Emergency Closure Procedure

The decision to close or partially close a school can only be made by headteachers who have knowledge 'on the ground' of their schools, in consultation with their Chair of Governors wherever possible. The decision should be based on access to essential services (heating, water etc), staffing levels, transport safety, and site safety.

When there is extreme weather schools are occasionally forced to close for the day in the interest of everyone's safety. On such mornings, parents should listen to Heart FM for details of school closures and/or visit the Local Authority website for a list of schools that have confirmed their closure for the day.

School will also endeavour to text parents regarding any closure ... please check your phones.
