Emergency School Closure

If you’re new to the area, the winter can be pretty severe here and it’s not unknown for the school to have to close on occasions because of heavy snow. In the event of inclement weather, power failure or breakdown of the heating system, we may need to send pupils home at very short notice. It is the school’s policy that we will not allow any child to leave the school unless we have made contact with the parent. If the school is closed because of heavy snow, there will be a message giving a date for re-opening on the answering machine and a regular update will be posted on the home page of this site.

A system is in place for notifying parents in cases of emergency school closure.

You can contact us on 01620 810435 . We would appreciate, if it is likely to snow and that you expect to be away from home for the day, that you contact the school before 9.00 am to let us know.

The children’s safety is at a premium. We welcome your co-operation in this matter.
