If at all possible, we will stay open when there is severe weather such as deep/drifting snow, very high winds or widespread flooding.
Parents and carers have the responsibility for getting pupils 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 office if your child is absent due to severe conditions making the journey unsafe.
We will try our very best to stay open during severe weather. The main reasons we would have to close include:
- Safety around the site and building
- Lack of heating/water
- Closure of the school kitchen
- Staff being unable to get to school in enough numbers to make it safe for the children to be supervised during the day
If the school needs to close, parents and carers will be informed via email, text or phonecall. Parents and carers will be required to collect their children from school. If you ask another parent or responsible adult to collect your child, you will need to inform the school office as we will not release children to other adults unless we have permission.
