Severe Weather

Contingency Plan

SEVERE WEATHER CONTINGENCY PLANDuring the winter period Barnies will do it’s utmost to open on time and offer a full service.

We must adhere to government and legal advice to ensure the safety of both children and staff is assured. In addition, we are governed by specific staff:child ratios and can only accept children if the correct staffing level is present.

Therefore, if staff are delayed or unable to travel and our ratios become restrictive, we will need to consider other options such as:

  • late opening
  • early closing
  • applying a first come first served or fairly shared provision

Should this situation occur you may need to wait with your child until staff levels are correct.
We appreciate your co-operation and understanding with this matter should this unpredictable situation occur.
