up to date on the list of school closures by going to http://apps1.buckscc.gov.uk/eforms2005/SSSchoolStatus/default.aspx.

What adverse weather conditions? there is less than 1CM of snow on the paths, and the roads only have a little slush on them. Some of us remember walking to school with the snow up past our knee's...

Snow stopped falling over an hour ago, as forecast. Major roads and bus routes have been gritted and are clear.

How ridiculous, and yet so expected.

By deciding to close at 1pm those schools actually forced parents to leave work and to drive through the snowy conditions.

Had they waited and/or looked at the forecast they would have noted that snow was due to stop by 3pm.

This is exactly what happened and by 3.30pm roads were already clear and snow had long since disappeared.

Too late by that time of course because Head Teachers were too quick to hit the panic button...

Who makes the decision on whether a school should close or not? I presume it's the Head. In which case who are they accountable to? Perhaps it's poor decision making or perhaps it's poor information. In fairness maybe a judgement call was made and it was the wrong one. Happens to us all!

It seems very odd to let kids out into an unsafe environment, cars sliding about... especially the ones avoiding the kids playing chicken on Totteridge Hill.
I just don't get it, those kids had no comprehension of the consequences... to other pedestrians or the road users. We all know who would get the blame for an accident... the driver!

Why is the Meadows included in this article when the reason for closure was because of maintenance? The children were sent home in the morning because there was no heating in the school not because of the weather, as stated on the schools closure list.

What annoys me more is that schools will be closed for voting on the 2 May. I dont suppose there will be an article about this in the BFP.

Ah but! In the 'good old days' we didn't live with the dreaded'Health and Safety". If you slipped on the ice, or in my case, slipped on a piece of coke (the fuel type I hasten to add, dropped by the caretaker fuelling the antiquated heating system in the nasty old Nissan huts,) you were probably chastised for not being careful enough or for fooling around, now? You definitely sue! I truly do not agree with this culture, but sadly it does exist and perhaps, in some cases, the head teachers are over cautious.

I agree with you lady Ratz.
Except that the teachers were the last to go home at my local school. Partly because they had to wait for all the children to go (and not all were picked up early) and partly because this was all just due to panic about the children being safe on site and getting home safely thanks to Health and Safety. Therefore many teachers stayed on to do some paperwork. What I don't understand is if the bus routes were all still running (which they were) and there was no threat to them (which there wasn't) then why did the schools feel that it was necessary to close?

Laura has mentioned a child from High Crest who has fallen down and been injured. I wonder what people like Sid and retchub would say if schools were to insist on keeping all the kids in until the usual closing time and they took two hours to get home – worried parents would complain and some posters here might say the teachers were lacking in commonsense not to let them go early.

(Anyway Highcrest is a only re-revamped secondary modern school so it’s not that important if they lose a bit more education.)

Actually she did not fall down she was hit by a car that lost control in the snow! Regardless of what school it is all children have the right to be protected against unnecessary dangers.
