Severe Weather

In the event of weather conditions deteriorating a decision may be made by the Senior Management Team to close the school early.

In the event of this occurrence, parents/carers will be contacted immediately via Groupcall text and email. An announcement will also be put on the homepage of this website and social media pages.

All pupils who travel via school transport will be collected by their normal means and taken home.

If school transport is unable to pick up your child in the morning due to weather/road conditions you should not arrange to send your child to school by other means unless you are prepared to arrange collection of them at the end of the school day.

For information about school closures you can contact the school.  You can also find school closure information via the following methods:
