Snow Day Information

At Beechfield School we will always endeavour to keep the school open, however on occasion, severe weather may mean that it is unsafe for children and staff to get in to school.

With this in mind, if you think the school may be closed due to severe weather conditions, please follow the guidance below:

  • Check on Hertfordshire County Council’s website
  • Listen to local radio BOB FM 106.7 & 106.9
  • Check the Head's Twitter feed @HeadBeechfield
  • Please do not call the school as it will be unlikely anyone will be on site.

If we are still open:

  • Please walk to school if it is safe and practical to do so.
  • If you have to drive, please drive safely and park away from the school to avoid congestion, taking care not to obstruct driveways.
  • Volunteer to help clear snow from the playground (bring a shovel!).

If we are closed:

  • Stay safe and have fun.
  • Keep checking our social media for regular updates.
  • Volunteer to help clear snow from the playground to help get the school open.
