Warning - Icy Roads

Icy conditions outside school premises


Due to the continued freezing weather conditions and a yellow weather warning of ice, the paths around the outside of the school premises are extremely slippery. Currently the icy conditions cannot be easily seen on the paths. We would recommend wearing appropriate footwear and taking your time whilst walking along these paths whilst the conditions remain.


To improve the safety of the people in our community we have been able to disperse grit onto these paths in the hope of making them safer to walk on, however, we must stress that the maintenance of these paths are the responsibility of Reading Borough Council, and the school (St John’s Primary School) accepts no liability for slips and trips.


Please do be careful whilst walking and driving around the school whilst these conditions persist. The forecast is currently for rain on Friday and milder conditions next week so hopefully the icy conditions will now be short lived.
