During severe weather we will try to keep schools open whenever possible. However,
this is while we still take into account the health, safety and wellbeing of both
staff and pupils.
The decision to close the school can be taken by either the Headteacher or by the
Director of Education. In some cases there may be only partial closure for particular
year groups but the same procedures apply.
We try to inform parents of closures as early as possible but the weather can be
extremely unpredictable and this is not always possible. If a school is closed before
or after it has opened for the day a text message will be sent out to parents. Central
FM will also be informed and the school & nursery closures page will be updated. Bus and taxi firms
will be contacted and arrangements will be made for pupils to remain in school if
they cannot return home safely.
