Occasionally, if the school needs to close during the day (for example, the weather deteriorates) a decision may need to be taken to send pupils and staff home early.

We will use the Priority Contacts (with PR) on the school’s database to inform parents and carers about this. If you have asked for contact before your child is sent home, we will contact you.

Please ensure our details are kept up to date and contact the main office with any changes immediately.

How to find out if the school is closed

Check the school website! Details are usually updated by 7:00am. We will also update our social media channels (Facebook & Twitter) with the latest news on the school closure.
