Snow Closure Procedure

Despite snow being forecast during winter months, please be assured that a decision to close our school would only be made in exceptional circumstances and we never anticipate closure.

In the unlikely event of closure we will always try to give parents as much notice as possible. The most reliable source of information is the school website. We will also inform local radio stations. In addition, we have a school system which enables us to send text messages and emails to parents/carers. Experience suggests that this is not always reliable at times of high demand on mobile networks and demands are greater when travel arrangements are disrupted.

We will liaise with our bus and coach operators but parents / carers are advised that delays are sometimes inevitable due to traffic and weather disruption.

If for safety reasons we have to decide on closure part way through a school day because of deteriorating conditions we will update the website and use the text/email system to inform parents. Please discuss arrangements with your child to ensure that they are clear about where to go and how to communicate with you in the event of early closure.

If your child is unable to attend school due to the weather conditions please contact the absence lines in the usual way.

Regardless of weather conditions public examinations are never rescheduled.
