Mum’s fury over blizzard walk

What are your arrangements for dismissing pupils at the end of a school trip?

Recent item from the Derbyshire Times:

Debbie Skellern, of Chapel Lane, Middleton, was shocked to find teachers……. had left her 15–year–old daughter Victoria to make her own way home during a blizzard on Thursday night.”

It is important to make sure you have in place clear and suitable arrangements for the end of school visits and that the time of day and weather conditions are taken into account.

Staff in charge should have the necessary experience to make sensible alterations to arrangements if the prevailing conditions and circumstances dictate.
