SEVERE WEATHER & CLOSURE OF SCHOOL

It is at this time of year that we need to remind parents of the procedure in the event of the school having to close early due to bad weather or other emergency.  Every effort will be made to contact parents by text or telephone and announcements will be broadcast on local radio stations (details below).  Any children who have not been collected will be kept in school until 3.30pm.  It is therefore very important that you have supplied us with up-to-date emergency contact mobile telephone numbers.

If the school has to be closed before the start of the school day, we will endeavour to text parents and messages will again be broadcast on local radio and will appear on the websites listed below.  You are asked to listen to the radio or access the websites and avoid telephoning the school,  the radio station or the Local Education Authority if at all possible as we will need to keep the telephone lines clear for emergency use.
