Snow and Bad Weather

On very rare occasions, it is necessary to close the school due to unforeseen circumstances, such as adverse weather conditions where there is a health and safety issue or when staff cannot reach the school.

We recognise that parents appreciate advanced warning when this happens, but sometimes the unpredictable nature of weather means that we may have to make a decision on the morning in question.

If it is necessary to close the school, we would contact parents via email and Twitter and would add an emergency message to the front page of our website.

We also inform local radio when we have to close in winter, and they broadcast this.

If parents do NOT hear from us, they should assume that the school is open – even if other local schools are closed.
