    Schools just cannot win, if they close they are abused by parents for doing so. If they stay open they open themselves up for being taken to court if a child has an ACCIDENT. Aditionally as ofsted does not take into account adverse weather the school gets marked down for poor attendance.
    Quite right but some on here would not dream of letting that get in the way of a good moan.

    One poster wrote about lazy teachers who can't be Rsed and so on. It is of course the head teacher's decision about closing or not and they normally contact their staff the night before. Those same 'lazy' teachers will then probably use the opportunity to catch up on marking, assessments etc. just like they were doing the previous evening."
