Emergency School Closure Procedure

A decision to close the school site is only taken as a last resort and after conversations between the Headteacher, the Chair of Governors and the Buildings Manager.  In reaching a decision many factors are considered, such as;

  • Heating availability and temperatures inside the school buildings
  • Condition of water pipes in school and availability of running water
  • Condition of the immediate local roads
  • Ensuring the playground and paving around the school can have secure clear pathways to allow safe movement
  • Ensuring the emergency exits and egress pathways can allow safe movement
  • Ability of adequate staff numbers, to reach school

Closing school in adverse conditions is only a last resort.

The school website will be updated on the homepage, Facebook and Twitter.
