Severe Weather Advice for Parents/Carers

During periods of severe weather we will strive to provide a service by:-

  • Keeping the school open whenever possible
  • Ensure access to the school are as safe as reasonably possible
  • Make every effort to minimise possible disruption to education for our pupils

However, in the event of a school closure the Children’s Services Emergency Planning Team will provide advice parents/carers of the situation by using the following methods:-
