Unavoidable Closures

In extreme circumstances the school may be closed to protect the health and safety of pupils, staff, and the wider community. In most cases this will be due to adverse weather.

In the event of a forecast of heavy snow or other serious weather conditions, please be aware that hazardous roads at peak times may affect access and travel plans.

Please use your judgement in terms of your child attending school in difficult weather, particularly if you live in inaccessible areas. Parents who make use of the transport service will need to contact them directly for information.

We recommend making contingency plans if you have work commitments. Children may need to be received home earlier than the normal time, particularly if the weather deteriorates further during the school day.

If school is closed you will be informed by one or more of the following:

  • ParentMail
  • ClassDojo
  • Local radio stations
  • School website
  • A recorded message on the school answer machine

Please ensure any information you act upon is reliable. Verify with an official source any information received via social media or messaging services.
