Bad Weather Procedures
In case of snow or inclement weather conditions.
On very rare occasions, the school may need to close because there are insufficient staff to provide safe supervision or a sensible education on site (there may be other reasons such as fire/flood or other circumstances out of our control). We will try to keep the school open and will only close if it is absolutely necessary, this will include our Wrap Around Care.
In the event of inclement weather conditions and the possible closure of the school:
- Listen to HEART FM (102.7 FM). It is best to use the radio to find out if the school is open rather than try to telephone - our telephone lines are likely to be very busy. You can also view the Radio station website pages for school closures and updates will be available there.
- We will place information about closure on our website and update our Twitter, Facebook and Class Dojo accounts
We would never normally close the school on the basis of weather forecasts unless the weather was so bad already that without significant improvement it would be impossible to open. Decisions about closure are made on a daily basis.
