Bad Weather & School Closures

Very rarely there may be a school closure due to snow or ice, or due to other reasons beyond our control, ie burst water main.

If at all possible, we will try to keep the school open, but we may have to take action to ensure we can maintain proper standards of Health and Safety. In these cases we will make a decision based on common sense and by following local authority guidance.


In the event of closure will endeavour to notify parents by:
A message on this website - this will display on a banner at the bottom of the homepage

Via the Class Dojo messaging system (if you have signed up to it)

Via School Ping, our Parent App 


If you have learned of a school closure, and you are sure it's accurate, please inform other parents you may have contact with.
