Transport providers have contacted us in concern that heavy rainfall is expected tomorrow morning and into the afternoon. This is on top of moderate to heavy rainfall expected tonight, and a weather warning issued. The quantity of surface water may well make it challenging for buses to collect students at the normal end of the school day, and for our staff to safely return home.

We have therefore, in conjunction with Somerset School Transport, determined that Kingsmead School will close at 1.15pm for all students on Thursday 7th December 2023. Should it be considered necessary by operators, buses may be recalled still earlier in the school day.

We are mindful of the disorder caused if schools transport is cancelled at very late notice, as it was on Monday 4th December, and have sought to avoid this by making the decision today.

Students in receipt of free school meals can collect a packed lunch from the canteen at 1.15pm. The Year 11 mock results event will take place on Friday 8th December 2023. We would ask that each child has keys to their own home, if no parent/carer will be present upon their return.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter
