There are times when the weather is so severe, e.g. very heavy snowfall, that it is considered that the health and safety of pupils and staff are best served by closing the school.
Parents will receive a text message informing them of school closures and further updates will also be sent by text message. The school website will also contain up to date information and advice.
When exceptionally severe weather conditions are forecast for the whole authority and the police are recommending that only essential journeys should be made, the Chief Education Officer may make a decision to close all schools for pupils for the following day. A text message will be sent to staff and parents and regular updates will appear on the school website.
Parents/Carers can also access the OpenCheck link below to see if the school is open.
