Adverse weather conditions

PROCEDURE FOR SCHOOL CLOSURE DUE TO BAD WEATHER

 

Decisions about closing the school or sending children home early will not be taken lightly. We will always endeavour to keep the school open when we are safely able to do so.

 

In the event of snow or bad weather, a decision will be made by the Executive Head Teacher as to whether the school will remain open or will close.

 

Severe weather overnight

If a decision is made not to open the school then this will be communicated to parents in the following ways:

  • as a text message  
  • Via the website  
  • Trax FM will also broadcast up to date information about school closures every half hour. You can tune into Trax FM on 107.1 to 107.9 or visit their website, www.traxfm.co.uk.

 

Weather deteriorates during the day

In the event that we have to close the school during the school day we will notify parents by:

  • A text message asking parents/guardians to collect children. It is important that you keep the school office up to date with contact numbers.  
  • We will post information on the school website

 

During the winter months the children still have outdoor play at breaks and lunchtime. Please send your child to school with appropriate warm outdoor clothing and sensible school shoes.
