Will there be pre-emptive School closures?

Snow plough coming to an area near you soon!

A “rare” Red Warning has been issued by the Met Office for snow in many parts of Wales and some transport infrastructure has already been disrupted for tomorrow morning. Some trains have bee cancelled as have some school buses, but as far as I can see there’s been no mention of school closures anywhere. I find that strange but not unusual.

Every time it snows, or there is a fear of snow, we play the game of waking up and tuning into the radio to hear the ever growing list of school closures. And it never fails to amuse and amaze me that the decision to close a school cannot be taken in advance based on best information from the forecasters.

If early decisions were made it would make it far easier for all parents to plan their care arrangements with far more warning and that can only be a good thing for the kids affected.
