In cases of severe weather shutting the school, finishing early or closing after school supervision will always be the last resort.
Every effort will be made to keep you informed of decisions as soon as possible via the website and schoolcomms. There would also be an announcement on ‘The Wave’ 96.4FM.
- We understand if local conditions where you live are such that you believe it is inadvisable for your children to travel to and from school, of course you should then keep them off school.
- If, during the course of a day, you are concerned about your child getting home because of the weather conditions it is fine to collect them early.
- School will not close unless the situation is regarded as extreme. Very rarely, conditions can get so bad during the day that we feel it advisable to end the teaching day early.
- We will, whenever possible, let pupils have fun in the snow during breaktime but we will balance this with keeping them warm, well and safe.
