Bad Weather

In special circumstances, e.g. very severe weather conditions, it is possible that pupils may be sent home early and parents are requested to make any necessary alternative arrangements. It is most important that parents make sure the driver knows where to deliver their child. It is not always possible to forewarn parents of occasions when pupils will be allowed home early due to severe weather conditions so parents are requested to telephone the school if there is any doubt or difficulty.

Updates will be posted on the school website and the local radio will be informed of any school closures.
