Severe Weather Conditions
In the event of severe weather parents are asked to listen to the local radio stations which, from 7.00 am onwards, will regularly broadcast schools that have closed.
In addition, we endeavour to contact parents by telephone using a cascade list. We also use a ‘School to Parent’ text messaging service, so please make sure we have your correct mobile number.

We will also list school closures on the website below;
