Notice to Parents - Adverse Weather

Given the recent adverse weather conditions, we would like to remind you of our procedures with regard to possible school closures.

We will attempt to open as normal wherever possible and will only resort to closure or early closure in exceptional circumstances. If we decide to close the school, we will endeavour to make that decision by 7am. We will then post a message to that effect on this website and we will inform both Signal Radio and Radio Stoke so that information can be given out in their regular bulletins. Parents will be notified via text message and should ensure that all contact details held in school are up to date.

We appreciate that a decision to close can cause major inconvenience to parents, particularly parents of younger children. However, we need to consider the state of pathways, steps and slopes around the school, the condition of the main roads in the area (for staff and pupils’ access to school), whether power, heating, lighting and water services are functioning properly, whether catering can be provided, the availability of public transport and the immediate weather forecast.

We hope that we will not have to put these procedures into practice but would ask for your forbearance and understanding if we do.
