Sometimes schools have to close temporarily because of bad weather, loss of utility services (such as gas, electricity or water) or other emergencies.
In the event of snow our school policy is to stay open if at all possible. We would say, however, that while snow may be light in the local area staff have to travel from much further afield and we can only open if safe staffing ratios can be maintained.
No closure decision is ever taken lightly and it is always discussed between the Headteacher and the Chair of Governors. If there is ever a decision to close it will be posted on the school website and on the NCC website .
A text message will also be sent to all those numbers we currently have on record. As such please make sure that you let us know whenever you have change your number so that we can amend our details accordingly.
