But the school has posted on social networking Twitter on Sunday (March 4, 2018) that it would be back open on Monday with “snow more excuses.”

Manor Court Primary School in Chard has also said it will be back open as usual.

 “As the thaw started yesterday (Saturday, March 3, 2018) and there are no reports of further snow we will reopen the school tomorrow,” said a school spokesman.

“The pedestrian entrance at the back of the school remains closed.”

The Manor Court spokesman added: “Due to frozen pipes we may need to keep the Early Years Centre shut for a further day. A decision will be made by 7.30am tomorrow (Monday, March 5, 2018).”
