School Closures/Snow Days

We will always endeavour to keep the school open. In deciding if the school will close we will consider both the
safety of the children, the site and the safety of staff attempting to get into school. Should the decision be made to close the school you will find out in the following ways:

  • We will set the Ring Around Trees off – please make sure that these are close to hand and that you ring the person below you on the list
  • An announcement will be made on BBC Three Counties Radio on 103.8fm
  • Herts County Council’s Website (
  • Our School Website (

Parent/Carers Forum

At Manland Primary we are keen to gather the views of parents and carers of pupils in our school. One way in which we do this is through our Parent and Carer Forum. This comprises a representative from each class who meet with our Headteacher on a regular basis.

Any school matters can be discussed at this Forum; however the Forum is not intended to replace individual discussions with families which are conducted both formally and informally with class teachers and our headteacher.
