Bad Weather

Information for Parents

The school will make every effort to stay open on each day of the school year, yet in extreme circumstances it may be necessary to close the school due to adverse weather conditions. 

Closure before the Start of School

  • A decision to close the school will be made by 7.30 and you will be informed through Parentmail, the school website and local radio. NB: Past experience is that delays have been caused by website crashing and high internet usage means that messages may be delayed.
  • Please do not ring the school as there will be no staff in school to take your call.

Closure During the School Day

In the event that weather conditions worsen during the school day and therefore making transportation difficult then Miss Tai may decide to close the school. In this event parents will be informed by Parentmail and the website will be updated.  Pupils will remain supervised by staff until appropriate travel arrangements can be made. 

Please remember that staff will also need to make their way home and as such we ask parents to prioritise the transport of their children away from school. 

It is recommended that you arrange to pick up your daughter in a place that avoids using Lady’s Close. Experience is that snow can make the bottom of Lady’s Close very dangerous. 

In the event the school will be closed for more than one day

The same process as the closure for the whole day, except Miss Tai may choose to make this decision the night before. The school website and all communication will be updated by 07.30 on the day of the closure.
