Bad Weather Procedures
In case of snow or inclement weather conditions.
The school sometimes has to close because there are insufficient staff to provide safe supervision or a sensible education on site. We will try to keep the school open and will only close if it is absolutely necessary, this will include KIA our Before and After School Care.
In the event of inclement weather conditions and the possible closure of the school:
- Listen to HEART FM (102.7 FM) or RUTLAND RADIO (97.4 - 107.2 FM). It is best to use the radio to find out if the school is open rather than try to telephone - our telephone lines are likely to be very busy. You can also view the Radio station website pages for school closures and updates will be available there.
- We will send a message via Parentmail to parents when possible.
- We will also place information about closure on our website and update our Twitter, Facebook and Class Dojo accounts
We would never normally close the school on the basis of weather forecasts unless the weather was so bad already that without significant improvement it would be impossible to open. Decisions about closure are made on a daily basis.
