In the event of serious snowfall or other severe weather conditions, it may be necessary to close the school because:
- Local conditions mean that the school site is unsafe;
- Travel in the local area is severely disrupted or hazardous;
- Weather conditions elsewhere mean that teachers who live further away are unable to get to work safely and we do not have enough staff to operate the school properly.
A decision to close the school for the day will normally be taken by the Headteacher early in the morning in consultation with the Chair of Governors. Such decisions are normally taken by 8.00 am.
