Sefton Schools that shut in the snow

There has been a lot of discussion about schools closing in the snow. Across at Liberal England they have been reminiscing about their school days in the snow. I remember 1963-but that is another story.

After several enquiries I decided to ask about which Sefton School have shut. This is the response:

As you are aware schools make their own decisions, according to local circumstances, and are not required to seek the views of the Local Authority prior to their decision making.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
