Key Information  »  School Closure

Schools are at the centre of all communities. They help to keep children safe as well as allowing families to function normally, therefore the only reason that would close school would be if the safety and well-being of pupils was compromised.

In the very unlikely event of school needed to close to pupils, families would be informed at the earliest opportunity. This would be done via one (or hopefully all) of the following;
  • parent text service (please ensure your details are up to date)
  • school to parent/carer email service
  • school website announcement
  • weekly newsletter
If you think school might be closed, please refer to these before contacting school. Phone lines need to remain free so that staff can report their progress to work.


This is very unlikely to close school. It may limit what school can offer due to reduced staffing levels.

When it has snowed, school will open and close at normal times so that learning can continue as close to normal as possible.

If snow is forecast to remain on the ground for several days due to low temperatures, we will attempt to clear the playgrounds so that the children can get fresh air during the school day. Staff will begin clearing safe routes around school from 7.00am. If anyone from the school community can spare some time to help this process, they are more than welcome!
