In the event of snow or ice, schools' facilities management staff are tasked with clearing and maintaining a safe access route from the school gate as soon as weather conditions permit. They can be assisted in this task by pavement gritting machines operated by roads maintenance staff, where and when the other roadways and public access safety priorities allow. The level of assistance to schools with snow and ice clearance is held under regular review, but there is no intention to include the bulk of playgrounds or playing fields in any winter maintenance arrangement. Outdoor exercise at break times will, therefore, continue to require decisions by school management in light of prevailing conditions.
