Wimps

The snow hasnt even started falling yet either, If the forecasters got it wrong (not saying you have Matt, but the schools will have only looked at BBC or something) Then its a wasted day

Re: Rossendale school closures

Heard on the radio that Belmont is supposed to be closed.

All saints Catholic don't appear to subscribe to the idea of letting the radio or websites know, they just put it on their own home page
So as yet, they are still open.

There was only a few kids in All saints on Tuesday.

This might because they aren't run by a Lancashire authority

Cheers, spooks.
Just to clarify, they've recommended they close but it's up to the schools to decide to close or not.

Rochdale school closures

Re: Rossendale school closures

When I was a lad I can not remember the schools closing down because of snow.and it snowed all winter in those days not just for a couple of days and definitely not for 2 inches, the mam-by pamby state strikes again, All the kids not at school were sledging down peel meadow.

Without defending the situation too much given the fact that generally I do agree especially when it comes to only slight snowfalls, the fact of the matter was things are very different at present day compared with 'back in the day'.

Back in the 60's, 70's and even 80's a lot more people used to walk places, people weren't as reliant on the road network as much as they are now, clearly traffic these days compared to the 60's and 70's is extremely more significant.

Secondly a lot of schools didn't close years back simply because a lot of the students and teachers were very local, normally within the same town or neighbouring town and no further. These days staff travel from miles around to schools these days and that includes from senior staff to even dinner ladies and the likes.

So a combinin factor means things are more difficult these days and the above are some of the primary reasons more schools close these days than in yester-year.

Matt.
