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 them 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.
