In the event of serious snowfall or other severe weather conditions, it may be necessary to close the school because:
A decision to close the school for the day will normally be taken by the Headteacher early in the morning in consultation with the Chair of Governors. Such decisions are normally taken by 7.30am. The procedure is then as follows:
Parents and pupils should always assume the school is open unless they receive a specific message from the school to say that the school is closed, and that message is also posted on the school website.
Please note that coach and minibus companies who operate school transport routes may decide not to run when the school is still open. Parents should always check for themselves whether these transport operators are still running.
School closure during the day
If weather conditions deteriorate during the day, a decision may be taken to close the school early to enable staff and pupils to get home safely.
In this event, parents will be notified by dojo, the school website, the school social media pages and by telephone for children who get school transport. If parents cannot be contacted, we will keep children at school until they can be picked up.
Parents will be expected to make arrangements for their children to get home safely as soon as possible.
