The decision to close the school is based on two key factors.
If access to the school is deemed to be hazardous or there is clearly going to be insufficient teachers to teach the children, then the Chair of Governors & Headteacher will make the decision to close the school.
We will endeavour to do this as early as possible as we appreciate school closures effect many people. However, there are many factors to consider:
What can you do to help?
If there is snow, then our lunches may not be delivered even if we are open. If in doubt, please send your child with a packed lunch. If hot meals cannot be delivered this may be considered as a contributing factor for school closure, as we cannot feed the children.
Snow During the School Day
If the school closes during the day, we will share this with parents.in the ways stated above. It is impractical to phone every parent so please make sure you monitor the website & pass on information to others.
If You Work Out of Area
Please make arrangements with a parent who is closer to school so they can collect your child. Please let school know of this arrangement
