Snow and Ice - Important Information


I have been contacted by parents from Crossdale this evening to let me know that there has been considerable snowfall on the roads around school today.

Unlike other schools in Keyworth, Crossdale is not situated on a road that is typically gritted by Nottinghamshire County Council during unusually cold and icy conditions. Adams Hill can become especially treacherous if untreated – we have seen several small accidents on Adams Hill over the years when cars have slid backwards and off the road, or into other vehicles.

Therefore, in order to minimise the risk of pedestrians or motorists being injured near Crossdale School, we would ask that, during icy and dangerous conditions, motorists aim to park up before reaching Adams Hill and complete their journey on foot. Obviously, this means some families will need to plan to leave 5-10 minutes earlier than normal. 

If necessary, I will update you in the morning about conditions around school.
