There are occasions when the school has to be closed in order to ensure the safety of both the students and the staff. In most cases the decision to close is made if snow or ice means that the buses cannot run safely or if the school site is deemed unsafe. Similarly, if a significant number of staff are unable to travel to school because of the severe conditions (some of whom travel a considerable distance), then the decision to close may also be necessary. It is, however, our desire and intention to keep the school open whenever possible. In the event that severe weather causes us to close the school, we will inform you as soon as possible. Information will also be posted on our own school website. Please keep a regular eye on the school website for updates, and tune into one of these stations for announcements of school closures:
Free Radio 96.4 FM
Radio WM 95.6 FM
Heart FM 100.7 FM
Please do not call the school to find out if we are open. Please keep your mobile phones switched on as we use the 'Group Call’ service. Please also, ensure that the office has your latest mobile phone number.
