Snow Closure

undefined

Adverse weather conditions

As winter approaches with a vengeance, there are likely to be occasions when some pupils will find travelling to and from school difficult or dangerous.

As a school, we VERY RARELY take the decision to close completely, but if we do close we will advertise this via the "ticker tape" message on the school website and via local radio stations (Hallam FM and Radio Sheffield).

If we decide in the morning that we cannot open the school we will also aim to text and email parents before 8.00 am.

Please note also the following extract from our School Information
Booklet:

Does school close on snowy days?

During inclement weather please check the website as this will be updated regularly during the school day.

Firstly, the school will not close as long as any pupil remains here. If weather conditions are bad, and obviously deteriorating, the sooner everybody is away from school the better for all concerned.

If the weather should deteriorate during the day, please feel free to collect your child early.
There is no need to telephone to ask, simply arrive and report to the secretary. Please try to avoid telephoning the school if at all possible as we need to keep the lines open to make arrangements for those facing particularly difficult journeys, or for those parents wishing to give permission for their son/daughter to walk home.
