POND Meadow School in Guildford has closed today (Friday, January 18) in anticipation of snow.
Pond Meadow School has closed and Guildford School is partially closed due to expected snow.
Headteacher David Monk has told parents the school, in Bellfields, said he made an early decision to close.
Parents are told to check the school website and updated information will be posted by Parentmail as well as the school's answerphone.
Mr Monk said: "There is always uncertainty with these decisions particularly when the forecast is for daytime rather than overnight/early morning and I apologise if this happens to be a wrong decision in hindsight.
"I have discussed the decision with Surrey LA Officers, the Chair of Governors and Transport and have taken into account the current available forecast and advice.
"I am hoping that by making an early decision it will allow you to make some plans rather than being told at 7am in the morning or, even worse, that your child is coming home at midday."Mr Monk said he expects the school to be open on Monday (January 21).
