Carn Gwaval Closed All Day Today (1st March)

Thank you very much for your support yesterday. I do hope that you all made it home safely and had an opportunity to enjoy the unusual weather in more suitable clothing.


I have spoken with the emergency planning department here on the Isles of Scilly and their advice for today is as follows:


We are expecting deteriorating weather conditions throughout the day which will have a negative impact on transport links on the island of St Mary’s.


Following this advice, I have taken the decision to close Carn Gwaval to pupils today. Even though staff are able to get to school it is clear that the journey home could be treacherous and I have to consider children’s safety.


Ironically, the year 10 Health and Safety day is still going ahead, and these students should be congratulated for their commitment. We will make sure that they are released as quickly as possible.


We are monitoring the weather situation closely, and we will make further announcements regarding tomorrow as necessary, aiming to give parents as much advance notice as possible.


Thank you for your continued support.


Yours faithfully

Mrs Jo Yeates
Head of School
