School Closure

What happens in the event the school is closed?
In the event of heavy snowfall or any other emergency the Headteacher may need to make the decision to close the school. This decision would not be taken lightly and all efforts would be made to keep the school open wherever possible. Should the decision be made however, all parents will receive a text via Teachers2Parents. It is essential that if you change your mobile number that you inform the school, so we can ensure we are able to contact you.

For those parents who have children that come in on transport, there is an added procedure in place regarding the communication with yourselves and transport:

If school decides not to open
School informs the Transport Team
Transport Team informs operators
Operators inform parents transport will not run

If school decides to close early
School informs the Transport Team
Transport Team informs operators
Operators inform parents and provide transport (where safe and possible to do)

If Transport Team or Operator cancels transport
Transport Team or Operator decides to cancel transport on safety grounds
Transport Team informs the school
Operators inform parents transport will not run
