A whole school e-newsletter is produced every Friday for the week commencing the following Monday. Newsletters are in the form of a pdf (digital) copy sent out via email.
Newsletters are also available to download as pdfs from the school website, together with any other relevant correspondence that has been sent home.
Parents are kept regularly informed of new calendar or news events / information and photographs via the homepage of this school website and also within each relevant section of the site. All weekly newsletters are available to download and any other information relevant to parents is also housed within the 'Parents' section of the site. The homepage of this website will also provide important information regarding emergency alerts or school closures if they arise (see the section below).
Text Messaging Service
Parents are encouraged to provide ONE mobile number that can be used by school for our text messaging service. This service is used in cases of school closure due to adverse weather or emergencies where quick communication with parents is necessary. It may also be used from time to time to send other relevant messages to parents eg keeping parents informed regarding children on residential trips.
Emergency Alerts / School Closure
In the event that we make the decision to close the school due to poor weather or other extreme circumstances we will inform the Local Authority and local radio stations. We also post updates on the homepage of this website and send a text message alert (usually only in the event of school closure) to all parents that have requested this service. We do not inform parents when we are staying open.
Parents are urged to listen to the radio and look at the Local Authority website for updates rather than calling school. Telephone calls to school can hamper our efforts to sort out staffing arrangements in difficult circumstances.
Further information is available on the Emergency Alerts/School Closure page.
