In the event of bad weather

In every circumstance we will try to keep school open, if however, weather conditions are such that there are health and safety reasons why we have to close school the following systems will be in place to keep you updated:

  • The front page of the school website will be updated with clear information. This may change during the day as conditions change so please keep checking.
  • We will notify the local radio stations who will broadcast information.
  • We will try to send a notification text or email to parents, carers and staff.

Please try not to telephone the school unless there is an emergency as the lines will be very busy.

If the school needs to close during the day we will update the website and endeavour to text/email parents and carers. There will always be a place in school for students to stay until the end of the normal school day if they are not able to travel home when school closes.

Teachers will add work to "Show My Homework" for their classes to complete during any closure for bad weather. Parents/carers are asked to ensure their child accesses and completes this work to the best of their ability.
