School Closures

On days when there are planned early closures parents will normally receive at least three days advance warning by means of a letter delivered by their children.

In the event of emergency early closures (e.g. caused by bad weather, fire or a failure of the heating system) the children will be given the choice of going home (if buses have been arranged), staying in school under supervision until the normal closing time or going home to a friend’s house.

Under these circumstances no advance warning can be given so we would ask parents to instruct their children what to do should such an emergency occur and in particular to arrange alternative shelter should the family home not be available.

In such circumstances the school maintains close contact with the bus company and tries to ensure that all pupils from outlying areas are dismissed in good time so that they may get home safely.  During periods of extreme weather conditions parents are asked to tune into Central FM which will broadcast details of any school closures. We will also contact you through our ‘text messaging’ system and post updates on the school’s website.
