During severe weather conditions, we make every effort to keep the school open. However, in some circumstances, following completion of a risk assessment, we may decide that it is necessary to temporarily close the school. In such circumstances, we will always attempt to give parents and carers advance notice, but due to the unpredictable nature of some weather events, this may not always be possible.
Reasons for closure may include:
· Too few staff members can reach the school, or advice is issued against travelling
· Risk of injury to pupils, staff or visitors due to the weather conditions
· A failure of the school’s heating systems
We will communicate with you about school closure via the school website and the ‘School News’ APP, so please ensure you have downloaded the APP and enabled notifications in your settings. Also, please check the school website regularly for updates.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Decisions to close the school are never taken lightly, but unfortunately may sometimes be necessary for the safety and wellbeing of the school community.
