Adverse weather conditions
The school will stay open if at all possible when there is severe weather, including snow and flooding. Parents have the responsibility for getting students to and from school safely and need to decide if the journey is safe when severe weather affects transport and/or walking conditions.
You should inform the school if your child is absent due to severe conditions making the journey unsafe. Only if you consider that there is a real danger of your child not getting home safely should you come into school to collect them. If conditions worsen in the school day and you feel it is absolutely necessary to collect children, the school should if possible be contacted prior to you collecting your child from the main school reception. The school may have to close early in the event of adverse weather occurring during a normal school day, if on-going risk assessments dictate such.
Please ensure that you have discussed with your daughter what arrangements are in place for her to get home safely on these occasions. On such occasions, the school will message all parents by text and allow students to communicate with parents by mobile phone.
Information about school closure will be posted:
- via email notification
- to our Facebook page
- via our Twitter account
- on our website and appears as a ‘pop up’ on the Home Page.
We will endeavour to get key messages onto these sites by 6.30 a.m. Please check the above closure notices in the order in which they appear for reliability.
