Emergency Closure Advice 2016/17
Very occasionally, the operation of the school may be affected by poor weather. Clubs may be cancelled and there may be disruption to transport providers. We thought it would be a good idea just to remind parents of the procedures.
To inform parents, in the first instance we will contact parents via the school text messaging service or phone. It is important that parents ensure that we have their most up to date contact number.
Please contact the school office if you need to update your contact details.
In the event of the school needing to close we will:
- Inform parents via text message
- Inform Shropshire Council to update the county wide school closure list which can be accessed here.
In addition, BBC Radio Shropshire (96FM) will broadcast details of closures and changes to school opening hours when there is snowfall in the county.
During periods of widespread severe weather, the Authority operates a helpline for parents. When this is active, details about how to access this will be shared via local media.
For more information about preparing for winter is available from the Shropshire Council page here.
