Severe Weather Advice

Plans for Emergency Closure of the School 2014/15

Now that winter is well and truly underway, we thought it would be useful to outline the procedures in place for any school closures during extreme weather conditions.
It is the intention to keep the school open unless there are severe weather conditions i.e. snow or insufficient heating. During spells of extremely wet/snowy weather please send your children with Wellington boots (to be changed in school) and warm clothing.
Should we experience icy or snowy conditions, every effort will be made to clear or de-ice the main entrances and footpaths into the buildings. Once in school pupils will be kept for the whole school day, unless conditions deteriorate. It is important that you are aware of the following ways we intend to communicate any school closures to you.

Texting - we can text you as long as we have your up to date mobile phone number.
