Adverse Weather

Decisions on School Closure

In the event of adverse weather, the decision will be taken whether or not to close the school by 7.00 am each morning.

The decision will be influenced by a number of factors, including:

  • Whether or not sufficient staff can get into school in order for an appropriate level of staffing to be provided;
  • Whether or not the conditions on site present a significant risk of harm to pupils and adults.

If the decision is taken to close then this will always be a 'last resort' decision.
