We will send a message via parent mail as quickly as possible.
Our staff will always try their best to make sure the school is open for all pupils during term time. However, in exceptional circumstances if may become necessary to close the school. This may be if extreme weather prevents staff from being able to get to or from school safely, or if a mechanical failure develops within school and it is unsafe to remain open. Any decision to close is made based upon ensuring the safety of our pupils and staff. We fully appreciate the inconvenience and difficulties closing at short notice can cause.
We will aim to communicate with parents as quickly as possible to let you know if we have to close.
