It is always the school’s aim to remain open except in the most extreme circumstances when we are forced to close because there is a risk to the health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors.

Information for parents

Parents will be informed of school closure in the following ways:

  • A message will be posted on the school website as soon as a decision is made
  • A text message will be sent to all parents (please ensure we have your up to date mobile phone number)
  • There will be an announcement sent to BBC Radio Sheffield
  • We shall update our Twitter and Facebook feeds

Closure will be avoided wherever possible. Please do not contact the school in bad weather to check whether school is open. Unless announced as above, we will be open.

Parents should be aware that in extreme weather conditions significant staff or pupil absences may result in emergency timetabling being put into effect.

Should weather conditions deteriorate during the school day and a decision to close school is taken, parents will be informed by text and pupils with permission will be sent home with a letter of explanation.
